Hi doctor,

My mother is very ill for three days. She has headache which hurts her very badly. She also has dizziness. Kindly give me a good solution for this problem. Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.

I am sorry to hear about the condition of your mother. The problem of headache can occur due to many reasons. It is necessary to check her blood pressure and her eyesight first. If any of the one is abnormal, it is good to treat them accordingly. If there is a history of migraine and if the headache is because of it, you can give her tab Naxdom 500 once or twice a day. If it is severe, you can give tablet Headset once or twice a day provided that she does not have a history of heart disease. If the problem gets relieved, you need to rule out the cause of migraine and the triggering agent. It can occur due to stress, noise, sunlight and due to empty stomach. So, she needs to avoid these triggering agents. If, she gets these headaches quite often, then she needs to take regular medication to treat the problem of headache. If the headache occurs due to cold and due to seasonal changes, she can take tablet Paracetamol 625 mg three times a day and it gets settled in a day or two. Please give a follow up after three days to know her condition. I hope that this helped you.
