Other medical data are needed as following...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I am sorry for your mother being in pain.

Before running into final conclusions, I nee do have more of her medical data:
- how long has she had this pain?
- does she suffer of any chronic disease: hypertension, heart disease? diabetes? arthritis?
- has she experienced such pain other times?
- any other health problems she is having?

Meanwhile, until the answers are in, I advise to give her an over the counter pain-killer (acetaminophen,ibuprofen,codein) to relive the pain.

I also advise to monitor her blood pressure/sugar levels when she is having he headache episodes.

Wish fast recovery!
Dr.Albana
