Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them. I began getting severe and chronic migraines about 4 or 5 years ago, always focused around my left eye, and then sort of spread out from there. For the past 2 years or so, been getting botox treatments (which help tremendously) and am also on several preventative meds. Still get migraines maybe only 1-2 a month, compared to daily before these treatments. Also lots of lifestyle modifications.

Recently though, I noticed I've been getting more migraines than usual, and most are centered on the right eye! What's with that?? I do have a lot of stress going on, and sleep has been a major issue lately, so I assume those factors account for the increase in migraines, but not sure why it has switched sides. Anyone have that happen to them? Any "meaning" behind it that you could figure out?

Not really concerned much at this point, because of all the stress etc, going on. Not sure if I need to mention this to my headache doc or not. Any thoughts?
