I’ve recently started getting really bad eye pain every couple days for the last month. I worry I have migraines. I’ve heard of migraines that affect only your eyes; maybe I have these ocular migraines? What is an ophthalmoplegic migraine?
Ophthalmoplegic migraine is an old term that describes a rare condition of pain surrounding the eyeball and double vision that lasts up to a few months, caused by weakness and paralysis of the muscles surrounding the eyeball.
