I am sorry about your prolonged symptoms. You need further investigative work up. It would be recommended that you go to a neurologist. Following work up, if not yet done would be advised;

1) visual field testing;
2) erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP)
3) MRI with Gadolinium contrast
4) Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).

Migraine is a possibility. Please read the symptoms of the migraine in this resource;


There are two types of medications used for the treatment of migraine;


1) To abort the attack


Dopamine antagonists




2) To prevent the headache


Valproic acid, gabapentin

Calcium channel blockers

Beta-blockers, tricyclic antidepressants


There are dietary triggers known which should be avoided. Common triggers are

a) chocolate,

b) aged cheeses and meats,

c) wine and beer

d) citrus fruits.


Please feel free for your follow up questions.


I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
