Hi do u work on computer for a long time every day ?

If yes then it may be the reason. Better to go for an eye chekup.

Already went to an eye exam and everything was fine.

Was the blood pressure taken for you ? Hypertension cannot be suggested unless your BP has been checked. It looks to me more like tension headache. I used to feel somewhat similar when I was stressed at work, when at office, things were not going all that well. Caused more by anxiety. I had a pressing feeling around my ears as well and I always felt like rubbing my forehead and pressing my eyes slowly with my palm. Take reats for a few days. Go out on vacation for a few days.If the problem persists after coming back, then you should meet an internal medicine doctor.
