Hello and welcome.

Thank you for your query.

Although there can be many causes for a headache and thus many different types of headaches at the end of the day.

Your extra detailing does help in classifying it. Let me list a few symptoms of a common condition:

-One sided headache (as described by patients)
-Blurry vision, spots in vision making it difficult to focus on an object
-Debilitating (cannot concentrate on anything else, thus very limiting)
-An intolerance to light (photophobia) i.e. it worsens the headache
-Similar intolerance to sound (worsens the headache)
-Stiffness of head or neck (although doesn't cause any such thing, patient believes it true, as not making sudden movements helps in keeping the pain down)
-More common in female, especially teenagers and around menopause
-A pre-migraine Aura (mild headache+the vision disturbance; makes you feel like you are in a trance like state)

If most or all of these presentations match that of yours, there could be a possibility that you have a migraine

Also please note that migraines are found to have a triggering factor in different patients. For some it is stress, whereas for others it is related to diet (prolonged periods of starvation, or over-eating), weather, etc. Once we establish a diagnosis of migraine, we can then talk to the patient and try to figure out the triggering factor, and thus avoid it. This is a condition which is treatable and avoidable.

Please discuss the possibility with your Physician or neurologist to confirm the diagnosis and also help you with the treatment.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
