Question: Good Morning Doctor,

I face this problem every winter. last weekend I had severe acidity and gastric problem which is still on from past 5 days due to which I am having migraine like pain on left side of my head.
As soon as I have paracetamol, PudinHara (ayurved) or Digene syrup the head ache subsides after 1 – 2hrous.

It looks like, if I intake any gas related food like potatos etc then next afternoon I'll get sever Acute head ache ( not enitre left side head but like a 'writing pen' length vein which connects to my left eye).

Could you pls suggest the treatment / cure for this.

Thanks for writing to us.
Its possible that you have migraine or vascular headache which may be accompanied with vomiting, acidity symptoms which usually occur on episodic basis. If is accompanied with eye watering, nose stuffiness then it suggests so.
Sometimes acidity may be accompanied by headache. You can take an OTC medication like Pantoprazole under the guidance of a physician . You can take Tablet paracetamol 500 mg 1 tablet 2-3 times a day for headache. Please see a neurologist if headache is persistent.
Hope this answers your query.
Please do let me know if you have any more questions.
Wish you a speedy recovery.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
