Question so that I can answer

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

This can happen when a person has a fever as cytokines (inflammatory mediators) can cause this. What other symptoms are you having, for how long, and have you checked your temperature?

Information

Detailed Answer:
Hi -

You didn't mention how long this has been going on or if you have a fever. If this is an ongoing problem, I recommend that you go in to see your doctor for a physical exam and for lab tests to check for infection or inflammatory conditions.

In addition to an exam, I recommend a complete blood count (CBC) with differential (a count of the number of each type of blood cell). Also, if this has been going on for awhile, an ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate or "sed rate") or C-reactive protein (CRP) to assess if there is an inflammatory process happening. These two are non-specific tests - they don't give a diagnosis, but can show if there is inflammation. Also, an ANA (antinuclear antibody) or other rheumatological markers for autoimmune disorders.

Is your trouble sleeping due to the pain, or something else that you can identify?

Have you been under a lot of stress or feel tense and anxious about something?

Brief Answer:
Thoughts on this

Detailed Answer:
Have your sunken eyes been evaluated? That is not normal for them to be so sunken that you cannot close your eyes. Has your thyroid been evaluated (by palpation and a blood test)?

When was your last physical exam? You need to be seen by a doctor.
