Proceed with your queries.
I get serious headache in case i delay having food for some time from my normal timings. Is this normal?
It is not normal, however you are not the only person who has such complaints.
There are many individuals suffering with chronic headache complain of such problems.
Hope this answers your query.
Do you have any clarifications?
NO...thanks for the response....But isnt there any solution for this?
Yes, there is a solution available.
If such headaches are not very frequent
and occurring once in while, a simple pain killer taken as soon as possible will nullify the pain.
However if the symptoms are very frequent and troubling your daily activities
prophylactic medicines can be started.
These prophylactic medicines need to be taken every day. And to remind you, the drugs are found helpful after a period of few weeks.
So it is the frequency of such headaches and the severity of pain that decides whether or not you should be put on these prophylactic medicines.
If you feel the headaches are very troubling and very frequent, the next step is to see a general physician/neurologist to get those prophylactic medicines prescribed.
