I have suffered migraines since I was 12 yrs old. I hit my head on a window in a car accident and I have relatives on both sides of my family that get migraines also. My father suffered 2 strokes before his death and I have one aunt, his sister, who suffers migraines and also has mini-strokes in her eyes and is slowly going blind. I have gone from periodic migraines to daily migraines that if I try to sleep during, because Ive been told thats a good thing to do, I wake up with ocular and or retinal migraines. I get charlie horses or muscle cramps in my neck and I would just about swear I can feel my brain shift in my skull. That I'm told is my either pinching or unpinching my occipital nerve. Is that whats acutally happening and should I be worried about having strokes myself along with strokes in my eyes and vision loss also?
