I have noticed that eating certain foods triggers increased pain in my left temple. This temple discomfort is present every day--sometimes it is more intense and sometimes less intense. Spicy foods and exposure to pollens increase the sensations. Since childhood, I've noticed that my left eye often had more intense symptoms associated with pollen allergies than my right eye (redness). Several years ago, a tingling started in my left temple. Initially, the tingling would come and go but then it stayed. Now it is present daily--sort of an ache. My other symptoms emerged at about the same time: sciatica, left back tingling/ache, etc. And, as I have mentioned in other posts, no structural cause for any of these symptoms has been identified. I am wondering if it is helpful to explore triggers for the temple symptoms and avoid them or if that is counterproductive. It's hard not to start searching for more information, such as exploring the associations between physical pain/sensations and foods. However, I don't want to feed-in to my overemphasis on physical symptoms. Any thoughts?
