Thanks for using the forum. I am happy to address your questions, and my answer will be based on the information you provided here. Please make sure you recognize that this forum is for educational purposes only, and it does not substitute for a formal office visit with a doctor.
Without the ability to examine and obtain a history, I can not tell you what the exact cause of the symptoms is. However I will try to provide you with some useful information.
The eye sensation you are describing is most likely an aura. An aura is a quick (or transient) neurological change. It can be a change in the visual, sensory, language, or even motor (muscle) system. Auras most commonly occur in people with migraines, but it can also occur in other conditions such as epilepsy. The auras occur in about 15-20% of patients with migraines but may not occur with each migraine. As you are probably aware, migraines are typically a unilateral, throbbin head pain that is severe that may be associated with nausea, vomiting, light/sound sensitivity, and can be worsened with activity. After puberty, migraines most commonly occur in females.
I would suggest that you follow up with your primary care physician to discuss your symptoms. The constellation is most likely a migraine with aura, but you should be evaluated to ensure no other processes are occurring. If it is a migraine, there are treatment options. These include an abortive medication (for the start of a headache), which may be type of medication in the triptan family, and/or preventative medication (if you are having frequent migraines) that may include a member of one of the following classes of medications: beta blocker, calcium channel blocker, antiepileptic, or an antidepressant. Supplements, such as magnesium, may be recommended to you. It is important that you do not overuse medications such as tylenol, advil, etc, as overuse of these medications (e.g,. more than 2 days per week) can cause a medication overuse headache.
As you can probably tell there are a lot of options for migraines. Again, I recommend that you follow up with your physician to ensure a correct diagnosis and also find the right treatment option for you.
Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
