I don't know where you live, but here it's damp, chilly and raining -- produces lots of stiff & sore muscles and joints for me. This kind of weather also gives me headaches (barometric pressure changes). I also experiance a bit of stress when I visit a dr and get not-so-good news...like Sjogren's dry eyes!
In your position, I would increase my pred for 2-3 days to see if that'll help the headache, as well as getting some over-the-counter eye drops (GenTeal Eye Lubricant, Tears Natural II Eye Lubricant, NOT stuff for red-eye or contacts).
When I got the headaches when on 10mg pred, I increased to 13mg for a few days till life got really normal again, and that seemed to work.
Of course, check with your dr before messing with your dosages unless you have already been given permission to do that. Hope the headaches let up and you feel better soon.
