Question: My otherwise very normal and healthy daughter got a sudden severe headache today. I had her drink some water in case she was dehydrated with all the heat. It was followed by extreme stomach ache. She had skipped breakfast so had a piece of fruit. Which seemed to make it worse. She laid down and I massaged her head. That helped and she asked for a piece of toast. Then she said she couldn't feel her finger on the R hand, then the whole hand, then her nose started tingling. That went away with some shaking but then she got a very sharp pain in her chest which only lasted less than a minute. She is 13 and resting now.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthCareMagic.com I am Dr.J XXXXXXX Anto Bruno Mascarenhas. I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help you.

Your daughter has the following symptoms
1. Sensory Loss of Right Hand Finger
2. Sensory Loss of Right Hand
3. Tingling of Nose
4. Sudden Severe Headache
5. Less than a minute Sharp pain in Chest

Symptoms 1 to 4 Suggest Raised Pressure inside the Skull due to Some Problems or TIA.She requires immediate CT Scan of Brain and Hospital Observation

Sharp Pain in Chest requires ECG or ECHO

Please Visit ER at once

It is possible that these symptoms are harmless and will go away, but we cannot take risk. It is always better to do a CT Scan Brain and ECG to make sure that there is no problem in the brain

Hope you found the answer helpful.
