Hi, My daughter has been complaining that her forehead hurts for a while now on and off. I make sure she is drinking. She is healthy over all but has anxiety which is mostly exhibited in the school setting. Now that it is summer time, she is still complaining about it. She often complains that her knees hurt as well which I m pretty sure is not the case. I never know when to believe her as she always complains about things hurting her. Should I be concerned about the headaches?

Hi I hit my head a week ago and I slept for 14 hours that night (which is not unusual) and I ve been feeling more dizzy since then. I had a very long headache yesterday and there is a slight pain at the back of my head now... the only reason why I m concerned is because when I hit my head a week ago, I head a crack. Is it something that I should be worried about or should I just take it easy at home?
