Hi,

This sounds like something called a complex migraine. They can often present similar to strokes. If it does not improve or gets worse go back to the ER. Also, consider seeing a neurologist for further recommendations.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Brandon Bikowski, Internal Medicine Specialist
