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

Migraine

Head-eye
This is most likely a manifestation of occipital migraine. It can also rarely be a type of minimal seizure. The next time it happens, if you see the phenomenon in 1/2 of the field of view the same in each eye (cover one eye and then the other), then it is almost certainly migraine. If it does not have this pattern, then you should see a neurologist for evaluation.

I've had a headache for four days behind my eyes, extreme sweating and hot flushes when sleeping, weakness and swollen lymph node. What's wrong?

More details

It could be many things but looks like you have an infection could be sinusitis or pharingitis or could also be a virus like flu or any other similar one. You should seek medical assessment if does not resolve on its own in 24- 48 hrs

Dr. David Sneid answered:

I am a 49 year old woman going through menopause, 5 out of 7 nights I wake up with a major hot flash along with a massive headache. Is this serious?

No and yes

It's not physically serious, but certainly uncomfortable and interferes with your life. The symptoms will usually decrease with time, but may persist. Estrogen therapy can postpone the symptoms until you stop the estrogen. Some docs use SSRI's, but may have side effects. Low dose clonidine (0.5 mg twice daily) helps some and had very few side effects. Ask your doc.

Migraine headache

Vision
Your description sounds like migraine headaches but you need to have a complete eye exam to make sure everything with eye is ok. Flashing lights can be a sign of retinal disease so a dilated exam is needed as soon as possible.
