Suggest treatment for throbbing headache with nausea

default
Posted on Fri, 3 Jun 2016
Question: I have been having this dull pulsating throbbing in the centre of the head for almost two weeks.
I also burp a lot.
I used to eat raw garlic to control my cholesterol but have stopped as I associated it to my burping and headache. even after stopping for four days, the head throbbing is not going.
I do not have it through out the day but most of the day especially in the evenings.
I have shown myself to an ENT specialist and he finds everything ok.
my BP is normal 130/82 and my cholesterol is 217
what could be wrong?

I do not have nausea. I just burp a lot for most of the day.
the burps don't taste bad but are loud and sometimes noisy,
is that the reason for the head throbbing. I hope there is nothing serious
one more issue the throbbing is pulsating.

Nothing serious , get treatment as advised from a neurologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
There is nothing serious. For burping you can take omeprazole with domperidone. Avoid too much tea and coffee.
Throbbing and pulsating are same.
Get treated as advised.
Visit and follow up to a neurologist will be helpful.
