    I have a headache on the right side of my head, as well as soreness in my right eye. What could be causing this?

    Hi joselyn,


    I'd love to be able to give you a firm answer, but the only person who can do that is a doctor who can review you and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. There are over 100 headache disorders that could be causing your problems.


    If your doctor isn't able to help you, it may well be time to consult a migraine and headache specialist. It's important to note that neurologists aren't necessarily migraine and headache specialists. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special? If you need help finding a migraine specialist, check our listing of Patient Recommended Migraine and Headache Specialists.
