Long story but I will condense as much as possible. 12 years or so ago, I was diagnosed and treated for cervical migraines that gave me neck pain that radiated to left eye. Was treated with pain med, muscle relaxer and ibuprofen. It worked well and after a few years the pain went away. The doctor has since retired.
This year I was at work and suddenly I felt all the visual symptoms hit me along with mild headache, neck pain, ringing in ear etc. I didn't know what was going on
I have been to 7 or 8 different doctors including optometrist and chiropractors.
No doctor had any answers
Finally , after many test, mri s(4 months later)a neurologist said u have migraines.
The only resemblance it had to my previous experience was the neck pain and occasional left eye pain.
The wild visual crop I get was almost unexplainable until recently. It's almost like i look through a Kaleidescape, without the colors, when it's at its worse. Other times items can vibrate and occasionally it feels like my brain vibrates similar to when a barber holds clippers next to yours skull trimming around your ears.
I do get some dull aches behind eyes though
None of the medicines seem to work so far. Some of them sedate me so much I can't function. I would really like to see a different doctor if anyone knows one in middle Tn area
