Thanks for your reply. I don't usually suffer the headaches, but lately they seem to come after the eye episodes. I don't know whether it's actually a migraine headache or a stress headache as i get pressure around the head, especially at the sides. As i suffer with both stress and anxiety, its hard to pinpoint which, although i understand that the migraine headache is excruciatingly painful. My hubby's dad get's migraine badly and is sick with it. He ends up going to bed, bless him. Me, i get the eye troubles and don't like light, so i end up lying down myself. Sometimes, i too feel sick. I went to the opticians last night, as i said i would and she said it sounds like i'm suffering from migraines from all the stress and that's what is causing my eyes to play up. She gave both eyes a good check, yet again - i did go to the opticians in March this year and Dec last year hehe. My optician is great, she always says if you have any troubles always pop down, it doesn't take long for a check and it's always worth it. I totally agree with that plus it calms my nerves after the check to know that they are ok. I suffer with floaters in the eyes aswell LOL, so always pop down the opticians if i see a new one, to make sure that it's nothing else. I know i'm mad LOL!
It's hard to live with, because you don't know when it's going to come, and like you said if your driving, i'd be so scared, especially if my 2.5 yr son was in the car with me.
At the moment i'm not taking any medication for it, but my optician said that if the headaches get any worse, it's probably best to pop down to the doc's so they can prescribe something. She also said, there's not a lot you can do about the eye problems, they are just part and parcel of the type of migraine that i have. But it may be worth looking into something, to perhaps help with the pressure in my eyes when i do have an episode. I don't like the feeling of no control, that's what scares me the most, plus i don't want to be blind.
Ah well, i've garbled enough again LOL! Thanks again for all your replies it's much appreciated.
Speak again soon
