Dull ache pain behind eyes..Sometimes near temples...Possible causes?

Decongestant : Most pain in or around an eye is from sinusitis or headache. Pain reliever and decongestant should relieve it. If not, or if it is getting worse, go see your doctor.

Brain fog for the past couple of weeks coupled with dull ache behind both eyes. Stiff neck also. My Lexapro (escitalopram) dose loosing effectiveness?  A migraine?

Not a migraine: Could be a cervicogenic headache which is from neck muscles in spasm. You could try a massage of the area or a hot shower playing the spray over the neck area while stretching out the neck muscles. Moist heat or ice packs over the sore neck areas could actually make your head feel better. The brain fog could be a neurological issue. Good luck. ...Read more

My dad is 53 and has found skin cancer already. Now his bones ache and he gets headaches behind the eyes, and his back hurts. Is something wrong?

Can be serious: The first question would be to find out if your dad has melanoma. If so, then these symptoms absolutely need to be evaluated asap by a doctor. Melanoma can spread to just about any organ including the brain, bones, liver, and lungs. ...Read more

My eyes get sore if I do not push on them to release the pressure behind them it makes a squeaking noise when I do ?

My eyes get sore if I do not push on them to release the pressure behind them it makes a squeaking noise when I do ?

Interesting : Well this is a first for me, and therefore is have to guess a bit. You may feel better just by the forced closure and rubbing action delivered to your eye through the eyelids. The pressure may stimulate some tearing, real lease of oil and mucous secretions thereby making your eyes more comfortable. I advise doing something different. Use warm compress to closed eyes, artificial tears. Better 4 eye ...Read more

Tension vs Migraine: I need more data but this might be a migraine. I would be suspect of a migraine if you have family history of migraines, headaches are cyclical, they last a 6-48 hours, you have nausea and vomiting. They get better if you are in a dark room without a lot of noise. Or this is just a simple tension headache which occurs maybe 1-2 times a month? Try Tylenol (acetaminophen) if not better or cyclical see doctor. ...Read more
