Head pain with eye movement

Whenever I look down, or look to the sides, I get a pain inthe middle of my forehead.  After closing my eyes for a while, the pain subsides.  Does anyone know the cause of this?

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You could be having a squint, astigmatism or a deviation in the axis of vision, refractive errors like near or far sightedness, low or high blood pressure of a tendency for vasovagal attack. All these can cause a headache on movement of eyes. Do consult an ophthalmologist or optometrist to begin with.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
