Thank you for your question.
You did the right thing by going to the GP.
Your GP needed to refer you to a neurologist to get a scan done.
If your symptoms are severe you can go to the emergency as well.
Meanwhile for the pain you can take over-the-counter ibuprofen 400 mg one tablet three times daily.
It is highly unlikely that you have any burst vessel in your brain.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Rate me for my services when you are done asking.
