Brief Answer: MIGRAINE Detailed Answer: Dear Mr. XXXXXXX XXXX Hello, My best wishes for a speedy recovery. I have gone through your medical history in detail. You’re having pain in nape of neck along with migraine, on regular medication. May I suggest you 1. Continue taking medications as advised by your doctor 2. Check with MRI brain to rule out any intracranial organic lesion. 3 Check with your MRI CERVICAL SPINE to rule out any cervical cause of your headache . 4 Destress yourself if you’re too busy/stressed . Do some destressing /yoga/medication. All these help in reducing frequency of headaches. 5. Check your blood pressure regularly to see if hypertension is the cause of your headache. 6. AVOID HEAVY/OILY MEALS esp. during night. 7 Keep a gap of about 2 hours between dinner & going to bed. 8 Check your eyes for any refractory errors . Hope all this will relieve your headaches & reduce its frequency & severity. Thanx Dr XXXXXXX k XXXXXXX Director Deptt. of neurosurgery
