In 2009 I suffered a minor head injury to my forehead whist on holiday, I came home and thought I was ok. Several months later I started having problems with my vision and saw zig zag shapes after sitting in the sun one day, followed by an almighty headache. I went on holiday and the heat affected my head giving me headaches and vision problems from waking I saw black flicks. One time I totally lost all vision on my right side whilst driving. The attacks have been less sporadic this year and I have only had one attack, preceded by a unbalancing sensation and followed by a headache and slight nausea. I have tried Amitriptyline and a triptan and anti epileptic medication, initially the amitriptyline stopped the cycle of headaches but then it affected my heart rate, so I stopped talking them. I have also had migraleve with good results in the past. I am currently off sick from work after an attack yesterday, which I took Ibrofuen with little effect. I have had a CT head scan and there is apparently no damage to my brain, but I never had headaches before the injury, I am also menopausal. Can anyone suggest a medication I have not yet tried to relive the headache.
