facial bruising associated with headaches

Posted by JB

I have suffered from severe migrains for many years and even had a period of cluster headaches four years ago. My migrains come and go but over the last few years I have started to notice facial bruising appearing after the headache kicks in. I often go to bed feeling ok only to wake up with a belter of a migraine and on my cheek bones below my eyes there are large, inch long dark reddy brown bruises. In severe cases I even get bruising between my eyebrows.  I do get some very odd comments at work, asking if I have been in a fight!

I have asked several doctors why this is happening and should I be concerned, but none of them have a clue what it is. Anyone have some answers? Any helpful comments welcome!
