Okay I am proud to say that after suffering from migraines every day for the past two weeks...I am on my second day of being migraine free.......i didn't even have to take my imitrex today!!!
BUT halfway through the day...i got REALLY RED itchy bloodshot watery eyes.  They burn so bad when i look at light.  They've been irritated for thepast two weeks..(during the time I was getting migraines every day)
I've tried using those like 10 dollar allergy eye drops..and they're not helping.  (Since sinuses have been an issue too).  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Can these be related in any way to my migraines since they seem to correlate with the times that my migraines got really bad??
I'm making a seven hour drive to visit my parents tomorrow and need to find something to relieve least temporarily!??!!  I can't go to teh doc yet..i'm actually in themiddle of parent teacher conferences right now too. (waiting for thenext parent).
PLEASE leave me suggestions if you have any.
Thank you,

Were you taking any triptans while you had the headache?  I did run into this a few years ago.  Neuro told me it has to do with the vascular effects of the drugs- which do need a bit of time to fully be out of your system.
