Having headaches with blurry vision & slight nausea. The pain felt like someone was squeezing my head. what could this mean? The blurriness went away

Could be...: You could be having a bad tension headache. You could have a viral infection like a cold or a sinus infection. If the headache is really the only symptoms and there are no nasal / throat / cough symptoms, then I would try some ibuprofen or excederin migraine and get some sleep.
