Welcome to HCM!
I have gone through your question and from that it is clear that your mother has complain of headaches
, and forehead aches, usually in half head. it is not clear from the question that wether the doctor got CT Scan
done or not.
Had I been treating your mother, I would go for an MRI Brain, thyroid
profile and her blood pressure readings. MRI brain if better in detecting any soft tissue
abnormality in brain compared to CT Scan.
It is not clear from the question that from how many days she has been having these symptoms or if she has any other illness. From my experience I can say that such headaches respond very well to combination of naproxen
sodium and domperidone
, espically if taken with in 5 minutes of onset of headache. Usually if patient takes medicine after half an hour of headache, it doesn't go completely with medicine.
At least I don't think that you need to worry too much, please get the above investigations done and if they are normal, your mother is most probably having migraneous headache. It is a common headache in females and respond greatly to propranolol
and TCA combination.
Hope the answer helps your mom!
Please feel free to ask more queries.
