ok, i hate to make a new thread but my friend wont go to doctors and he wont even go to websites like this to ask whats wrong so heres whats going on:

about 4 months ago my friend and i were going to the mall, we were just looking at all these shoes when all of a sudden he just started sweating like crazy. so i was asking what was wrong and he just told me he was going to the bathroom.

so about 30 mins go by and i check my phones messages (i check them once every 30 mins) and i got a message from him saying that he was sorry and he was sick and he had to go home. told me to forget about it so i did.

then i find out (about 2 months later) that he had passed out and was rushed to the hospital. what had happened was he fell over and was throwing up a lot, the message i got was from another one of his friends. but thats all i remember hearing.

he was fine and his normal self. then yesterday we were hanging out at a friends house and he got a MASSIVE migraine, well thats what we think it was. he said these things were happening during the "migraine":

Hallucinations
Blurred Vision
Light beaming off things (like if he stared at a chair it looked like light was radiating off of it)
Cramping in the ribs and stomach
Flickering Lights at random times
Tingling in hands feet and face (around the eyes)
and Vomitting

i have read that Hallucinations are a very BAD sign of migraines. so we pretty much ordered him to go to the doctors today. but he wouldn't go.

anybody know whats wrong? i hate to say this but i hope there is something wrong (not bad but mild, mild enough that he realises that he needs to see a doctor)

thanks in advance and ill keep updated with what ever other symptoms he gets.
