Headache around left eye

I've been getting headaches around my left eye every day for about 4 months. Start around the same time every morning. Dr checked a few things blood pressure ok and suggested I go to Optician. Health of eyes was fine but I didn't do well on peripheral vision test on left eye. Went back to repeat the test. Missed a few lights again. Now waiting to hear back from optician. Worried myself sick now after googling symptoms. Anyone had anything like this ? I thought it was sinus but Dr doesn't think so. Thanks

Please stop googling it will send you crazy. Call the Optician on Monday and ask for your results.
Make an appointment to see your GP and go armed with the results. Did the GP do a full neurological exam? reflexes etc?
Do you have any other symptoms other than the headache? or a history of migraine.
I get Migraine so I can sympathise with you re the pain thing and to have it every day must be hell.
Try not to panic you have done all the right things and I hope you get it sorted soon x

My immediate thought was migraine. Mine tend to cluster the pain around my left eye.
