    22 year old with constant headaches and vision disturbances

    I'm a 22 year old female. I've had recurrent headaches off and on throughout my life, but never anything severe. About two weeks ago, I started getting a dull headache, and it has been constant ever since. I had some vision disturbances similar to migraine auras, but otherwise just have had tunnel vision, some dizziness or lightheadedness and slight blurriness and occasional spots continuously since I've had the headache. The pain starts in the back of my head near my neck and radiates all over my head, and becomes sharp and more painful if I exert myself. The pain is helped somewhat with over the counter medications, but the pain never completely goes away and always returns within a few hours. Could this be migraines, and if so, is it normal for them to last this long? I was always under the impression that migraines were shorter and excruciating, and while this is moderately painful, it's not usually what I would consider excruciating. Can anyone help me out?

    Re: 22 year old with constant headaches and vision disturbances

    Hi Im no expert but have sufferd headaches for over 30 years. I have made several visits to the Doc & specialists within this field. To date not one of them can tell me just exactly what type of headache I suffer with. I beleive they could be a mixture of various types but are typically classic signs & symptoms of Migraine. I have read on this subject exhaustively & what you are explaining sound to me to be Migraine headache. There are several different classes of Migraine all different in them selves & within these classses dozens that all have slight variations on each other. There are special types of medication available but the doctors here in the UK are reluctant to prescribe due to the expense of some of them. I sincerely hope you find a satisfactory remedy to you headaches I know how you are feeling it has had a major impact upon my life. Please do let me know how you get on. Kind Regards. Al.
