I have problems with being forgetful, blurred vision with being unbalanced at the same time, and my speech. ?

No: Visual auras that occur before the migraine headache or even in the absence of a headache are sometimes called scintillating scotomas. Sometimes this type of headache is called a retinal migraine. The scintillation or visual changes associated with the migraine are not helped by lenses, but there are other medications that could help. ...Read more
