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.
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 include following a strict schedule for eating, sleeping, and taking rest. Avoid known stressors. Practice some meditation/ yoga/ sleep mediation for relieving stress. As soon as the pain starts, try and take rest in a place that is sound and smell neutral. 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.
