Perhaps eye fatigue: mild headache in various locations does not sound like a worrisome headache. one possibility of it getting better when you close your eyes is that your eyes may be, for some reason, sensitive to the light (photosensitivity). I would try something mild like OTC tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil, make sure you get adequate rest, drink good amount of water each day, and do some relaxation exercises such as yoga.
