    Well, as a matter of fact, such feelings are very simple and easy. From what I know, your problem is probably resulted from lack of sleep, bad use of your eyes, and perhaps from catching a cold. So you should avoid making those occasions happen, and if such feelings still occur, you must consult a doctor and take actions against your problem, such as taking exercise, getting a better diet, etc.
