Is it something related to eye problem or should I meet a GP ?

I am facing a problem where I am having bearable headache affecting the areas near the ears. The headchae is accompanied by pain in the eyes. It is not because of problem in my specs but I guess the eye pain is emanating from behind the eyes and I feel like something is trying to push my eyes out of the socket. Is it something related to eye problem or should I meet a GP?

This could be due to stress or what is called tension headache due to muscle spasm or cluster headache it would help if you elaborated on your symptoms regarding the headache being more or less with sleep? and duration of headache you should probably get yourself checked by an ophthalmologist also to make sure it's not related to your eyesight.

You may still want to get your eyes checked up by an optometrist.Change in the lens power also manifests in the same fashion. In some people it also causes eye redness or tearful eyes.

I have noticed that the transparent layer over my the white part of my eye is unusually loose in the past week or two. I have always had string like mucus that I have to take out of my eye every morning. I have been wearing contacts (soft) for the last 6 months. Is this something I should worry about? Should I go see my eye doctor immediately?

I have been on birth control for the past 5 months and in the last 2 weeks i have started to get headaches everyday, dizziness, and pressure behind my eye. I have never had these headaches or eye pressure in the past. Would this have anything to do with the birth control or could it be something more serious? Thank you

Hello,
I am a 38 yo white heathly attractive male who masturbates at least twice a day or more. I am not promiscuous, not as in my younger days...now I just watch internet porn or think about it. I Love sex and have since I can remember back to five years old playing with girls. I expected the intesity to lessen with age, but I have come to find out it is not and I am more and more beginning to embrace my nature as it seems this is how I am wired. Will the fire ever subside?

Ive been having bad headaches above my right eye. My eye looks a lil swollen and that side of my nose is stopped up. I also have quite a bit of drainage. Could this just be a sinus migraine? I went to the dr last week before the headaches started and he said I just had the crud, but no infection.

Hi! I have been having a little pain in my head and neck for a few days. My neck is also a little bit stiff. The headaches are very different from day to day, sometimes they are worse at the evening and sometimes they get worse in the morning, just when I wake up. I'm 14 years old and had a sinus infection just a few weeks ago but I got antibiotics and the headache got over for almost two weeks but then it came back, it's not the same headache though. When I shake my head I feel a pretty severe pain in the bottom of my skull and back of my head. I also have a little bad vision so I use glasses but the past few weeks I realize I'm getting a bit double vision especially when I look at white or bright things.
I'm very worried I hope I can get a helpful answer.
