I have seen several neurologists who all said I had migraines. I have had migraines before this is no migraine. The head pain lasted over 2 months. After 3 ER visits I was put in the hospital for 5 days, they nearly killed me. Saw 5 neurologists, spinal tap, MRI, CT, blood tests. Sent me home after I passed out and said I had migraines.
Now my vision is off. From my symptoms my PCP says it sounds like I had meningitis in the beginning and not treated may have caused brain seizures. Note that I never run fevers even when I'm sick.
The head pain is better, I am on two anti seizure meds. Eye pain is bad, vision too, can't focus on things for very long or the head pain comes back and my neck still hurts some.
Any suggestions?
Making an appointment with opthalmologist soon.
