This might not be an eye problem, but can be.

You need to call your eye doctor first.

One problem can be strain.

Another can be giant cell arteritis, inflammation of the temporal artery.

This needs further investigation, as arteritis is serious and can cause blindness.

Muscle strain is not so serious.
