Ashi, your headaches are exactly like mine...back of head and out the eye.
Someone suggested spine pressure to me also, but I've not checked that out.
I am a much older (OLD) person and have had this since I was young. Mostly it is stress and food triggers. Keep a journal and look at the usual suspects...chocolate, caffeine, red wine (oops too young), aged cheese, some deli meats, MSG, some preservatives...look them up.
When I was younger, they went with my cycles also, especially if I was stressed out.
I take a daily medication that helps. Talk to your doc.
What do you do when you get one? I go to a dark, quiet pace, put ice on the back of my neck, and take either a RX headache med or just over the counter migraine pill. If I can lie down like this for an hours, usually I can function again. Sometimes caffeine (like a coke) and/or sudafed helps also. If I have to "carry on" with my day or go to work, I have a really hard time.
