Question: My name is XXXXXXX and my girlfriend XXXXXXX who is 54 years old and is 5ft 2 and around 140-145lbs, who like myself, doesn't get headaches normally is having the worst headaches, making her unable to function or do ANYTHING but cry in pain. we went to the local emergency room and the CAT scan showed no unusual signs at all. They gave her a prescription of 50mg tramadol, but last night she had another REAL BAD episode it took a while for her to finally get some sleep. I was hoping if there is a specialist that I can try to get her to see, and maybe figure this out, (what type of specialty would I look for???

are you still there
