It sounds like you: might have a STY. It would be appropriate to see a health care professional for evaluation since we cannot see or examine you over the internet. This should be easily and inexpensively treated once you are diagnosed. Don't delay.

See a doctor ASAP: This could be orbital cellulitis. You already feel pressure, so it is very important you need to see a doctor get a full check up asap.
