I've always had light sensitive eyes, ever since I was very young. To the point where I'd get headaches from squinting all day every day during the summer and to the point where I never could use a night light because the light from the night light would bother my eyes, even with my eyes closed. I also have weird eyes- one is near sighted and one is far sighted. I had a lazy eye when I was a child and sometimes it's just barely noticable now as an adult, when I'm tired. I haven't seen an eye doctor in a while, 'cause my insurance doesn't cover it. That being said...
I've had a headache (not a migraine) for three days now accompanied by extreme sensitivity to light. Headaches that last a couple days (migraines as well as non-migraines) are common for me, usually accompanied by stress. But... I realized how sensitive my eyes are lately when I took my son outside to play and, even though it was very cloudy today, I had my sunglasses on and the "sunlight" was still hurting my eyes, and when I was more comfortable keeping my sunglasses on once we'd come inside.
Anyone here have similar experiences? Is this normal?
I have what I would consider greater than normal sensitivity to light. I can't stand bright sunny days b/c they hurt my eyes and make me feel nervous and nauseated. Good think I live in NE Ohio where it is gray most of the time LOL
It is worse and most noticeable when I have an Epstein BArr Virus flareup. Have you been tested for that?

Nope, never heard of it. Going to go look it up on Google in a minute.
I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but on the 5th day, I woke up to find Aunt Flo visiting and my light sensitivity gone (or at least, back to normal).
