Hi XXXXXXX,
Thanks for posting your query.
Let me know the associated symptoms along with headache.
Do you have running nose & tears from eyes and vomiting/ nausea?
What is the type of headache?
What are the aggravating factors for headache?
Do you have past history of similar type of headache?
Do you have any other abdominal symptoms apart from mentioned one?

Migraine is the most common type of headache and it may or may not be associated with other symptoms such as dry mouth, bloating of stomach and blurring of vision (as in your case).
These associated symptoms are called as "Aura".
Migraine is associated with pulsating type of headache.
Tears from eyes and running nose is generally seen in tension headache.
Sometimes tension headache & migraine is simultaneously present.
Migraine gets aggravated after exposure to sunlight, noise pollution. lack of sleep, during menses and after intake of coffee & tea.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ neurologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for CT/ MRI scan brain imaging to rule out intracranial pathology and complete blood count and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).
You should take proper treatment for rapid recovery.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hello, My father is diagnosed on the basis of an MRI with the following: 1. Grade 1 retrolisthesis at L2-3 level. 2. Vertebral endplate irregularity with signal alterations at L2-3 - mostly represents degenerative spondylitis 3. Broad based herniations at L3-4 and L4-5 with mild impression on thecal sac and bilateral adjacent nerve roots. We were told that this could lead to some severe problems with bowel and bladder movement. Is it possible to find out when and how this could occur? What will be the symtoms for bladder and bowel problems? Please advice. Regards, Sundar

I have a problem that is not resolving. I have right eye ptososis, strabismus, the eye no longer moves to the left and lately constant weeping/tearing from the eye. In the cavernous sinus, I have greater ectasia on the right vs left carotid on MRI and a vascular blush on a cerebral angiogram, suggestive of inflammation, tumor or fistula. Currently, there is no identified aneurysm, no inflammation or infection in CSF or blood, no identified fistula, and no tumor on MRI. High dose steroids are not resolving the problem. What other things could be assessed/examined?
