okay so just a few facts about me first:
im a 21 year old male who's from england and currently in america doing some travelling.
i woke up with a really weepy eye and a few days later for about a week ive had this strange feeling mainly behind my left eye which sometimes spreads to the back of my neck and around my ear (all on the left side). the actual eyeball itself hurts sometimes but is random and isn't really painful or uncomfortable but the eye itself looks healthy and doesn't look infected or as if something is wrong. it is a little bit lazy if that means anything? my vision is okay, ive noticed lately it i look just out of my left eye my vision isn't as great when reading small writing but in general with both eyes by vision isn't any different. ive noticed this wierd pain gets worse when outside or in the car and when around animals. so basically i think it's either an infection around my sinuses, i need glasses for one eye or it's allergies to animals or aircon....cos im travelling i have been drinking alot of booze so maybe that might affect it? but anyway let
me know when you can stuff like this makes me worry! im home in 2 weeks so going to go to the opticians then! thanks for your help :-)

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like migraine pain. Alcohol will only make them worse. Drink more water, sorry but it is true!

When you get home make an appointment with your family doc also and get the headaches checked out.

If the pain gets worse or you loose sight in the eye, go to an emergency room for treatment. Increased symptoms are a sign that your body is telling you something is wrong.

Enjoy the rest of your stay.

Hard to say. Could be sinus infection caused by allergies but you could also be suffering from migraines. I have an issue with both and sometimes it can be very difficult to tell which is the problem.
-Chronic abdominal pain due to nerve damage from an open surgery
-Back pain due to arthritis
-Muscles spasms in my neck
-Carpol tunnel in my right wrist
