That is interesting. However, having only had headaches myself for about five and a half years now, I've had detailed vision testing, whether it's been part of a neurological exam (having a colored stick moved into my peripheral vision and identifying when I can make out the color, following a light with my eyes, examining my optic nerve by hand microscope..) or by an eye-doctor (where I've had my pupils dilated and the optic nerve more closely examined and had more detailed peripheral vision testing). Personally, no problems found. I do wear glasses however and I've tried going through periods when I wear them all the time and when I wear them not at all and when I wear them depending on the circumstance (as is more proper). It's not something I haven't heard of to have stress on the eyes of the optic nerve cause (or worsen) headaches. Is this what you think helped you? Or, perhaps more informative, has your neurologist commented on its role in your improvement?
Anyhow, thank you very much for the information! It's soooo important to consider all of these things that may affect our headaches!
I'm very happy you're feeling better! Regards,
