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 I 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. What could this be?
