Last night around 3am I woke up with a horrible splitting headache. The pain was all on the left side and behind my left eye. It was the worst headache I've ever had and it was causing my eye to water constantly. I also felt really nauseous and dizzy. My one eye watered so much I went through like 20 tissues just blotting it. Does this sound like a migraine? I was almost scared, imagining I had a brain tumor or something. I took some ibruprofen, ate some yogurt and was able to go back to sleep. This morning I just have a dull ache and feel a lot better. Should I go to the doctor about this or does it just sound like a normal migraine?

Sounds like a migraine, but if it is your first, it's worth calling your doctor. Are you on hormonal bc? I only ask because I had 2-3 migraines before a stroke caused by BCP.

No, I'm not on BCP. Just had a baby 4 months ago. The only med I take is levothyroxine for hypothyroid.

It actually sounds like a sinus head ache.
