Your headache is causing the pain around your eyes. Headaches are caused by tight neck muscles. The muscles go to the top of your head where they connect to muscles going around your head. When the neck muscles get tight they pull the head muscles into pain and that’s your headache. The nerves for your eyes go to the back of your head passing next to the neck muscles. When the neck muscles are tight they can press onto the nerves to your eyes to give you pains on and around your eyes. To get rid of the pains you have to free up your neck muscles to so they don’t pull on the head muscles and here’s how to free them up:
Neck Release:
Place your hands behind your head touching your fingers. Press into the back of your neck with them and hold the pressure on them. After 45 seconds slowly lower your head until your neck is fully extended. Release the pressure but hold your head there for another 30 seconds.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
