Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Okay so I've been having slight dull pains on the top of my head. Could it be from stress, bad teeth, or sinus' or anything of that sort?
Doctor :   Is there any nose block, is the pain going into your teeth?
User :   I've been congested for about 5 weeks. And as for the pain in my teeth, I don't really have any but I do have alot of cavities and my wisdom teeth are growing in sideways.
Doctor :   Any injury recently on the head?
User :   Nope
Doctor :   It could be either of the cause but there is nothing much to worry about. I suggest that you take a Tab. Paracetamol 500mg after food whenever the pain is severe.
Doctor :   Also do repeated steam inhalation with a FEW DROPS OF MENTHOL OIL or xxxxx caps
Doctor :   This should be done at least thrice a day as this will drain the sinuses, relieve the nose block and reduce the headache.
Doctor :   As for the wisdom teeth, there is nothing to worry much as the pain will come down gradually. But it is better to get it checked out with a dentist once as you have cavities
Doctor :   and they may need treatment. Also the dentist will check whether the wisdom tooth is impacted (stuck) or not.
Doctor :   Are you with me xxxxx?
