why does it hurt to roll our eyes while having a headache?

Every time I have a headache or migraine and move my eyes to the limit of our eyesight it hurts like hell. Why is that?

Headache usually increases the pressure in your head due to increased blood in the area. This means that when you roll your eyes to the limit, the muscles press against an area where it is already under pressure due to swelling and blood. This just makes it hurt more.
