Is it possible for a migraine to manifest as bloodshot eyes, and severe eye strain and photophobia but no other symptom? No throbbing head etc?
Background: I got a bunch of food allergies. When I take anything with soy, or steric acid, etc. my eyes go bloodshot and feel really strained. I also can't look at bright light. I eventually get a bad headache, but it doesn't come until after a while. I thought for a long time that it was the strained and bloodshot eyes that triggered the migraine, not an allergic reaction triggering the migraine which triggers the red eyes.
Is it possible to have those allergies trigger a migraine but it only manifests as red eyes for a while before the throbbing? Sometimes it takes a day until the throbbing starts after I initially have the blood shot eyes
I'm taking Wellbutrin now and it's working good at getting rid of the migraines, but the strained and bloodshot eyes are still there and are causing me lots of discomfort. what can I take for red eyes if it is indeed caused by a migraine?
Thanks for reading
