Please help, i am suffering headaches that are now interfering with my daily life. I was diagnosed with migraines years ago and been through the trail and error of many medications. Recently the headaches are worse than normal and have been increasing in frequency and in intensity. They are also now accompanied with blind spots or blurred vision, facial pain (like neuralgia?). I have been refered to see a migraine specialist and also a neurologist but I don't think I can wait that long. These headaches are lasting anything up to a month, interfering with my sleep, concentration and sometimes I am in so much pain I cant concentrate enough to speak.
Please help

Im not saying 100% that it is a blood pressure problem but I have learned that headaches are a serious sign of high blood pressure. Please check it out if you havent already done it and rule it out. My mom had a stroke and it is a terrible thing to go through so I just had to give you an input. Goodluck.
