Eye movement & pain: A most difficult question!. Many causes can be found. Only a thorough exam can bring light to this very subjective symptom. Most likely eye muscle related: thyroid myopathy, orbital myositis, residual sign of trauma that may involve the trochlea where the superior oblique "hooks", superior oblique myokymia of unknown cause and plain eye tiredness (asthenopia), more history is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several causes: Eyelid twitching is very common, and often occurs from stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, and overuse of stimulants such as caffeine or decongestants. Local eye irritation can also add to this, such as dry eye, allergy, and blepharitis (eyelid infection, inflammation). Eyestrain and excessive reading can contribute. Try reducing the stress/stimulant factors, and get an eye exam for the other causes. ...Read more
Can happen: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Spasms: The symptoms that you're describing are benign. Twitches and spasms and even tingling are normal and can occur on the face and neck. Oftentimes they are due to stress or can be induced by exercise. I would recommend some massaging and warm compresses, Otherwise it's not anything dangerous. ...Read more
Hit head above left temple on corner of car door 3 days ago. Small bump barely noticeable bruise&little scratch. Slight headache yesterday&today. Dr??
Ice it!: Accidents happen. The best, easiest & cheapest thing you can do is ice the area as soon as possible. Earlier is better, more often is better than less often. Acetaminophen, if you're otherwise healthy, can be used for pain relief (I tend to avoid ibuprofen). As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more
What can cause a headache across forehead, behind eyes, and base of head, blood shot eyes and sensitive right eye.
Eyestrain or ???: Headache is associated with many etiologies, but having your vision checked, and corrected with bifocal glasses, can remove eyestrain from the long differential diagnosis list. An ophthalmologist or optometrist can screen the eyes for vision-threatening disease, and opticians can fulfill the prescription. If that does not work, make an appointment with a neurologist who specializes in headache. ...Read more
