Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question. There are many commonly believed triggers for migraine headaches. For some people, wine, cheeses and chocolate are common triggers. For others the fluorescent lighting often seen in offices or the using the computer are triggers. Other people have stress as a trigger or bright lights. And then some people have triggers that are unique to them, but there nonetheless.
Of the three possible causes of the migraines, I would go first to the computer. Marijuana use is not a known trigger of migraines; in fact some people use it for some relief from the migraines. The mineral deficiency theory is also not a commonly appreciated trigger of migraine headaches.
I would first start out by analyzing what or if any of the foods/drinks you ingest may have a pattern of causing them. As far as your computer work, I would use artificial tears 3-4x/day to help your eyes not be too dry from the computer work. In addition, try to have as much natural light available while working on the computer and take frequent breaks to focus away from the computer.
