Get examined by a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.
Headache with episodic blurring of vision may be due to migraine or raised intracranial pressure.
Examination and evaluation by a neurologist is required.
Brain imaging may be required.
Is there any seizures, vomiting, fever, loss of consciousness, speech difficulties, hearing abnormalities?
Any other medical illness?
Any drug or medications like contraceptive pills being taken?
Take timely food and proper sleep.
Pain killers may be taken when severe pain.
Get back to me with more details.

Thanks, i am type 1 diabetic (been on insulin 12 years) and have history of epilepsy. I had complex partial seizures which did not respond to medication and in 2011 had a temporal lobectomy and have been seizure free since though i still experience auras from time to time. Right now ive been having blurred vision androom spinning/shifting sensation but have not lost any awareness like the complex partial seizures.
