Hello everyone, first time poster

I'm looking for a diagnosis on a particular problem I've had for a number of years, this being an unending migraine headache. I've had this migraine headache for probably around 5 years, was going to a neurologist a couple years ago to treat it, but unfortunately, my insurance ran out, and couldn't see her anymore (currently on the process of trying to get back medical coverage). However, just a while back, I noticed I also had nasty nasal congestion for around the same amount of time as my migraines, and also have this strange purple dis colorization under my eyes as well (for type of discolorization, I refer to this picture http://i28.tinypic.com/30vhxyr.jpg). I'm guessing the two are linked, from what I hear, nasal congestion can cause migraine headaches, and mine is pretty bad. Is there anything I can do about it?
