I have had a terrible migraine for the past day

Patient: I have had a terrible migraine for the past day and half. But its also affecting my eyes. They have been really aching to just look around and even sore when I close them. now their not only aching but also have a burning like sensation and sensitivity to bright light. Ive taken panadol and have slept. But still feel very fatigued and at times nauseous. Just really wanted to know if it is anything serious or just a bad migraine.

 

 

Symptoms: Migraine, sore eyes, nausea, sore throat.
