I've been having a lot of internal eye pain, what could be wrong?

Lots of things: Could be as simple as presbyopia with eyestrain or as complex as partial angle-closure glaucoma. Best to have this one checked out to rule-out serious problems with the eyes. Sometimes diseases such as optic neuritis present with "internal" eye pain.

No: Eye exercises do not usually provide a lasting relief from the underlying cause, but occasionally can help in the short term. Mild discomfort is common (just like exercising other muscles), but there should not be pain that is significant. You should be seen by an eye doctor to evaluate other causes of your pain.
