    A few of the symptoms and signs you are suffering are concerning such as the dizziness and nausea which may relate to a possible sinister cause. Your first point of call should be your primary care practitioner to rule out any of the nastier causes of these signs. 

    The other signs and symptoms you relate could be due to multiple types of  headache and even migraine. A more appropraite history and examination would determine which type.

    Your symptoms represent a vast array of possibilities. Best to get yourself to a professional.

    I agree with the Dr. Ryan's answers, see your GP again and ask for another referral for special imaging to rule out any other causes.  If these are clear, I have found weaknesses in cranial nerve function (the nerves that are in your skull that control functions such as eye movements and hearing) can cause the dizziness.  Quantum neurology has a specific protocol for improving vertigo. I personally have experienced vertigo and know all about the challenges you are experiencing.  Quantum Neurology was such a big help for me.  You can google them on the internet.

    I went to a neurologist and he is sending me for a spinal tap amd an MRI w/no contrast I always thought it would be best to us contrast considering cancer runs on both sides of my genes or do you think without the contrast it could still show if something is wrong
