Was the examination done by an Ophthalmologist. Your Girlfriend might be suffering from acute episodes of Glaucoma or conjunctivitis. I would advice you to get it examined by an Ophthalmologist if you haven't. Is there any history of injury to the eye?

Thanks for your fast answer!

No history of injury to the eyes and she was not examined by an ophtalmologist. She's going to see a doctor this afternoon, a general practitioner, here in Singapore. It's in a medical center so hopefully there'll be an ophtalmologist around.

The headache did not lessen but the yellowishness in the eye did since this morning.

Thank you for your help.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There is mild congestion of her conjunctiva of her eyes which is causing the redness. Does she get tear secretion from the same eye as well. If there is itching and discharge it could be due to conjunctivitis or glaucoma especially if decreased vision in that eye which can be dangerous and needs Ophthalmologist consult If she is having only on the side of the headache it may be part of SUNA headache. You need to get her examined by a Neurologist who will be able to evaluate why she is getting these headaches and also give proper treatment after taking possible scan as well.

my daughter is only 24 years old, however she has experienced flashing spots and zig zag lines in the vision of her left eye. This is new to her but I have had these same symptoms for years off and on and I was told they were called Eye Migraines . I am concerned because the other day after the spots occurred she experienced cloudy vision in her left eye and lost feeling in her left fingers. This was temporary and it did not last long. I was wondering if these were still symptoms of an Eye Migraine or if there is possibly something else going on. My daughter does get severe headaches at least twice a week and has for years. I believe this runs in my husbands side of the family with the severe headaches.

I have diabetic Retropathy (sp?) Today I had a 1/2 circle -backwards C, in my right eye. I had a very minor headache. Headaches are very unusual for me. The circle was vibrating and neon. It slowly expanded until it went out of my vision. I have a dr. apt with my GP on the 30th. I read that this is an eye migrane. Do I need to worry or will my apt be soon enough to speak to my Dr.

I get headaches at the brow of my nose between my eyes. They say they are tension headaches. They normally go away. But its still tender when I press on that area. Mostly on the right side going towards the corner of the eye. Is this normal? or should I go see a doctor?

Starting a few months ago I started having severe breast pain a week before my cycle, followed by a severely painful cycle. A few days later the pain gets better but never fully goes away. They have also grown almost 2 cups sizes. I have been to a GYN and my PCP and all both can say is cut caffeine and take NSAIDs (which do not help.) I have endometriosis so the cycle pain is more common. But the breasts are not. Is caffiene really that bad for you? I am very tired if hurting. I would also like to mention I have had multiple migraines and eczema out breaks more frequently than normal.

Hello, I am having trouble with...I get headaches from the seasonal allergies, the one thing I ve found that prevents those headaches from going into migraines is Excedrin migraine. I have Mitral valve prolapse & cannot take decongestants. I have taken the Excedrin for years with great success. Last summer I began taking magnesium and I starting breaking out in hives. I stopped the mag. & started it again, every now & then I still break out. I stopped the mag. again. I m concerned about the Excedrin but feel I have no other option. Can I all of a sudden have an allergy to Excedrin after all these years? Also, how long does it take for the magnesium to be out of my body?

hi im 29 after suffering a miscarriage i started to experience what felt like severe fatigue tested bloods slightly under the norm range for Vitamin b12 def so now have the 12 weekely jabs. i then had what doc said was a migraine aura could not see out of left eye this lasted 6 hours and returned back to norm however still had partial vision seemed blurred spoke to doc who recommended a sight test which came back norm. then after the aura i have been having on and off episodes where my i feel light headed, left side of body feels numb and heavy and and also the side of my mouth which at times i have slurred speech, i have had MRI which revealed nothing on migraine/tumours or lesions just a Tornwald cyst in my nose which they say has nothing to do with symptoms. both my mother and gran have MS and this was ruled out from MRI. consulant can not find anything wrong so is suggesting i have Hemiplegic Migraine and has prescribed Topiramate my doc does not think that migraine is the cause but has gave me tablets anyway. this is all happening once a week roughly i have bad days and good days no headache is ever present. doc says i have GAD now but i suppose anyone would if they didn t know what was wrong with them and feeling unable to function normally for a year do you think i should see a ENT cons? could it be caused from the cyst i do suffer with sinus problems and currently have Eustachian ear dysfuntion which drives me crazy!
