This is probably not something that is going to have you lose your eye
But have you seen a doctor about this
Or had any testing?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no sir i am out of work and have no insurance. but it is getting worse.
Then you need to call the health department and find out where neighborhood clinics are, and they will be on sliding scale.
A university or teaching hospital medical clinic will do the same thing and is even better.
This can be
cluster headache
another type of headache
Disc disease in the cervical spine
Early trigeminal neuralgia.
You need an eye pressure check as well just to make sure you don't have glaucoma.

good luck

i was checked for glaucoma 4 months ago when i had insurance and all was good. if this sliding scale is obamacare i would rather lose my eye. not being rude to you sir
The sliding scale has been used forever, and it means they take your current financial situation into account.
good luck
