Neck vs Head: This could be occipital neuralgia where the pain originates from the occipital nerves in the back of the head and travel over the top to right above the eye. The other option would be that this could be coming from your neck due to the high cervical facets at c2/3 and c3/4. The nerves exiting this area can wrap around back of head and attach to the same place as occipital nerves.
