Dear Mr. Pashkin,
Thanks for the query. It will be my endeavor to reply to your satisfaction.
Aspirin/blood thinners are NOT ROUTINELY recommended as preventive treatment unless there is a definite indication, such as, coronary artery disease.
I cannot hazard a guess why you would like to take Aspirin as a preventive measure. if you have some ailment, write back to us.
i have nape pain and checkd my bp.its 130/100 what meds to take? or food and drinks to lower my bp? does gren tea w/ lemon can help or pineapple juice? aspirin?
Your BP is slightly raised but no treatment would be started on the basis of a single reading. Take rest, repeat BP and if higher than 140/90, see doctor. Particular food and drinks will not actively lower BP but may help you relax. Aspirin will not lower BP

Im going on day 3 of a headache. Ive taken aspirin, Advil, hot baths - nothing seems to help. Its a sharp stinging pain at the base of my skull on the left side
sharp stinging pain not relieved by medication especially at 62 years of age may suggest pain of vascular origin. Immediate consultation with a neurologist and baseline ct scan of head is advisable, followed by angiography, if indicated.
