Doctor:Are you still having cold?
User:very mild.
Doctor:Any sorethroat?
User:little..not much
Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:It is very common to have such mild symptoms post flu infections.
Doctor:However since you also have mild fever and sorethroat, these headaches may be related to sinusitis (maxillary sinusitis).
User:Just to elaborate my head ache... it starts at back of the head just above neck
Doctor:I don't feel the numbness is any way related. However I would suggest you to keep a watch.
Doctor:If the headache is more at the back, then it is not from maxillary sinusitis.
User:always it's starting at the back of head
Doctor:I suggest you continue dart along with steam inhalation for couple of days and see if there is any improvement.
User:Sure Dr
Doctor:If the symptoms don't improve, then you need to see a doctor for examination.
Doctor:I would perform some blood test and x-ray / CT scan then.
Doctor:How many dart tablets are you taking in a day?\
Doctor:If the headache is persistent throughout the day, I would instead suggest you take tab. Dolo 650mg three or four times a day.
