Just to give you a little background-I've suffered with migraines since I was 5, they subsided when I was around 13, and came back full force when I was around 17. I'm graduating college soon and will be attending law school, so some think my migraines are attributed to stress. I get them on average of 4x a week. They don’t' go away on their own after a couple of days so I'm always forced to take some type of medication and pray it works so I can at least function like a regular human being.

My question is, since January I've been periodically getting migraines that don’t' feel like my regular ones. I went to the doctor on NYE and they took me to the ER because they thought I was having a brain aneurysm, thankfully after 9 1/2 hours of waiting they found out I wasn't, which was a relief. But, every now and then, maybe 1 in 10 migraines will be strange and feel a lot different that my usual ones. My usual ones are a lot of throbbing and pain around one side of my head. The different ones feel like regular ones except that my vision blurs(my eyes go in and out of focus), and honestly the only two ways to describe the pain is a brain freeze type of sensation and it also feels as though there's a dent in the side of my head where the pain is located. So far I've been to around 3 doctors and all of them really don't know what to tell me, and usually seem just as flabbergasted as I am.

Does anyone else experience these? If so, what explanations have you been given about them?

I would say you need a Neurologist. I know other posts have talked about how it could be heart related, other disorders and stuff. I recently found out from my neurologist I need a MRI of my neck. He thinks mine are "Arthritis" in the neck related.
