That is a good: Question. Glasses wrong prescription or brain tumor? Extreme? They are treated very differently, so i hope you take more time then just asking to find out the real cause, then i could stop worrying about you.

A 44-year-old member asked:

I keep seeing jagged flashes of lightning bolts that shimmer around an object followed by an intense headache. Are these hallucinations?

No: These are not hallucinations and you need to be seen by a doctor. Seeing lightning bolts can mean there is eye problem like a torn retina or neurologic problem like a migraine. If you are pregnant, visual changes associated with a headache can indicate a serious complication called pre eclampsia. If you have these symptoms it is very important you see a doctor for further evaluation.

Many possibilities: Do you tend to hold your breath while doing something strenuous or lifting a weight? Do you exercise on an empty stomach, after insufficient sleep, or without keeping yourself adequately hydrated? Have you had your blood pressure checked?

Depends on cause: Without a proper diagnosis, there's no way to know the cause or proper treatment.For simple, non-recurrent ha's, might try ice to head or neck, sleep, massage, meditation. A good hands-on osteopathic exam, whether pain is short-term or chronic, might find a mechanical cause - often from neck pain/dysf, rib problems, even sacral problems which can be treated with manipulation. Just some suggestions.
