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. If it worsens, see your doctor or an urgent care. ...Read more

33 yr old female with hypertension and vertigo, blurry vision and chronic pain. Mra of spine shows vertebral artery stenosis. Could this mean surgery?

It's theLast resort : The first step is to determine if any of your symptoms are related to the stenosis. The next question is the severity of the stenosis. If you have no weakness, cramping, claudication (symptoms with exercise). This may not be the cause of your problems. You should see a doctor with experience in this problem. ...Read more
