Severe sharp headache pain/ slight dizziness only when I laugh?

I know it may seem “weird” but it’s been almost a year now and everytime I laugh my head starts to throb and I get a sharp pain that follows and my vision will slightly go blurry not a lot just a little bit  and I have to stop laughing and stand still for a few minutes for the pain to go away. The pain has been getting worse

Have any of you guys expierenced this? I also was wondering should I see my dr about this or would I be wasting my time?

This isn't so "weird". It falls under the category of cough headaches, and there are two types of them - https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/primary-cough-headaches/symptoms-causes/syc-20371200

You should definitely see your doctor about it. Since it's new, and your vision is affected, and it's getting worse, it's absolutely time to see the doctor. This could be nothing, but it could also be a sign of something far more serious. It's good to get it ruled out.

Let us know what happens.
