I have pain behind my right eye when I close it. I especially notice it when I lay down to sleep. The pain "travels" from behind my eye, aound my skull, to my neck. Most nights, a headache awakens me and I have to take an aspirin. If I don't, then the pain is almost debilitating by morning. I first noticed it when I attempted to sleep in the car. I laid my head in every direction while in the car, but there was no relief. I finally just rested my head on the car headrest with my eyes open. No pain. When I closed my eye, there was pain. If I had to rate the pain, I would rate it a 6 initially, with it getting worse through the night.
