    What is the difference between a migraine disorder and an arachnoid cyst on the brain
    My doc said I have a migraine disorder, I think my symptoms are caused from my cyst. Anyone can help me? I have ringing in my ears and visions goes out sometimes THEN my head will start to feel like its full of something and the pressure is unbearable. I do have migraines, but what I feel on a day to day basis isn't a migraine or a normal headache!

    Honestly? YOUR DOCTOR told you that you have migraine disorder. You disagree so I instead of scheduling with a neurologist and getting a 2nd opinion, you come to Dr. Google and ask the general public? LOL! Come on. Iím a nurse, but Iím not going to try to assess you through a forum. You need to get a 2nd medical opinion from a licensed medical doctor.
