Maybe: It sounds like a pulled muscle in your neck. I don't see how the vein over your eyebrow is related to it. Perhaps you have become more aware and focused because of your pain and you notice it now. If the veins in your neck are being compressed it could cause the veins in your forehead to enlarge. Good health ...Read more
