Migraine type headache, eye socket pain, temple pain, neck pain, and blurry vision all on the left side. Is this an emergency?

I have a pineal gland cyst.Woke up with a migraine, stiff tension in neck and left back of head is swollen, blurry vision weak body. Aneurysm?

Pineal cysts: Pineal cysts are incidental findings and have a benign natural history. Natural history studies show that these cysts do not grow. An aneurysm is an outpouching on the wall of an arterial wall. An MRI and MRA of the brain is a good screening test to exclude an aneurysm. Tension migraines often arise from tense neck muscles that insert on the back of the head. See a neurosurgeon. ...Read more

Migraine with aura or storke happened 4 times in my life im 29 get real week after and blurry vision hands lips go to sleep neurolgist said CT normal?

If you have a history of seizures, why are you not on ant-epileptics? the primary goal in evaluating a seizure is to resolve whether the seizure resulted from a treatable systemic process or intrinsic dysfunction of the central nervous system Should have MRI, serum electrolytes, EEG, even LP if indicated. Why are you on Sertaline? ...Read more
