Q: What could be the cause of head pain when you bend over, cough or sneeze?

I don't know where to turn for answers  I have severe pain in my right eye and temple area when I bend over, cough or sneeze.  I also have slight bulging of my right eye.  All labs, MRI and MRA were normal.  The neurologist diagnosed migraines and wanted me to take anti-seizure medication.  I cannot believe this is a migraine because of have it every day, it never goes away.  The newest symptom was a weak feeling in my right leg last evening.  I'm afraid my doctor is missing something.  I have an appointment with an endocrinologist in a few weeks, but all thyroid labs have been normal.
