Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 23-year-old female of height 5 feet 5 inches, and weight 170 lbs. My last period ended two weeks ago. The flow was not as it usually would be. Since my period ended, I have been suffering from headaches. Today, I had an itchy nipple. Is this normal after a periods? Currently, I am not on any medications, but I do take Ibuprofen for my headaches. Kindly look at my condition and advice me accordingly.

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com

I understand the condition. You need not worry about it. To treat and avoid recurrence of your headaches, do neck, back, and shoulder exercises regularly. I would suggest deep breathing exercises along with eyes exercises, sitting in the proper position, and correct posture.

In case of more headaches, I suggest tablet Naproxen 250 mg and Domperidone 10 mg, one tablet twice a day for five days. For fitness, I would suggest tablet Revital H Women (vitamin and mineral supplement), one tablet every day for six weeks.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
