Brief Answer:

Lifestyle modification

Detailed Answer:


What is your BP, Fasting blood sugar, height and weight? Are you obese? Betacam was prescribed by a doctor, is it? What for?
Is DOLO helping your headaches?

If no, you can switch to better painkiller like FLEXON or GRAIL, one tablet.

You should adopt one regular exercise and one flexible activity. Regular exercise should be for 45 min a day, any form, cycling, cardio, swimming, dance. Flexible depends on your time availability like Yoga, Meditation.

This will definitely help improve the coping mechanisms against stress and headache.
