You don't state your age in this question. This would help to try to pinpoint what might be causing your problem. Blurred vision, loss of vision that precede the onset of headaches seem very much like migraines barring any other major neurological causes, such as stroke, seizure or brain tumor. This said, you need to see a good headache neurologist for a proper consultation on this matter. If this is a migraine it can certainly be triggered by the hormonal fluctuations of the premenstrual and menstrual times of the month.

Pathologist and Microbiologist Dr. Anju Choudhary's  Response
hi marissa, what you have described can be caused due to lots of reason ranging from simple ones like anemia to very serious ones which will need thorough investigation. To find out the cause you must visit your family physician or your health care provider and get your routine blood exam, done to rule out any blood related cause. Later more tests like CT scan or MRI can be done to rule out other pathology. Whatever it may be it has to be addressed at the earliest and do not neglect it.
