See your doctor: Headaches are not uncommon at the time of the menses. Often these headaches are due to migraine, a type of headache which leads to nausea/vomiting. There is good medication to control/prevent these headaches. Ask your doctors help to relieve you of this problem.

Migraine, medication complications, and anxiety, would be the top 3 causes. As DR. Vogel suggests, see an ophthalmologist for complete exam and /or Neurophthalmologist in your area
