Cerebral AVM or what?
Hello,

My name is Adam and I'm a 19 year old Caucasian male. I am not sure what is wrong with me (other than migraines and cluster headaches) and I am wondering if I should go to the hospital ASAP for my concerns.

I have been diagnosed with migraines in the past, but I am not quite so sure that is the whole story. I have headaches that feel like migraines, but I also have headaches that feel like exploding blood vessels or strange blood flow, I can't really explain it.

I have had headaches that felt like I was having a stroke, painful enough to where I thought I was going to die. The incredibly painful exploding headaches only last for a few minutes.

These are my symptoms:
-Cognitive Impairment (dyslexia, difficulty concentrating, problem solving, confusion) [This can increase and often
     does, I am intelligent, but I can definitely tell when I am not at my best]

-Memory loss

-Intermittent Vision Problems (Blurred/Double, Spots, Floaters, Blind Spots (small black voids), Static Vision)

-Ringing Ears (high pitches or a whooshing noise, doesn't happen very often, worsens when I lay down)

-Severe Chronic Headaches (All day, everyday)
  Pain can feel like: Stabbing, burning, electrocuting, exploding, throbbing, dull, and it can be on one side, two
  sides, or everywhere

-After walking up a few flights of stairs (2-6), my heart starts racing and I have labored breathing (I ran track and
   in shape)

-Face tingling

-Legs, Hands, and Face muscle twitching

-Uncontrolled eye movement (like "shaking" my eyes, but not doing it on purpose)
