Posted on Mon, 7 Aug 2017 in Headache and Migraines
Question: Hi Doctor,

I am having severe headache since 3 days. It generally starts in daytime and by evening it goes off.
Sometimes it is in front half of head and today I am feeling in back part mostly. Yesterday evening it went off but when when I was bending my body down then I was feeling heaviness and little headache as if there is some pressure due to bending.

I use spectacles also.
Which department of doctors should be consulted in this scenario?

I have not taken any medication for this.

Thanks,
Harshita
