Suffering from vascular headache and depression. What cure should be done?

Hello Doctor! I am of 14 and suffering from severe headache for more than 6 months. I went to the neurologist and he advised to meet psychologist and then psychiatrist as he told that I am suffering from vascular headache and depression . There is little bit relief but whenever stress is there, my head starts paining. I am an aggressive person too.

Hi DKpayasi,
Thanks for wrting your query.
It will be helpful if you give more information about :-
1. The position of the headache. Whether you feel the pain all over the head or localized to one side or part of the head.
2. Association with nausea or vomitting.
3. Associated with visual disturbances.

Migraine is one type of vascular headache which increases with stress. Other factors affecting migraine headache are :-
1. Lack of sleep
2. Heavy exercise
3. Menstural periods in females
4. Cigarrette and alcohol
5. Dairy products
6. Foods containing MSG

Some antidepressants have pain relief properties. These medicines are to be taken for prolonged periods and their effect is gradual. You should follow the advice given by your doctor.

I hope this is helpful to you.
