From whence this sensation of a cold drop of water dripping on my leg?

For multiple days I keep feeling like a cold drop of water has just dripped directly onto my leg, in the same spot each time. The first time, I was 100% sure that there was a leak in my ceiling. The next few times I still found myself looking up, somewhat confusedly. It has continued to happen multiple times a day. Is this just a quirky body thing, or a known symptom of something to take slightly seriously? [more inside]

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.)
