Hi Doc

I've been suffering from bad headaches lately. Occuring only in the late afternoon. The pain is most severe in between my eyebrows and on the side of my head (next to my eyes).

Could this be a problem with my eyes? That is causing the headaches???

Dear Cherry
This could be caused by eye strain or due to tension headaches. Have your eyes tested and if normal, let your doctor check for muscle spasms in your shoulders and neck. You may need to get physiotherapy.
