Hi,

You need to keep a track of your blood pressure. If acetaminophen or Ibuprofen are not effective more potent analgesic like Tramadol and Naproxen should be used alone or in combination. If pain persists a neurologist review to look for signs of increased intracranial pressure etc may be done post Misoprostol etc.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Regards,
Dr. Saddiq Ulabidin, General & Family Physician
