Eye hurts when I move it

For the past few days my left eye hurts when i move it left to right. I saw a neurologist today for headaches and a funny sensation around my left temple and around my left eye. I saw him about it last year but they couldn't find the cause and don't think its anything serious. Probably an aggravated nerve causing the feeling.
Neway, do you think the two could be related?
My eye is paining now as i write when i move it, i forgot to mention it to the doc. I have seen an eye doctor in feb of 2004 as i was having an allergy problem with my left eye but my eye checked out okay. Could this be eye strain? Or should I be concerned?
Especially when i move it over to the far left, it hurts, not that much, if i didn't move it their it wouldn't. But its really their, when i move my eyes to the right, its fine, all smooth, once i move them over to the left it feels different, almost a little slower, but probably not. It just aches.

Re: Eye hurts when I move it

It could just be a general muscle ache around the eye or an ache-y muscle that moves the eye.

Optic neuritis can cause eye pain when the eye is moved, but you usually have a decrease in vision when that happens. But you can also get retrobulbar optic neuritis which can cause pain and may not affect vision very much at first.

You may want to get checked again to make sure everything is ok.
