Broken Blood Vessels in Eyes
lortizjr posted:
Has anyone ever heard of a migraine so intense that your blood vessels in both your eyes pop. I look like both of my eyes are bleeding. The blood vessels in my eyelids are broken too. I have suffered from migraines all my life and have never experienced anything like this.
GIpain responded:
Can't say that I have ....and I suffer from severe is your blood pressure? Have you had that my knowledge broken blood vessels in the eye is not a side effect of a migraine...but rather could be something far more serious....Please see your doctor...and have your BP checked.

Please keep us posted.....Mary Anne

Not to sound gross but have you been vomiting severely with the migraines. I had severe vomiting with my pregnancy and this would sometimes happen. Id definately check in with a doctor though

GIpain responded:

You would be right...excessive vomitting can cause one to burst vessels in their eyes.....
