Headaches and fatigue after using computer or phone

I have been having some very debiliating symptoms for the past few months. Very often when I am using a computer I develop headaches which quickly lead to fatigue and general weakening of the brain functions ( loss of proper concentration and thinking ). There are better periods and worse periods. Sometimes symptoms disappear for few days, but then again reappear. It usually correlates with conjunctivitis. The same thing happens whenever I use a phone, but it starts much quicker, after one minute or less. Of course the longer I use the phone the worse becomes the headache.

I know that I have to go to a doctor and I will go, but the queue is my country is 3 months long, so it would be good to at least narrow the possible diagnosises.

Thank you for any help.
