From couple of month I feel severe pain often on my forehead.
1. On the center of both the eyes
2. Start of forehead I mean just above my eyes.

Is this usual because I spent 10-12 hours per day working on computers?

Brief Answer:
The symptoms could be muscle tension headache

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.
Based on your description, the symptoms are suggestive of muscle tension headache and eye strain. These symptoms could get aggravated by prolonged computer usage, as in your case.

As of now, there is no need to worry. You can start TAB PROTHIADEN (dothiepin) if the headaches are recurring. Also, reduce your work duration to 809 hours, and take a few breaks in between.

If symptoms persist, you may consult a neurologist.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
