Dry eyes, electrical pain at temporal area. Taking medication for high BP. Treatment?

I've been having really dry eyes and I keep thinking something is in them so I rub and flush them out. Today I've been feeling like shooting electrical pain starting at the temporal area and then it shots across my eyelids and face it happens really fast and I'm really afraid. I do have high blood pressure but I take my meds religiously. My blood pressure is very good 117/72.

its very good that you are making efforts in regulating your blood pressure to normal..i advice u practice healthy habits like exercise and fat free salt restricted diets...quit alcohol and smoking habits..for your temporal headache looks like migraine i suggest you take migricure tablets available in markets..but if you get no relief i suggest you to consult neurologist for CT brain to rule out temporal artery abnormalities which can present with temporal pain..practice stress relieving meditations..

Ophthalmologist Dr. Sushama Suram's  Response
thanks for choosing HCM for your query..
Is the pain continuous or momentary?
You could be having dry eyes but this pain may not be related to that .
It could be non-specific due to strain or some sort of migraine.
If it continuous or severe you need to take medications for that..
Dry eyes can be relieved by using lubricating drops but it also need evaluation...
Keep continuing BP medications and your BP is well under control..
Hope I'm clear.. I will be available for further queries...
