Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you are having throbbing sensation in the head and pain on touching... These problems are usually found in local inflammatory lesions affecting the area or in systemic diseases like giant cell arteritis.
Since your last physical examination was done about 3 months back, you need to get examination to rule out giant cell arteritis.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
