In this situation  you are getting way ahead of yourself coming up with diagnoses before you have even be seen by an ophthalmologist.  There are many possible causes of your pain and really too many to get into at this stage.  You really need to be seen in person by an ophthalmologist to first rule out an obvious eye problem like uveitis, scleritis or glaucoma.  It could even be a foreign body or eyelashes poking the eye.  There are also several orbital inflammatory problems that are possible and even sinusitis since the orbit is surrounded by 4 sinuses.
