not much need to consult a doctor

Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

As you told this is first attack of headache you had that too following a stressful argument so no need to worry . Sometimes stress cause headache. So no much need to consult a doctor.

By one attack of headache it can't be labelled as migraine. Migraine is diagnosed by exclusion of other headache causes like visual disturbance , sinusitis etc.

I would suggest you to watch for one more attack. If you get then show to a physician and get the reason for frequent headaches and further treatment.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Regards

Brief Answer:
you need to consult your doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

After reading details about that attack i would suggest you to consult your doctor/neurophysician. It is confirmed it is migraine attack only. As you had a severe attack and you may be put on flunarzine prophylaxis to prevent further attacks.

Since you had severe attack and have family history there are more chances of getting frequent attacks further.

For acute attack you may take naproxen with domperidone tablet. In my previous answer I didn't advice consultation because I didn't knew the severity and family history and also that you are known migraine sufferer.

Hope I have answered your query .

I was vomiting all night, then diarrhea, fever(99.7) and then leg halves. I ve taken aleve, generic imodian. The fever has gone down, diarrhea gone but I still have the itchy leg halves. The halves are starting to appear on my arms now. I am out of town, should I go to a clinic? The only thing I can eat is water and crackers.

If Naproxen has damaged my kidneys and Tylenol is bad for my liver what type of pain meds are available for me? I am said to have several chronic conditions which Docs seem to think or they claim once thought were in people s heads, which I don t understand, but I m only a teacher with a BS and a MS who suffers from spinal degeneration, narrowing of the spine, bulges at L1 and L2 and recently L4 and L5 up until Oct. 2013 when an attempt was made to correct these imaginary disc bulges. I suffer daily sinus headaches docs say they see something in there but there s nothing they can do about it. I have bursitis they tell me, which at times calls for a long needle to be jabbed into my hip and, there s nothing imaginary about that. They tell me I have Gerd so I imagine that s that burning sensation that come up in my chest and throat when I miss taking my omeprazole. I wonder if something like that could have led to my moms and her only sister s esophageal cancer? Or it could be the hiatal hernia or the unspecified intestinal disease they told me I have. You know I thought after that surgery while I was in rehab I was feeling better then I had in years and then I went home. The very next day I was back in the emergency room oh I forgot before I left the rehab a sore started to form at the surgical site and it began to bleed a little but no one was alarmed, especially not me I had had at least 8 abdominal surgeries before, one of them had to ripped back open due to infection (my C-section) the other burst back open when I was made to get up and too soon I thought, after my hysterectomy when I became dizzy and fell while walking down the hospital hallway. This was different this was something I had never heard of and probably would not have if I had died you see doc the people in the emergency room sent me home with a tube of cream, never contacted my surgeon it was her day off never advised a follow-up with her, oh I guess they knew I would not need one. But because I had home health care they took me to their hospital and a week later from the doctor s office I was rushed into surgery stat still didn t know what was wrong and two operations later after efforts to get my blood pressure stabilized I was then told I had contracted something called MRSA. I was on antibiotics for months and sick as hell for months one infection in the body after another in various places I won t name. Finally I was treated for a terrible bronchitis that would only go away with a protocol of prednisone and antibiotics used to treat pneumonia. So back to my original what type of pain meds are safe for me? Thank you in advance if you can answer my question and God bless.

Yes I have been taking Aleve for joint pain and it was very effective but recently I have been getting nose bleeds. I am thinking this has to do with the Aleve so I have stopped taking it. Does MegaRed joint care have anything in it that will also cause my nose to bleed?

Hi,
I am a 36 yr old female who over the past 15 years have had about 6 uti's I also have a history of kidney stones. June 17th I awoke with symptoms of urgency and frequency. I took an at home uti test and the results were neg. I assumed I must have a stone passing as I have found this to be a cause of the urgency and frequency in the past. I continued testing every few days for the next few weeks and took azo standard as needed and expected the flank pain of a kidney stone which never presented although I did have aching middle back pain. After 3 ½ weeks my symptoms worsened until I went to the er on July 10. They examined me and sent me for 2 ct scans first without contrast 2nd with. The ct scans showed a non obstructing 3mm stable stone in my rt kidney that has remained unchanged since a ct scan in 2008, but no other problems. They ran a urinalysis as well as a cbc. My urine was postitive for nitites, but only trace wbc and a 1+protein (not sure what that means). My cbc showed an elevated wbc of 17 which lead them to believe I had a bad infection. The gave me IV antibiotics and keflex pills to take 4x a day for 7 days which I finished the following Sunday meanwhile my culture came back as gram positive for mixed flora ( I don't know what that means.) My symptoms improved but did not go away after 4 days after starting the antibiotics, so I went to a walk in urgent care facility, their dip stick test was neg. and when they cultured my urine sample there was no sign of infection. I then saw a Urologist who reviewed my ct scans and preformed an ultrasound as well. He saw no obstructions or reasons for my symptoms and told me I have inflammation left from the infection and gave me a 2 week sample of toviaz and to come back in one month in and he will run a test to make sure my bladder is empting completely. I took one Toviaz that night and the following morning the pain of urgency was much worse so I went back to the er. They ran another urinalysis and said it looked good and the cbc showed my white blood cell count was down to 14 which they were very happy about. They gave me iv fluids and torradol to help with inflammation as well as a script for naproxen. I have not taken the toviaz since and still feel symptoms. The duration of the symptoms seem to have improved slightly as I will have a few hours a day that I am almost symptom free. I also had my yearly exam with my ob/gyn last week, everything was normal and after I relayed my expirences with her she said I might have IC, which has really scared me. I'm not sure what to do now and although I have been trying not to take azo I did take one this morning (after 4 days without) for unbearable symptoms. I have not gone back on the toviaz as I am afraid it worsened my symptoms before and am terrified of going through even more pain. Could you please advise me as to what could be going on and how I should proceed? Could this really be left over inflammation? I am also very curious as to what the protein in my urine could mean and why the at home uti test results were neg? I am also not sure why the urologist gave me medicine for an over active bladder? Also is it safe to take Azo standard on an occasional basis?
Thank you,
Christy
