I went to the eye doctor recently.
When I last saw my primary care doctor, she asked if I was going to the eye doctor yearly.
I admitted that while I know I’m supposed to, I haven’t, for several reasons.
First, I think I get a bit of appointment fatigue, and the thought of having one more appointment that seems like it isn’t absolutely necessary is a good way to talk myself into not doing it.
Second, my eye doctor is where my parents live. He saw me when I was born, in the hospital as a two-pound premie, and I have been going to him ever since. But when I am delinquent on appointments, his office sends me nasty grams. Another great way to get me to avoid making an appointment. Maybe these notes should have the opposite effect, but there you go.
Third, every time I go to the eye doctor, he is very judgmental about the medications that I am on. This is very frustrating. My mom thinks he is jus...
Every day morning I wake up with headache around my eyes and neck with fatigue feelings. I wake up several times during my sleep at night and average time of sleeping 5 to 6 hours maximum. saeed.
Waking with a headache or Migraine most often indicates a problem with sleep, and you mentioned interrupted sleep. There are several sleep issues that can bring about Migraines or headaches that occur when you wake:
too much sleep,
too little sleep,
sleeping in a room with light, which disrupts the body's production of melatonin. and
poor quality sleep.
It's strongly suggested that people with Migraines and headaches go to bed and get up at the same time each day, including weekends and holidays. Take a look at this video on the topic, Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep .

Have you ever heard of migraines with temporary blindness occurring in both eyes followed by headache? And if so, would this be considered migraine with aura or a retinal migraine? Chris.
Binocular (in both eyes) blindness in Migraine is rare. It occurs more frequently in women than men and mostly in people who have a history of Migraine with aura. Whether it would be classified as Migraine with aura or retinal Migraine isn't clearly defined since it's so rare.
If you haven't seen your doctor about this, please do. Since binocular blindness with a Migraine is so rare, other possible causes such as TIA and retinal detachment should be ruled out.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
