I've gotten weird headaches for several years(5 or 6?). my eyes start to hurt & my vision blurs. they hurt & burn until they start fighting to close. sleep helps correct it. i wear reading glasses & my rx hasn't changed. what's wrong with my eyes?

Migraine : If your eyes are not straining because your corrected vision is good, then most likely a migraine. Ask your doctor for a sample of a triptan to try the next time this headache occurs. Other closely related symptoms include not tolerating bright light or loud sounds, nasea, and neck pain.

Eye muscle strain: Please see your eye doctor to give you tips to reduce eye muscle strain otherwise take more breaks from reading during the day to reduce stress on the eye muscles.
