I have this reoccurring scleral cyst (the white part) on my left eye. This has been going on for about 2 months now. It usually goes away without me doing anything. This time it's different. It is still rather small but I have this sudden sharp pain behind it and on my temple whenever I do anything that gets the blood flowing. Rather it being running or other various activities...
When the migraine hits it's sudden and hard (like a blunt object to the temple / eye socket). It almost makes me fall to my knees. Just in pain, not faint.
The pain has lasted all day today and I have taken several types of headache meds. It has eased a bit but it won't go away.
Now to my question. Do I need to go to the ER or consult an optometrist for this matter and is it related to the cyst?
I have included a photo. I took it the best I could.
(Sorry for such a long post I'm new here. Just trying to give some background. Thanks.)
Okay, thank you for the insight. Any idea why these headaches are so painful and concentrated in that eye / temple area? This has been happening almost every day for the past week. Just touching that side of my head causes it to feel worse.
