Neurologist 's  Response

Thanks for the query,

I feel that this could be due to migraine. Note that the diagnosis of migraine is secured only after ruling out other causes. If you cannot afford any other investigations and evaluation, you may try consulting a physician in a public sector. You will benefit with medications like Amitryptiline, Propranolol, Valproate etc along with regular food/sleep habit and avoidance of stress and other precipitating factor.

Hope this helps
Best wishes
