Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. These spasms could be stress or cluster headaches, which are quite common and they respond to regular analgesics. But considering you history of breast & lung cancer, it is better that you have these symptoms evaluated by a neurologist and get a CT scan of the brain to rule out cancer before starting medications for these headaches. These headaches are probably not related to the Parkinson's you are suffering from.

Hoping fro the best. Please feel free to clarify any other queries.

Just a thank you for Dr Khandelwal. I had a CT scan, clear an MRI clear and PET, clear. I hadnt considered cluster headaches, but you put my fears at rest. I am still under my oncologist care. Thank you

Dear Ma'am,

It is good to know that the tests came back as negative. You should consult a neurologist for the headaches.

Hoping for the best.
