Thanks for your reply sir.
I forgot to tell you that I also feel like my right eye and its surrounding skin moves.. like how a heart beats.
I had photo refractive keratectomy surgery. Is this caused by the surgery?
Is this pain issue really serious? It's curable?

Brief Answer:
It will improve.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXX,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

Is it possible for you to make a video of the 'right eye and its surrounding skin moves'?That will help make a better clinical impression.

It can't be said with confirmation whether surgery have contributed to these symptoms or not.


This does not appear to be a serious issue and will hopefully improve soon.

Hello doctor
Can't make a video of it. It happens only when I sleep ... it's like eye twiching
I am not tensed about anything.. so I think it's not tension headache.
Few more points to tell you
1. When I bring my jaw down, some cracking noise comes from area below the ear.
2. I feel some pressure above eyebrow and near right eye n immense pressure between right eye and ear that goes away if I open my eyes( but pain still remains)
3. Sometimes I get neck pain as well

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

Tension type headache does not directly relate to what we perceive as tension.It is actually related to tension in the muscle fibres of scalp,neck and associated muscles.So,it can well be tension type headache.

Psychogenic element may also be contributing to the symptoms.

Please start taking Tab.amitriptyline 10 mg once a day at bedtime.I hope to see you improving.
