In brief: See doc...migraine?

Migraine is quite common and vision/hearing symptoms such as spots/waves, sensitivity to loud noises etc.
..May indicate migrainous headaches etc...Keep a headache log--when it usually occurs, relationship with food/sleep/possibly menstrual cyscles etc...If family members have mirgaine, this makes it more likey ect.. Consult doc for an eval and possible treatment.. Good luck..
