My migraines have been starting out as extremely blurry vision, almost can't see at all, after that starts to clear up I get really horrible pain in the back of my head that radiates to the front along with photophobia. It is pretty frighting, at first I feel like I'm having a stroke, not that I ever had one, but it seems like it would be something like that. I'm 29 year old and have been diagnosed with POTS.

The hospital did a CAT scan and nothing unusual was found. They said it was a complex migraine but I can't find any info on that.

Any help on what kind of migraine it is would help, and any treatment options.

Thanks so much,

Do a migraine diary and see a neurologist :)

Migraine diary consists of what, when you ate and drank, medications and when a migraine comes on.


6am 2 pieces wheat toast w/ peanut butter
1 orange
Cup of coffee w/ non dairy creamer and sugar

9am 1 banana
Cup of V8 juice
Medication- Name here

10am Migraine starts
Symptoms include: blindness, headache pain level 10, trigger points (where it hurts the most) located behind eyes

If you do that you can see what might be causing the migraines, and you can do a process of elimination to find your migraine triggers (what makes the migraines happen)
