Thank you for posting your query.

It is possible that these are still episodes of severe migraine, however, since these are different from your usual headaches, they need to be investigated.

You should see a neurologist and get an MRI of brain done. We should exclude ischemia (lack of blood flow to brain), any internal bleeding, or brain tumor. All these can be excluded by MRI of brain.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
