Couple thots: You may possess a greater occipital neuralgia, which could well trigger the migraines, and if your variety is classical migraine, that might explain the disturbances, as a migraine aura. But cannot fully exclude a problem within the cranial cavity, so, in your case, an MRI of brain would be helpful.

If you are having: Problems talking and vision changes acutely, then you need to get someone to take you to the er now. If you have these symptoms always with your migraines and you have had full workup, it may be a different story. However, if these symptoms are new, have someone get you to an er or call can ambulance to rule out a stroke. Please do not take these symptoms lightly if they are new onset.
