Tunnel vision...
I am suffering from chronic migraine. My migraines first started about 10 years ago. I don't think I have an aura migraine because I have never really felt a migraine attack coming but I can't be entirely sure. I am 18 years now and recently (for about 6 months) I have occasionally suffered from tunnel vision when I suddenly get up and sometimes at completely random moments. I also feel a little dizzy and fatigued at those moments but then after a few seconds it passes by. My eyes also feel really irritated and many-a-times I get a white/translucent eye discharge many times in a day. Can you suggest any causes, remedies, precautions as to what is happening with me or is it simply normal.

You are suffering from syncope: dizziness or even fainting with tunnel or tunnel like vision. It could be related to your blood pressure and /or bp meds. I don't think it's related to the migraines, unless it's one of your migraine meds causing it.
