I get severe headache on my temple and usually affects my vission with blurred vision and my hearing such as people talking normally sound like yelling, even when they are talking soft. I get headaches on both sides of my head, and usually get red underneath my eyes. I also usually get very weak around this time and also will get dizzy and sometimes blackout upon standing up.i even get dizzy just sitting. It almost feels as though a knife is being driven through my head. I do throw up from time to time, and the headaches last 10 hours through 4 days and occours between 4 to 7 days a week. I have had 2 doctors recommend me to an mri, one was a military doctor, other was a small office doctor, but an mri cost too much, and i currently am looking for a job.Any ideas what it could be?

  • This sounds like a classic migraine. That is EXACTLY what I experience when I get migraines. I was diagnosed with basilar migraines and take medications to prevent them which work very well. Quite frankly I am shocked your doctors didn't tell you that you have migraines.... Yours sound textbook.
