Medical Case Details:
This is regarding my 50 year old mother, who is suffering from a constant heaviness around the forehead and eyes with a headache for almost eight months now. Initially, it started with a cold water sensation around her head, which later turned into heaviness around her forehead and headache. In the beginning, her doctors said that it is a normal tension headache for which she was taking Escitalopram, Gabapentin+, Nortriptyline, and Clonazepam for three to four months, but no relief was found. Later, the doctors advised her to take Divalproex Sodium, Amitriptyline and Naproxen sodium for pain, along with Felicita OD. She has been taking these for a month now, but her condition is almost the same. In the meantime, we got her CT scan brain done which showed cerebral atrophy with basal cell ganglia calcification. We also got her EEG done, which showed some discrepancies in theta waves. The heaviness around her forehead stays for three to four days, then disappears for a few days and comes back again. This causes her a difficulty in focussing on things. We have consulted an ENT and an ophthalmologist, to rule out sinus and eye problems. All her blood tests including the complete hemogram, electrolyte tests, and typhoid test are normal. This problem is mostly associated with acidity and sometimes with a rise in BP. She has been under medication for hypertension and high cholesterol for the past 10 years. She takes Rabeprazole every morning. I want to know the correct diagnosis and is there anything else we can do to improve her condition? Thanks.
