I get twitching in my right eye under neath my lower lash when it happens I can't control my eye movement etc closing my eye or blinking? I get blinding migraines either a couple of days after or in the night.
I walked into a open cupboard door in 2014 and gave my self concussion the DR sent me to hospital some time later because my memory had started to be very poor I'm still seeing the Neuro consultant now.
My head aches are part of my neck pain but I do have sclerosis in my 3 vertebrae at the top of my neck which also gives me chronic back ache.
Can't win !!

I had a complete body scan and they said I have arthritis throughout my body. I find gently massaging myself throughout my body, stretching and watching my posture carefully have helped reduce the pain tremendously. Most people my age have arthritis but what I noticed was a lot of pain where there were no joints. My muscles were much tighter than I realized and I believe this tightness was causing pressure on the nerves and triggering pain. Massage and stretching along with a magnesium supplements have really lossened things up. People often have tight fascia and muscle trigger points and don't realize how much pain this is causing. I did not just accept the arthritis information and I am glad I didn't. I have reduced my overall pain substantially, I am now very flexible and most of my tightness is gone.

Yes. These can be extremely painful. I usually get them at the same time as I get lower back pain or neck pain. I feel it happens when I strain muscles somehow. It feels like the muscles controlling my eye movements are in pain. I always describe to people it is like have a knife stuck into your eye. I used to get it on one side one day and often on the other the next day. I watch my posture now and how I sit and bend my neck and now I don't get them as often. I massage my neck as well each day and that helps. Try to connect what you have been doing during the day or the day before with when you get this pain. Try resting and after a day or two it goes away. Our muscles and nerves are all connected to gather so often straining one area will cause pain in another. See if you have pain elsewhere at the same time you are having the eye pain. Like I said, I get lower back pain on the same side as the eye pain and it is usually from how I have been sitting. The pain will be on one side of my back, often in my neck and then in my eye all at the same time. Good luck!
