Pain/ache behind eyes.
Hello.

I’m a 17 year old male.

I’ve been experiencing a dull ache around and behind my eyes for about 5 months now. Sometimes I will get strange sensations on the top of my head and it feels like there’s pressure on my head and behind my eyes.

The top of my nose can also feel like it has pressure at times.
Under my eyes and around my nose feels tender.

The ache around my eyes isn’t necessarily painful, it’s just annoying because it’s there a lot of the time.

I’m getting really worried now that this could possibly be a brain tumor. I’ve been reading around some websites and I have some of the symptoms, but I think I could just be getting paranoid. I get worried very easily.

I only tend to get this ache around/the back of my eyes when I feel tired.

Also, if I tilt my head back I feel a bit dizzy.

I suppose that this could be a problem with my eyes or neck? Or even possibly sinuses? I do spend a lot of time at my computer, sometimes it can be as much as 10 hours a day. My eyes do often feel 'tired'.

Any information or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
