In brief: CVA

You ought to go see your doc and get checked out.
Headaches are very common but with your history you should not take a chance.

In brief: Probably not

Topamax (topiramate) doesn't work with all patients or all headaches, and maybe only helps 60-70% of true migraine sufferers.
Contact your doctor and find a more effective med, but, just to be safe, get examined, and if necessary additional testing.
