Hello doctor,

My mom is suffering from a headache which we do not know the cause or solution and this is really getting out of normal. She nurture this headache like almost every day, she never for once feel completely fine for a couple of years.

Now let me list out the symptoms. The headache do cause her high blood pressure and medicine is recommended for that Aldocure. She is 47 years old and has stopped menstruating for a year now (anytime the period was supposed to come it do make the headache worsen that no drug can suppress it). The doctor here in my country recommends Cafergot tablet for the headache but the result is still the same. For high blood pressure, it happens after she has straight four days of severe headache. Please help.

You have told me that your mother has the constant headache since a couple of years. I would like to ask you that is it sure that your mother's height is 2 feet. I am a little bit confused. Your doctor prescribed good medicine according to the condition. The best treatment in the case of hemicrania continua, Indomethacin is a good choice.

The Probable causes:
