Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have a migraine type headache on the left side of my head and it also stiffens my left neck muscles. I have this headache recurring many times a day. I also have problems with digestion and nausea. I am unable to sleep well at the night time. When I sleep in the morning, I still have a headache. What should I do? Headache triggers when I listen to music.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Indigestion and constipation can also be related to a headache. So treat your indigestion problem with Rabeprazole tablet for five days. Simethicone tablet can be used for the gas problem. Tablet or sachet is available, and it can be taken after dissolving in water. Drink more water. Fruit juice and fiber diet can be taken more. Whole grains, fruits, green leafy vegetables can be taken more. In a migraine, if the pain is unilateral, throbbing in nature, you can take tablet Ibuprofen to get relief.

Consult your physician for examination if needed.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
