Unhappy Pain in back of head when sleeping & waking up with headache?

For the past 5 days now when I go to sleep, either immediately or after sleeping for a little while I will wake up with a pain in the lower back part of my head (lowest part of the occipital region, directly to the right of my spine). It feels tight and is more of a dull pain, which is really uncomfortable and makes me toss and turn at night. Then, when I wake up in the morning I will have a headache where the pain is in one of my eyes and sometimes across my forehead. I have the same pillows that I have been using for years now and nothing is different about the way I am sleeping. Any ideas about what may be causing this/what this is/how to make it stop?
