    Migraines and other problems

    A couple of months ago I ended up in the emergency room for what I suppose was a seizure of some sort. It started with a migraine that just got worse and worse and eventually I just couldn't move or speak well. My friends thought I may have gotten roofied or something like that but at the hospital they checked. I don't drink so there was no alcohol involved. My blood pressure was extremely high hovering around 190 over 120. They asked if I had any head trauma and I told them that I've had countless concussions while playing soccer. I play goal keeper and I have absolutely no regard for my own body when I'm on the field. I get kicked in the head a lot. They recommended I follow up with a neurologist. Well, I don't have health insurance so that's not happening anytime soon. I also have these sort of dreams where I wake up but I'm still dreaming and I interact with my environment but there are extra things there. Like I woke up one night and there was a soccer field in my room and it seemed completely normal. The balls weren't going in the goal but there was no one blocking them. So I got up and I went to my mom's room and asked her "who's stopping the balls" and she didn't know what I was talking about. To me this seemed perfectly logical and it took me a few minutes to actually wake up and realize I was being a complete idiot. Those dreams happen all the time and now my parents and roommates at college just go with it till I wake up and figure out what's going on. I also have frequent migraines and it's driving me crazy but I haven't had one as bad as the emergency room incident since then. Are these things connected? Should I be worried and do you know what might be wrong with me?
