Suffering from head pain after having a accident, but all the reports are normal

Hello Sir, my brother has been suffering from headache pain. Actually around 1.5 years ago during working in his office he had fell down and his head crashed on the rotating machine. But spending 6-7 months of this incidents he has suddenly started head pain complaint. We have gone through the medical treatment , shown to many doctors, done all the medical check-ups, tests, X-rays, all the neuro related check-ups but every time report comes normal. Nothing could have been found in the medical reports so far. Every time doctors says that this is normal and no need to worry but he has still suffering from the pain. I can experience that he has been facing unbearable pain, not continuously but into small pieces of time. He has been taking medicine as prescribed by doctor but getting not much benefitted. Could you please tell us about this and guide us for the better treatment.

If all the test reports including x-ray;CT scan;and neurological reports are normal then the headache can be either a Migraine or of psychological origin.Please consult a Neurophysician to find he proper reason.Once the diagnosis is made it can be treated with the required medicines.

Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Headache can be because of many causes. But, it is very commonly noticed that the problem is attributed to some head injury (even trivial) which occured before the onset of headache. In your brother's case, headache is unlikely to be related to fall for two reasons. One reason is the time gap between the fall and onset of headache (6 months) and the other reason is the investigations (which have come out normal).

Your brother should be clearly told that he may be having headache, but it is not related to head injury in anyway. A detailed evaluation by a psychiatrist should help him understand this, which is the first step in overcoming this problem.
