For years I have endured migrane headaches my mother has them and my father also though he is dead noe from a stroke. I have high blood pressure and cholesterol problems like you wouldn't believe. Also I have Hep C. Yeah I know I'm falling apart but I try.
Anyways, I need to know if the following question is normal. A couple of years back I was lying in bed and I swear I heard like a gunshot go off in my head. I got real dizzy and my eyesight all of a sudden got blurry. The "Shot" in my head was kind of strange, more than just hearing it inside my head, there was kind of a fuzzy tingling sensation along with it. It happens every so often now, like once a year maybe 2 but no more than that. I only lasts about 15 minutes, all the other symptoms not the loud noise. What's up? Am I nuts or what? Thanks! Normally I would ask my regular doc but I'm actually afraid if I do he'll run away screaming I have so many problems with my body. My back is messed up too.
You have difficult medical history...the pain you are describing could be due to severe migraine but with the multiplicity of your problems ,I would suggeat a CT scan of your brain just to be on safe grounds.Mostly your headache is vascular or migrainous and now a days a good solution to chronic ones is a nasal inhaler of sumitraptan ;you may ask your doc and do meet a neurologist to check with your migraines.
