YES, YES, YES, YES, AND YES.....
Double vision can be a common problem with migraines, especially with migraines with aura...(again, not saying that people who have migraines with aura can not have double vision)
Welcome. I generally suffer from double vision and other visual disturbances with my migraines. My neurologist explains that it comes from the blodd vessels next to my optic nerve swelling and putting pressure on it or them as it may be with double vision.
I take a triptan (i.e. zomig, imitrex, amerge) and that usually stops it. It can be very disconcerting especially when I'm driving. It's happened so long I have grown accustomed to it and make sure I carry my medication with me.
It's always a good idea for your husband to see the doctor whenever his headaches change, or the symptoms. But if this is associated with his migraines there is nothing to be worried about - so says my neurologist. I think this is my most disconcerting symptom. It's probably the symptom I bring up the most. My neurologist doesn't do MRIs or CAT scans he has done other movement tests coupled with my history - the most telling for me is that the symptoms come and go - and is confident there is no tumor or more serious condition involved. All doctors and patients are different.
