How are you? Apart from migraine, this could also be due to another primary headache, cluster headache. This type of headache presents with head pain and associated symptoms such as eye pain, watery eyes, and can persists for a few days to weeks and resolve after. If your present medication is not helping, a change of medicine may be indicated. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation especially with your history of craniopharyngoma. Take care and do keep us posted.
