painful headaches and eyes hurt
My daughter is 22 and doesn't have healthy insurance.  This past week she has had bad headaches and her eyes also hurt.  She has a bad headache right now.  I was wondering if they are symptoms of a migraine or something more serious.  Any information would be appreciated, until she gets to a dr.

Migraines are usually known by being on side of the head or the other.

Since she does not have insurance, she could see an eye doctor as a first exam as that can rule a lot of things in or out, including some tumors.

Thank you for your question. Generally, one sided throbbing (or sharp) headache (or discomfort) & orbital pain (eye pain) with numbness symptoms could be suggestive of migraine. Factors that may induce your migraine attack may be excessive pills, stress or depression, bright lights, loud noise and traveling. The mainstay of the migraine treatment is always to identify the triggering factors and to avoid them. On the other hand, few patients experience similar pain with sinusitis (sinus with infected mucus), nerve impingement and any neurological disorder.  I would suggest careful record of events that have proceeded with the attack and avoid those factors. In addition, try to rest in a dark & quiet room, meditate, have a balanced diet, avoid taking unnecessary drugs and consult a neurologist. Hope this helps.
