Should you go to a dr for visual migraines?
I don't know if I suffer from migraine but for many years i've had headaches very often. Then 2 years ago I had my first visual disturbances, I saw colors floating around in my vision and everything else was blurry and it lasted for 30 minutes then I had a headache. Then I got it again last year and just now I was about to get it again but I think I managed to revert it by resting my eyes before it broke out for real and i've had a headache for over a week that regular pain killers don't do anything for.
I have mentioned my headaches to doctors multiple times in the past and they've said "headaches are normal". One doctor even adviced me to take 7 painkillers a day and said that it's not dangerous which obviously it is !!! So I gave up and I have never told a doctor about my visual migraine attacks. My family says I do not suffer from migraines because those are so debiliating you can't do anything but i'm so used to headaches at this point that i've learned to live with them but i'd never leave the house for long without having painkillers with me because I never know when a headache is gonna hit.
