I have been getting these since I had my youngest daughter (who is 8). It begins as both my eyes burning severely as if Im very tired, and over a few hours I get a horrendous pain across my forehead, and it then locates over my right temple area. The pain is the worst ever, and it 'moves' to the top of my head and behind my right eye. The pain gets so bad that my eye will turn red and get very watery. It also radiates to my throat
I get this about day 16 into my cycle every month, and lasts 14-72 hours. I get nauseous and throw up sometimes and I get double vision.
I had an MRI of my brain to be sure nothing else was happening, and I was eventually diagnosed with menstrual migraines. None of the migraine medications help, but Tylenol 4 does at least temporarily so I can get some sleep.
Im in such misery during these headaches, and it drives me nuts.
Does anyone else get these and know of any other treatments that have work
