Hi, for some time I have been experiencing headaches (forehead) and face pain, jaw pain and neck and shoulder pain.  It tends to get worse when I am looking at a screen or driving.  It makes me feel strange and anxious and like I can't breath properly and I don't know what to do with myself.  Sometimes my vision is affected and I can't focus properly, other times, my hair feels like it standing on end and my face is burning. I have been for eye tests and there is nothing wrong with my eyes, although most of the time, the pain arises in the cluster of nerves between my eye and socket, and then goes to my cheek, and then all around my eyes and face.  I seem to be in constant pain and It makes me feel numb and anxious.  I have a feeling it could be eye strain, but I work with computers all day it is really affecting me - does anybody know what could be happening and how to solve it ?
Thanks in advance.

Perhaps a neurologist will be better qualified than us :) I am betting migraines and auras, but I am not a doctor.
