hi there

Over the last couple of years i have been getting bad headaches but not often enough to see a doctor (throbbing pain on one side of head which seems to radiate to around eye, jaw and ear) This happens usually once or twice a month then sometimes nothing for months

Anyway, i had a headache so bad last week that i had to be sent home from work and another one again on Friday which has lasted til present

What i have noticed lately is my eyelid or area under eye is twitching or there is pain around the eye (always one not both) not unlike a nerve being pressed upon as well as the other symptoms above

I have also been getting a strange sensation like there is something in my eye (not a eyelash but actually like some fluid which leaks out in small quantities)

I should also add that my eye is not red at all but feels like it should be - it is so sore!

It is very strange, almost like I have a "cold" in the eye!

It is noticeably worse after i have been outside in the cold air.

It just seems to be one thing after the other lately, I had a really bad cold about 3-4 weeks ago and actually had to be given a dose of amoxycillin to clear it. I have had three colds this year which is very very unusual for me.

I don't smoke at all (boyfriend does though) or drink a lot and I work in an office with articificial lighting and work at a pc most days of the week

Any suggestions welcome as to what this could be (and how to cure it?)
