What is the cause for severe head ache and dizziness ?

I have a history of migraines for almost 10 years. First one was bad enough I was taken to ER and there BP was 200/125. Since then, most migraines do increase BP but not that high. Normal BP is 140s/80-90. Normally, migraines are sudden onset and include photoboia, nausea and heavy feeling along with headache . Last night, I was on the computer and suddenly realized I could only see 1/2 of the screen. After a bit, I realized I could not understand what I did see on the screen and kept trying to re-read what I saw. I tried to call a friend to ask about it and when she answered, I couldn t get out the words I needed to say. I couldn t think of right words and the words I did get out made no sense. I was totally aware of this fact and I was getting scared. She texted me and I had trouble understanding what she wrote and my texts back made no sense either. My kids were nearby and I started trying to read aloud and could not do it. Words I knew were coming out wrong and other words I couldn t even recognize. The kids kept correcting me. I started feeling very woozy, so I laid down. Very shortly, I got a very severe headache. I couldn t lift my head, couldn t tolerate light or sound. I took my BP and it was 250/140. When I tried to go to bed, I was very dizzy and felt like I didn t recognize where I was. I finally made it to my daughter s room and laid down. I woke up today feeling fine. I assumed it was a migraine but the more I read, I am not so sure. A friend suggested it might be a stroke, but surely I would know, right? Even if it was a stroke, does it matter at this point since all seems fine now?

welcome to the health care magic forum,the symptoms you mentioned suggest it to be of a severe migraine ,also it seems that its intensity is increasing day-by-day,first of all you need to identify the triggers of this migraine attacks and try to avoid it,as like you mentioned of working on the computer ,do not exert much to your self,avoid gong in sunlight for long time ,and most imp u need some investigations like CT brain to rule out any complications in the vital parts of the brain related with intelligence/memory.

get wellsoon !
