Daily Headache

I have been experiencing a daily, mild-to-moderate bifrontal headache for the past 4 months. The headache often feels like a dull pressure inside my head, or rarely like a tight band around my head. It gets worse when I sit down, bend over, touch the pillow with my head when laying down in bed, or jump.
Sometimes during the day, my eyes get dry and tired, even if I haven't been using screens. My headache tends to disappear at these times. After some time, my eyes go back to normal, and then the headache reappears. When I move my shoulders, they feel stiff. Watching screens seems to trigger or worsen the headache.
I had a brain MRI, neurological exam, routine EEG, eye exam, blood tests, and ECG, and all tests were normal. I am still not sure what is causing my headaches.
I will tell how it all started:
One night, while I was watching my phone, I took a break and noticed that the door was moving. I didn't think much of it, but in the next few days, more symptoms appeared. While I was watching my computer, my eyes would not want to focus. This continued until I started getting a daily headache.
I want to mention that before these symptoms appeared, I was sleeping 3-4 hours per night and using screens pretty much all day.

Since you've had imaging done, and serious physical causes have been ruled out, what about mold in your home? Allergies?

Have you had your eyes checked?

It might be something as simple as needing to change your pillow - maybe it's old, or you need a different style.

You can get a mold kit at a hardware store for pretty cheap and start there.
