I've keep getting this headache for the past 6 weeks. Sometimes it last 5 mintues, sometimes for days at a time. The pain is pretty intense, enough to make me sleep constantly and become immobile and is situated just above my left eye, but on the inside of the eye socket. At fisrt I thought I possibly needed glasses so I went to an optometrist for an eye test and he couldnt find anything wrong either. The pain is slowly starting behyind my right eye now. I'm not sure what it is but it's starting to freak me out.

HelloCustomer

There are a few possibilities with these symptoms. Refractive error has already been ruled out by your optometrist. Another possibility could be glaucoma in which the eye pressure is raised and it can damage the optic nerve of the eye leading to irreversible loss of vision. It is important to see an ophthalmologist to rule this out. Other possibilities could be sinusitis. migraine, tension headache etc. Thanks and best wishes.

My eye sockets have hurt for the past three months. I saw an ophthalmologist, he gave me a dilated eye exam and said he found nothing wrong. Since then I've observed more symptoms that could be important. It feels like the lower half of my eye sockets, directly under the eyeballs and deep, are inflamed, or like they have lots of small shards of glass embedded in them and can't heal. It doesn't go away with sleep. The pain varies throughout the day, and sometimes I go a few days where it seems like it's going away, but it never goes away completely and always gets worse again. It's pretty random and difficult to tell what effects it, but one thing for sure is that doing activities which exert my shoulders and neck for prolonged periods of time makes it much worse the next day. For instance, if I carry many heavy boxes, or if I shovel several times throughout the day, the next day the pain in my eye sockets will be really bad, and it'll stay really bad for a couple days at least. Also, the sides of my neck are occasionally painful, and it feels like the skin around the neck and jaw is tingling and burning, like an odd electricity sort of feeling like the neck had fallen asleep and just woke back up. I suspect that the movement of my neck might have an effect on the eye socket pain, but it's difficult to tell since the pain isn't immediate. What could be causing this? … read more
