What causes headaches along with dizziness and blurred vision?

My 16yr old son is experiencing headaches when standing up (aching and throbbing), slight dizziness, vision issues when turning his head quickly, muscle aches. He is sleeping fine and eating normally. No fever, no swollen glands, no sore throat. Our worry is MONO. His girlfriend had mono over the christmas break (from mid dec to just after new years before feeling better).

There can be possible mono or other viral infection which can present similarly as a headache, dizziness and blurred vision as secondary manifestations of underlying infection.

I would recommend to consult him with his physician for evaluation for basic parameters, necessary lab tests, and management in accordance with that.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

While screaming and cheering on our football team my husband felt a pop in his head. He immediately became dizzy and with blurred vision along with hearing only muffled sounds. He got a headache right after that and hasn t felt good since. What should we do? Does he need to go to ER?

Hi, for a couple days now I ve been feeling lightheaded, dizzy, and my vision will start to blur. I know I m not about to pass out because I ve passed out several times and I know how my body reacts to that. I also have been having pain in my head, almost like a headache, but more on my left temple. If I lay down my head will feel like it has tremendous pressure and it makes it hard to sleep. I ll also get ringing in my ears, or won t be able to hear as well. What could this be? I ve been tested for blood clots and don t have any, but I also have high blood pressure and I m only 20. Any ideas?

I have been having spells that last between 1-3 hours where I start to fade away from my environment and become light headed, can t think clearly, trouble with my gait at times, walking crooked, and very drowsy, I became lethargic and fought to stay conscious for 3 hours 2 weeks ago. Ive been an RN for 20 years and thought perhaps it is related to my systemic mastocytosis but my pupils seems dilated to me for weeks now and today seem bigger but I feel not too bad today compared to most days. I see neurology next week and eye exam but my pupils do concern me. I also had my first anaphylaxis the other day. My vision seems to have deterioriated significantly the past 3 months. I was told 2 years ago I may be able to get by with reader glasses for a few years but my sight has really declined. I have also had some migraine type headaches on and off the past 2 weeks. I have uncontrolled b/p at times due to my POTS disease and mastocytosis.
