I'm sorry to hear that you are so uncomfortable! I definitely think these symptoms are worth a trip to see your primary care doctor
, at your earliest convenience. They can perform a complete physical examination and help figure out what might be going on.
The painful swollen areas in the back of your head might be two things. First, these could be swollen occipital lymph nodes, or glands. The occipital lymph nodes can be swollen for a number of reasons, usually due to an infection in the scalp, throat, or neck region. However, rarely, persistent swelling of these glands can be a serious problem, such as a lymphoma
. Second, these swollen tender areas could be a bad case of muscle spasm or tension in your neck. Obviously, its important to distinguish between these two causes, as the treatments and work up are very different! It should however be easy for your doctor to figure this out on examination.
I cannot immediately think of any common cause linking the sensation of something in your eye to swelling in the back of your neck. Some rare rheumatologic conditions might cause "dry eyes" which could feel like something is stuck in your eye together with pain or soreness in various muscles groups in the body, and this is something your doctor can consider.
