Hi, my migraines are behind my eye. I get the wiggly line thing in my vision that progress to almost blindness if I don't take 3-4 Advil at the first sign..if I wait 5-10 min. after first symptom starts coming on, I'm in trouble. I live with this daily. However, the tenderness of the eye does not happen to me.
Since they start at the same time everyday I wonder if it is reaction to something you are eating, drinking or around. I have read that caffine can trigger migraines. Perhaps you should take note of what you are eating and drinking daily that could be causing this.
You may want to reqest your doctor do a CT scan to eliminate other causes..
How are you? It is good that the blood tests and eye exam were fine. If there was no previous history of trauma to your head or neck, this could indeed be due to primary headache such as migraine headaches. Some migraine headaches are associated with eye or ear symptoms also. Ice pack, prescription medication and avoidance of possible triggers may help. If it persists, you may need to have this evaluated further for proper management. also agree that you may want to have a CT scan done to rule out any underlying condition. Take care and do keep us posted.
