It sounds exactly like the migraines I get. I have had them since I was about 7 years old. The only thing that has seemed to really help me is getting regular sleep, eating fairly well (lots of fluids, especially water!), and taking Amerge or Maxalt when I get a migraine. I think it is best to go see a doctor if you haven't already. They might have some suggestions or refer you to a neurologist.
How are you? Aside from migraine, another primary headache that we can consider is cluster headache. Cluster headaches present with excruciating pain in vicinity of eye. The pain frequently develops during sleep and may last for several hours. The attacks may occur every day for weeks then disappear for up to a year. Try to avoid smoking or drinking alcoholic beverages. If it persists despite the medication given by your doctor, you may benefit from further evaluation. Take care and regards.
