Hello doctor,

I am having burning eye pain with a cluster headache which usually increases in the afternoon and keep increasing until bedtime. Tightly tying a cloth around my head and eyes covered gives relief.

There is a severe allergy to light. Darkness is preferred during the attack. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are most likely suffering from a migraine headache. Eye pain is part of the migraine complex. If you have these episodes you are advised a detailed consultation online or offline with a neurologist.

Some initial steps that may help are:

  1. Follow a strict schedule for eating, sleeping, and taking rest.
  2. Avoid known stressors.
  3. Practice some meditation/ yoga/ sleep mediation for relieving stress.
  4. As soon as the pain starts, try and take rest in a place that is sound and smell neutral.
  5. I suggest taking tablet Paracetamol 650 mg and Domperidone 10 mg. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
