    I have suffered from migraines for many years and lately it's got a lot worse. I had an eye test to rule that out but have now been referred to a specialist because of high eye pressure and repeated loss of field vision. The optician didn't give me much info and when I looked online all I could find was information about glaucoma. I'm only 22 and everyone keeps telling me glaucoma only affects older people, so I am assuming this won't be the problem.
    So I'm just wondering if anyone can offer any advice about high eye pressure etc before I see the specialists as I'm quite anxious.

    It can be anything really. Could even be that your sinuses tend to get blocked up! Good news is that nearly all the possibilities are very treatable.
