I have been getting migraines now for two years Well,

Patient

Q: I have been getting migraines now for two years. Well, at least that's what I have been diagnosed with without assessment. I assumed I had migraines and my GP took my word for it. Recently I was told that the initial medication I had been using shouldn't have been issued as it was too strong and my migraines may in fact be headaches. I don't know what they are and can't rely on their advicE. Now after a while I have started to get a pain behind my right eye, a slight pushing pain which worsens If I look at a bright light but also is very apparent when I have a "migraine". At night, my right eye is a lot darker than the left to the extent that if I were to wave my hand in front of my eyes, my left eye will pick up on it but it's hard to pick up with my right eye . I'm just a bit worried as to what it could be. I've searched my symptoms and the results weren't nice so I need some guidance as to what it could be and what I can do. Any ideas ?
Thanks

Doctor
