In brief: See a Neurologist
Vision loss and speech difficulties associated with migraine elevate the classification of your disorder to complicated migraine.
Nausea/vomiting, photophobia, phonophobia are frequent symptoms accompaning migraine. Typically complicated migraine is not responsive to otc medications, but there are medications when given at the onset of the headache that can abort it. You should see a neurologist.
