    What causes headaches and blurry vision?

    I was playing a sport, and while I was playing my vision started to get blurry.  I couldn't concentrate or even see the ball. It felt like I had looked at the sun for awhile, but it didn't go away. Around half an hour after that I started to get a really bad headache which was unbearable. When I got home, I threw up on the grass. Now, 6 days later my vision is still blurry. My eyes feel dry, but I don't think it's that.  Anyway, thanks in advance.

    Hello adacoo,


    I remember having my first symptoms like yours. It was a bit scary, especially when I felt so sick on top of all the other symptoms.


    In my case, it turned out I had a migraine, but the only way I could know that was to see a doctor who could look at me and my personal medical history and make a diagnosis. Once that diagnosis is made by a doctor who is knowledgeable, the treatment can begin.


    My symptoms were pretty classic for a migraine. You are having some symptoms that are a little less common. If your doctor isn’t able to help, it may well be time to consult a migraine and headache specialist. It’s important to note that neurologists aren’t necessarily migraine and headache specialists. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special?



    Unexplained head pain always needs to be checked out. Statistically, it's unlikely to be anything dangerous, but we never want to be on the wrong end of those statistics.
