Basically I'm 19 and I've been getting migraines constant for 3 years now the pain is mostly around my right eye. They mostly occur when I wake up in the mornings and last for about 15-40 minutes and leave painful sensations when they are gone. I try paracetamol but this makes me nauseous throughout the day so i tend not to take them and just relax in the dark with a cold cloth on my face. Lately I've been getting headaches that make me dizzy and disorientated also I had tingly arms and face. I just don't have time to visit my doctor either I did have an eye test and they told me my eyesight is fine so I don't know what is causing the headaches could it be stress or anxiety?

Has your doctor sent you to a Neurologist? Having dizziness and tingling is concerning. That is not generally part of typical migraine (common; classic).

Whenever I've been they just proscribe me headache and pain relief tablets but it was only the past few days when the dizzy headaches started mostly at night and last night is when the tingles started I just wanted a second opinion before I visited the doctor.

Welcome to the forum.

The tingling is a concern. Could just be a pinched nerve in your neck, but you never know.

I suggest you find a good neurologist at a major hospital, so they know what they are doing, and make an appointment. TELL them your symptoms when making the appointment.

If the dizziness increases or the tingling gets worse or numbness occurs. Immediately go to an ER! Do NOT fool around with these symptoms.

Better safe than sorry.
