hi all i been for a couple of years suffering from eye problems but there more or less sorted them selves but my vision is very good and i dont need glasses, but for a year or so, i get up in the morning and i,m fine but as there day gets on when driving a round when its sunny, i feel like a lot tension and a thumbing forehead and i feel sick and its always on sunny days for a good year and half its been happening, its also while and on days where its raining dull with all people driving with head lights on bright. i rarley go out driving on nights. but as sun goes and sat at home later it seems to subside i start to feel ok . but it happens all the time but for 2 years i thought it was to do with my eye problems i had but as they sorted them selves out its not that and its every day. never been a big headache sufferer. but i do suffer from a bit of axeity when i,m not right which does not help. my gp thinks it all in my head as i suffer a bit from axiety any ideas ???? thanks

The American Headache Society has some very good information about telling the difference between migraines and tension-type headaches. Rather than paraphrasing it I'll just direct you to the relevant site:

If you have any further questions or need any clarification please let us know.

It definitely sounds like you have some type of sensitivity to light?
