If your question were simple or clear-cut, it would be different, but it isn't. It's unrealistic to expect the kind of answer you seek from docs who have no ethically sanctioned physician-patient relationship with you. HealthTap is no substitute for a thorough history and careful examination by a live doctor who's physically present. Any other response would be doing you a disservice.

The ER is the last place to go with a headache as it is bright, noisy, and busy. Unlikely that MRI will help! See a neurologist and get this handled ASAP
