    Default eye doctor and headaches

    I have an appointment to go give the eye doctor alot of my hard earned money tomorrow. This is just the 1st thing on my list to get down to the reason why I have headaches every single day. This would probably be the cheapest route b/c anyone else is going to want MRI's, CAT Scans, etc and that will not be cheap by any means.

    If it is pain coming from the eye, make sure you get all your questions answered asap. And a second opinion if need be. Good luck to you.

    My hubby had eye surgery this summer, due to one of his eyes filling up with blood. He ended up seeing 3 eye specialists, and now has a prosthetic in it. And the insurance company short changed us on his last bill. We are appealing the amount of the check reimbursement as we had to pay upfront as the doctor was out of network.

    Do you have any type of insurance? Getting headaches every day could be bigger problem than an eye doctor can handle. Do you have a regular GP?

    When I start getting a headache at pretty much the same time of day every day, it means I need new glasses! Lots of things can cause headaches though. Good Luck!

    Good luck with your appointment. That's a good idea to get an eye exam first. I had really bad headaches- almost like migraines too. Turned out it was because my astigmatism got a lot worse. Once I got the correct contact and glasses prescription, I had no more of those headaches. I hope your headaches are from something as simple as that

    It could be coming from something you're eating or drinking also. I was also getting headaches (migrane type) alot lately 2 to 3 days with a break of maybe a day or two in the middle. I switched over to a clean foods diet and have only had a minor headache in the last 2 weeks.

    Thank you all. Good and Not as good news from the eye doc. My vision is great and my eyes are healthy. Sooo that means we go to plan B. I am calling my doc this morn to set up an appointment to get the ball rolling to figure out what is going on.

    I have been trying to keep track of what I am doing and what I eat when the headaches start but so far I havent seen anything repetitive.

    Well I went to my GP yesterday and she seems to think it is cluster migraines. She gave me some medicine to try for 10 days and then I go back. If this medicine helps then great but if is not she is going to set me up with a neurologist. I am thinking I may want to go anyway b/c after reading up on the medicine ( I have a bad habit of doing that, which sometimes makes me paranoid), I am not sure I want to be so dependant on it. Maybe that is my problem, I worry too much LOL
