    I keep getting really bad headaches,in the back/middle of my head, sometimes they can last 1-2 weeks, I often feel really nauseous, my vision gets blurry and I get dizzy especially when I get up after sitting for a while. My blood tests results were ok :/

    This sounds serious enough that you should at minimum see a doctor. Asking on TSR will not get you anywhere. It's entirely possible that it's nothing but if it's recurring then there may be an underlying issue that you need to get checked out

    Maybe migraine, could be stress or blood pressure. Have you spoken to your doctor?

    I was referred for a blood test but that's about it. If you have any suggestions, like what other tests I could do, feel free to share, might try to get them done privately.

    Just ask to speak to a different doctor, there's no need to get it done privately you just need a second opinion

    A few months ago. I wear contact lenses but I don't think they're the reason.

    How are your sleeping habits?
    Hmm same as always. Sometimes I go to bed a bit late, though, like at 1am. I usually get at least 8-9hrs of sleep, often more, like 10-11.

    I feel like they don't take me seriously to be honest. Not even the receptionists - like always demanding to know why I want an appointment, suggesting that perhaps I don't need one and they can just ask the GP to give me a call, for a quick consultation, instead. My GP practice used to be good but with all these new rules, it totally went downhill.

    If you feel like that, it might be a good idea to switch practices.

    I live in a small town, and there aren't actually any other practices near me (not in a walking distance anyway) *sigh*

    Might be migraines, especially if bloods came back fine.
    Talk to your doctor and keep going back to them after tests until you know what it is. If it is migraines acupuncture can work to stop them- ask an osteopath or your doctor about it if you're interested. There are also painkillers designed specifically for migraines and co-codamol can be purchased at a low dose from any pharmacy or higher dose on prescription.

    If the doctor can't work it out you can ask to get a referral to a specialist- maybe a neurologist.

    Good luck.

    Blodd tests aren't a be all, end all for telling you what's wrong. Keep going to the doctor and saying there's something wrong. Get a different opinion. I'm no expert but if there were something wrong with my head I'd want a doctor to be examining my head, not my blood
