Pain behind eyes upon waking every morning

Has anyone experienced pain behind their eyes upon waking in the morning? I've been having this nearly everyday for the past week. I did start taking Nortriptyline about 2 weeks ago, so it may be the medication, but I remember having this eye pain before I was even on any meds. Starting to get concerned about this symptom. When I move my eyes to look far right or left, the pain is pretty bad. On a scale o 1-10 I'd say it's about a 6-7. Makes me think it has something do with the pressure in my head...I've been checked out with MRI's and CT's, but never had a spinal tap. Is that something I should consider?

  1. Any time there is a new or worsening symptom, it should be checked out. Migraineurs get accustomed to all kinds of strange symptoms. It is easy to blow off a new symptom as just a "migraine fluke" when it may or may not be related to migraine at all.

    We can't recommend specific testing, though. That is best determined by your own doctor.

    Please write back and let us know what you find out.


    1. Buy Hydrocodone online and use it safely
      Hydrocodone pills are a necessary remedy for those suffering from severe pain. It is a hard medication that you must know how to use, however. First off, do not take it to treat pain as it comes. It has to be prescribed by your doctor and taken at the proper amounts.
      Many people use opioids with food to reduce nausea, which is a common side effect. With Hydrocodone, this doesn’t work. If you split the pill, you receive all the active substance reserved for an extended release and risk having serious side effects.
      Order Hydrocodone online legally and forget about the pain
      Suffering from pain? We have loads of Hydrocodone pills for sale to help you with that problem. Hydrocodone Bitartrate is an opioid analgesic, like Oxycodone or Methadone. The way it affects your body is it changes how it responds to pain.
      The non-opioid element of these pills can reduce fever as well. However, this is not a regular pill that you can take whenever you feel pain. It has an extended release, which means Hydrocodone we have for sale will work longer than traditional opioids. That is why it is usually prescribed to patients with severe chronic pain.

  2. I have still yet to report this to my doctor, but plan on doing so very soon. I'm still experiencing the eye pain more frequently than I did in the past when I wasn't taking any medication. I'll keep you posted.

    1. Awest,
      You may want to ask for a referral to an neuro-opthamologist. This type of doctor is a neuro as well as an opthamologist and could have better insight to this problem if it doesn't get any better or worse. Just wanted to let you know that there are doctors out there who have this designation.

      1. Thanks Katie. I have spoken to my Doc about this and she is referring me.
