Is there such thing as a mild migraine?

I have a killer headache, my face hurts, my jaw on one side just below the temple is killing me and there's a hot poker throb behind my eye on the same side.  

It's not as intense as a migraine, but I'm also sound and light sensitive and feel lightheaded and my eyes won't focus properly, just like when I do have a migraine.

Also, my nose is stuff and feels like there is pressure.  

Sinus headache maybe?

This sounds like tension. Take a hot shower, pain relieve and try a nap.

I've already taken a bath, nap isn't possible, but I woke up this morning early from the pain, it developed while I slept so if I could nap, it wouldn't really work :(

I am going to the store soon (waiting on laundry) to get pain releivers.

Some migraines aren't even painful. They can cause blindness temporarily but no pain! They all are a bit different.

Is the pain a "hot pain". It may be an infection? Does an ice pack provide some relief? Can you eat something? That may help the light headedness. Caffeine? I want a nap so bad!

 didn't know that.  I'm glad I don't have those kind of migraines.  I hate pain, but I can still function, although sometimes just barely.  Blind, I couldn't.

It is hot pain, I'm just getting over another sinus infection (my sinuses hate me).  And it's allergy time for me. My whole face feels hot and miserable I just want to plunge it in icewater.  I ate breakfast but feel so queasy I didn't finish my coffee.  I think I'm going to pick up some sinus headache pills.

It sounds like a sinus headache.  Buy Tylenol sinus headache medicine, it will knock it right out.

Hmmm..: does your local pharmacy have a walk in clinic? I would try to be seen. Sounds miserable! Feel better

no pharmacies don't have clinics here ;)

I'm just going to grab the sinus pills and hope for the best
