Thanks for posting your query.

A slight headache for a few days, neck tension and area of numbness over right eye seems like it has stemmed out of stress that you may be experiencing recently. A stress more than normal could have triggered this out.

The numbness on the right eye could be due to excessive straining of the eye muscles due to working on the computer or it could be due to electrolyte imbalance due to inadequate fluid intake.

My suggestion to you would be to get your blood pressure checked to see if it is normal. Also, please consume more of fluids. A day off from work and bed rest should help you to get back to normal soon.

It can be a simple muscle ache as you said, too. Simple analgesics like Tylenol should help you. This is available over the counter in the US.

Do write back for further discussion on this.

Get well soon.
