Is there a name for this migraine symptom?

I periodically get migraines (headache, neck pain, nausea/vomiting, light/sound sensitivity). I don't get auras, but I do get an odd visual symptom. One of the ways I can tell the difference from a tension or general headache during onset is that I will want to take my glasses off. As the attack progresses, I find it uncomfortable to look at things. It's a bit hard to describe, but it's as though the act of focusing my eyes, especially on anything close, exacerbates both the nausea and the light sensitivity. It feels related to, but separate from, the light sensitivity symptom. Is this an observed phenomena in other people, and does it have it's own medical name? (Note, I'm not asking for treatment options, just the proper diagnosis/name for the symptom.)

Daily headaches & migraines - how can I be free of them??

Dear MeFites, please help me find a way to live without these constant headaches. I have had chronic daily headaches, and at least 2-3 migraines a month, for the past ten years. I have tried everything I can think of short of surgery but nothing besides taking painkillers seems to help (and those only a little these days). [more inside]

I Want to Drink Red Wine Again

I get migraines from MSG (including many "hidden sources"), meat cured with nitrates, and red wine (I think tannins or sulfites or something). As long as I avoid those triggers, I'm relatively headache-free. However, I really love red wine. I haven't had it for about 4 years, and I miss it. Are there types of wines that are better than others for keeping headaches at bay? Organic or certain types?

Migraine and Kids

What options are available for children of 5 years with Migraine? Last night my son had his first. I started with them at 5 too, but back then there were to triptans or anything else. I've put the question in to the family doctor and haven't heard back yet, but I'm sure the answer I get will be limited to the Dr's experience and training. So, MeFi, what do you do for your kids when they suffer an attack?
