Sort of "Locked Focus" feeling
I was on a computer when this happened. I really don't say what I was doing at the time, but what happened after was I saw my eyes move in a sort of way that had not happened before. I want to say what I saw was it "inverted", but it didn't.

Basically, what I felt right after and for about a week (until my body stopped noticing it) was my eye muscles stuck in a locked focus position, yet I was able to focus clearly at anything. I say felt because I used to zone-out very often when I don't feel like having my mind think or anything, and with the astigmatism, I would seem to have my eye muscles make it seem that my eyes were locked in that position. Whenever I switched back from zoning out to regular sight, I would be able to see and feel my eyes switch back.

Now taking that info about zoning out, my eyes feel like they're still in the locked position, yet I'm fully able to look around and change focus whenever I want. This locked position has stopped hurting as much as it did after that week, and I have forgotten how it felt since I have gotten used to it, but I am 100% positive what happened is still continuing in my eyes, since I don't feel and see my eyes switch back from zoning out when I do it, it just happens instantly unlike before. It's been 3 months.

I get not so much headaches, but a very straight headache pain (not so much beating but imagine the beating pain) throughout the veins horizontal around my eyes, and under my chin next to the lymph nodes. I have eye strain when viewing a computer and television, and it makes the headache pain worse. This pain happens 24/7, from when I wake up and when I fall to sleep. Even when the pains seem like they're gone, they aren't, because it feels like a reminiscence of the pain is still there. Always.

I have eye discomfort many times during the day, where if I look to any direction, one or both of my eyes will hurt along the sides.

I think my eyes are also becoming light sensitive. When walking outside in a sunny day, my eyes start to plainly hurt.

When I close my eyes everytime, it feels like I'm squinting or crossing my eyes, and not relaxed. Even without closing my eyes though, they don't feel relaxed.

I've seen an optometrist that only told me to wear my glasses, which I knew before exiting his office that it would do no help (I am wearing the glasses though unlike before entering the office), and I've seen my local family doctor, yet she doesn't see any pure signs of anything to put into a report to referral me to a ophthalmologist. She asks me for one week to not read, use a computer, or watch TV, then after the one week tell her if I felt any difference. It's very hard for me to take away something like this for a week, and I will most likely feel a difference with eye strain from monitors, but I will undoubtedly still feel discomfort and headache pains.

Do I need to give any more information? This is such an odd description. Sorry about that, since most of what I described was just my interpretation.
