Have slight heaviness on head, vision affected, darkness. Can i ask a doctor online?

I have slight heaviness on the right side of my head just above the ear and then that at times shifts to the left and back side and top of the head as well. Also, my vision at times feels a bit affected due to it as in I can see darkness at times - not complete darkness but sort of can t see properly if I am trying to focus my vision on a particular spot. This has started just a few weeks back. The heaviness also makes the upper inner part of my jaw feel weird at times.

You may be having a refractive error which is causing the symptoms of headache which gets shifted to many sites depending upon the amount of eye strain you have had. You are required to get a vision and refraction check up done and use glasses if there is some refractive error in your eyes. You can use some lubricating eye drops which will give you a soothing effect. In case, the pain is intolerable you can take some analgesics as and when required.
