Thumbs down pain referring to the eye

Does anyone get neck pain that refers behind the eye. I've been suffering for 6 days Intermittently. Its really annoying. When I touch certain spots in my neck it shoots straight unto my eye. One side is almost continuous the other side is random here and there (that side of the beck isn't as bad) I also get dry eyes.
I've been to the optometrist. Mri 6 months ago etc.
Just wondering if anyone experiences this. I'm newly diagnosed
thanks in advance

Bsmoothy91,

I do get headaches like that, they turn into migraines for me and my eye feels like it is huge, going to explode with lightening like jabs of pain through it. (not saying you have headaches or migraines)
Have you used ice for it? During a migraine ice is my best friend. I use it on the back of my neck, and my eye. Also there is a nerve that runs just under you eyebrow. You can gently rub it (not too hard or you will bruise it), back and forth to help it settle down. (until you get some answers)

I get pain like this that used to be a lot worse. My neurologist said it was trigeminal neuralgia. They significantly decreased once I started taking gabapentin.
