Thank you Doctor. Steam has given some relief. Applying preasure at the forehead between eyes also gives relief. But, she feels pain again after some time. She had similar compliant 5-6 years ago for which an ENT specialist treated her and got it cured. Unfortunately, we lost those prescriptions to upload here and do not remember what the reason was back then. In case no relief this night, we will see a doctor tomorrow.
