Hello.

The sharp pains that you have described can possibly be due to optic nerve irritation. Some migraine headaches do involve such pains, are usually relieved with migraine medication. You need to get your eye functions checked by an ophthalmologist.

The cervical epidural injections do not seem to produce this kind of pain as a side effect.

Does the pain increase on moving the eyes ? Do you have any vision problems ?

Regards
