What is that pain behind and above my eye?

It is probably referring from a trigger point at the base of the back of your skull, suboccipitals, or the top of the shoulder, the levator scapularis. These muscles can be overworked and toxins can build up from a lack of blood flow. These irritate nerves deep within the muscles so back the brain will refer pain to other nerves associated at the same nerve level. These can be corrected with a variety of techniques and will often go away quickly but any headache could be serious. Especially if it is the first or worst. It is important to get evaluated as soon as possible. Visit a headache expert today at MVP Chiro & PT.
