Headaches behind the eye
I have been getting really bad headaches(Migraines) for a few years. They usually start behind my left eye and progress from there. When I had my yearly eye appointment the doctor took a picture of my eye and noticed a "brown spot" on the white of my eye. I have a follow up next month with my eye doctor. Could this be the cause of my bad headaches? My primary doctor doesn't want to prescibe me any meds until I go back to the eye doctor.

Dear SweetMainer,

It is not likely, although possible that the spot is causing your headaches.  I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD so you can find out the cause of your headaches and have the spot examined.
