Sharp pain in eye and jaw, what it could be ?


About 3 weeks ago I had blurred vision for about 3 days straight, I don't use glasses only when I spend too much time on the computer, but that wasn't the case at the moment.

Today while I was in the shower, I got a sharp pain in my right eye brow, it went all the way to my jaw, and I felt my jaw tense up ( only on my right side )

I do get migranes, and I've been getting them since I was about 9 years old, but this has never happend to me..

Any ideas on what it could be?? your help will be much apreciated.

thank you, Elizabeth.
