    seems like a neurological issue. How is your vision ?

      Why do you say that?

      My vision is ok apart from being very short sighted -9.

      It does go after taking paracetomol.

      The CT scan said it couldnt find any reason for the headaches.  

      Would a CT show anything?

      I said that cause headache with eye pain would indicated the optical/ retinal nerve issue. 

      Taking paracetamol makes it go away, so it maybe this. 

      You may want to get it chcked with an opthalmologist after he dilates your eyes and checks the back of your eye. 

      CT did not show anything for headaches, unless there is vascular or tumor issues going on in the head, which is not cause your CT was fine.

      Hello Rocky

      I have been to the hospital when it was happening over Christmas and have had my eye dilated and the opthamologist complemented me on the good health of my optic nerve cup considering how short sighted i am.  

      I have also has the mri scan of the back of my eyes and this was fine too as well as my field vision test.

      Any ideas?
