This is regarding the health of my 50 year old mother, who is not keeping well for the past six months. She has been complaining of headaches for the past five to six months, which has been constant with heaviness around her forehead and the area between the eyes and the nose. We got all the recommended tests done including a CT scan of her brain, which showed some age related cerebral atrophy and bilateral basal ganglia calcification. The doctors said that it may be a chronic tension headache, for which they gave her medicines for three months. Now, it is almost two and a half months but, there is no improvement in her condition.
For the past few days, her headache has increased and it is mostly on the forehead, eyes, and nose area. At night, her nose is severely blocked, and the heaviness of the head bothers her a lot. It is affecting her day to day life. And lastly, her condition deteriorated the day she had acidity, indigestion, and nausea. The medicines which she has been taking are Escitalopram 10 mg, Clonazepam 0.5 mg once daily, Nortriptyline 10 mg, Gabapentin 400 mg, Domperidone, Naproxen sodium for pain, and Rablet L in the morning. Apart from these, she has been under medication for hypertension for the past 10 years. They are Cilnidipine, Telmisartan and Rosuvastatin 5 mg. All her blood tests including electrolyte test, CBC, thyroid, etc., has been normal. Only her EEG had shown some changes in the theta waves after which the CT scan of her brain was done.
