Pain in right eyeball, squeezing sensation. History of cluster headaches. Treatment?

Yes I am suffering from a severe pain in my right eyeball. The pain occurs once or twice a day and feels like my eyeball is being squeezed. The area around my eye swells and the pupil becomes smaller. The pain lasts anywhere from 15min to 2hrs and has been going on for about a week. I suffer from Cluster headaches , but they occur on the other side of my head. Do you have any suggestions?

the pain in your eyes may or maynot be related to your headache
the following possibilities need to be ruled out in your case

1.pressures of the eye also known as ocular tension

2.refraction of the eyes

3. blood pressure(at two different times of the day)

4.a thorough ophthalmic examination

Thanks for posting your query..
Are you on treatment for cluster headache?
The pain you are having may be because of ocular strain..
You can take some pain killers to get relieved of the pain..
But get your eyes checked up for any refractive error...
Take care...
