I have been experiencing the aura in my left eye lately that is usually a precursor to a migraine. But it has stopped before a full on migraine develops and I usually end up with a minor headache. Sometimes it feels as though it's in both eyes and lasts up to 15 or so minutes. What should I take for this, and should I see a doctor? Kelly.
I'm not sure what you mean by a "full on Migraine" as opposed to one with a "minor headache." The symptoms of a Migraine can vary from person to person and even from one Migraine to the next. Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on this.
Nobody should be telling you online what to take. What you should take depends on many things including your medical history, other conditions you may have, and what other medications you may be taking.
Yes, you should see a doctor. Any time your symptoms change or are significantly more severe than is usual f...
Take it from me... eye allergies aren't much fun. Mine manifest in crazy ways, with symptoms in only one eye at a time, but not always the same eye, with sudden onset due to no particular trigger exposure, etc. One summer, severe eye allergy symptoms led to a corneal abrasion that I think my eye doctor still believes was due to wearing contact lenses too long. He never did buy my claim that I hadn't had my contacts in for weeks before the injury.
If you have eye allergies, you probably know what I'm talking about. Your eyes burn, pump out tears and mucus for hours on end, itch and turn red and swollen. Your eyes may also be sensitive to light and your vision blurred. And then for days after those symptoms subside, the skin around your eyes remains irritated, scaly and painful due to the eye secretions it was exposed to. Yuck!
Why does this happen? Well, in all likelihood, it's due to the same triggers that start your sneezing, sniffling, and wheezing if you have na...
I've been having Sharp Pain in my head and Eye Twitching a lot of times and the eye twitching is in my left eye and I'm having vision problems and dizziness. Could it been a brain tumor? Do I need to be checked out by my doctor? Thank you so much! -Danielle.
Yes, you need to be checked out by your doctor. Although the symptoms you describe could be a brain tumor, they could and are most likely something else, something less serious. However, the only person who can diagnose your problem is a doctor - after reviewing your medical history, discussing your symptoms, and examining you in person. Unexplained head pain should always be checked out by your doctor.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
