Blurry and spotted vision followed by headache
This use to happen ones of twice a month, but for the last month it's been
happening ones or twice a week. I did go to my doc and he gave me brufen to
"drive the pain away". He said it could be stress or my eyes. I went for new
spectacles but it didn't help.

Liz, it certainly does sound like the headache is caused by an eye problem. It’s a bit worrying that the frequency is increasing, so my advice would be to see an ophthalmologist (eye specialist, not the people that sell glasses) a.s.a.p. Good luck.
