Possible Migraines

I am 17 years old and I have severe headaches a couple times a year. I was on this site and got me thinking on whether or not they're migraines. When it happens, it starts out as a pain behind one of my eyes slightly below the forehead. Then it gets worse and worse and worse until i can't concentrate on anything. I usually just lie down and try to fall asleep. Usually I have slight nausea (from the pain possibly) with these headaches.

The first time, I thought it was a normal headache, so I just tried to wait it out (Tylenlol or any kind of OTC painkiller has never worked for me, no matter the dosage). It got very severe, so I took 2 Aleves. I'm not sure if it was these that helped, or it just went away on its own. Most of the time, these pains take 2-3 hours to cease. I was just wondering if these are considered migraines or if I just have a low tolerance for headaches.
