Brief Answer: get plain CT scan of brain done Detailed Answer: Hello, Headaches at this frequency is not a good sign. In my view, you should be getting a plain CT scan of the brain to rule out organic brain lesions. Hence, please go ahead with it. It is also better to be evaluated by a Medical Neurologist to look into the underlying cause for your headache. You also seem to have frequent knee pain. This can be due to low calcium or osteoarthritis. Please get a serum calcium test done along with Vitamin D levels. Meanwhile, you can start yourself on Tablet Shelcal HD once daily. This is calcium supplement that is available over the counter. Continue to take crocin when the headache is severe. Wish you good health.
