Always see your Dr.: if there's trauma involved! Hitting one's head hard on the desk can easily cause headaches, and even if it's self induced, it warrants you seeing your own doctor and getting it checked out! If you have pressure behind the eye, it can signal some sinus issues or also referred pain from cervicalgia (neck issues). Ask for a referral to an osteopathic cranial doctor (D.O.) to have this treated too.
