Question:
About four months ago I happened to be reading and all of a sudden I developed this pain in my left eye, like a dull ache. The same goes for my left ear. For a few days it felt sore. I had my sinuses x-rayed and a series of blood work, had my eyes examined by the eye doctor. All the results came back negative.

Also I felt this pain on left side on top of my head a numbness. It feels like something is pushing into my eye. Could it be my wisdom teeth? I know I have still two I haven't had removed. Also the pain is felt more when I move my jaw ...Visitor from Canada

Answer:
I doubt it's your widsdom teeth, but have them evaluated by an oral surgeon nevertheless. What you are describing are typical symptoms of jaw joint compression problems.
