Eyestrain and neck/shoulder pain
Can prolonged eyestrain cause knots to form in the neck/traps/shoulder? Or is it the other way around?
I think I have really bad eye strain, my eyes are VERY heavy and droopy and I also have knots on my upper trapezius. They seem to be interconnected somehow. I get really bad headaches (tension headaches) when I sit at the computer, even with good posture.
If I move my trapezius muscles, my eyes will immediately start squinting. It must be somehow connected neurologically
Is it possible for eyestrain to make the neck and upperback muscles contract and work harder? My neck sometimes gets really stiff even with good posture and I can't figure out why.
