Hi Bcanar,

Your Problems are three:
1. Diabetes Mellitus....diagnosed and on treatment. If you tell your recent Glycosylated Hemoglobin
HbA1C, value we can know how much control you have achieved with treatment.

2. High Blood Pressure, you have not written whether your are being suspected for coronary artery
disease or treated for it. Your presence in ICU hides more than it reveals about coronary artery
disease. You will have to elaborate. You have concentrated on third.

3. Headache, like chest pain or dizziness, has many causes. There are two types of headaches:
primary headaches and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are not associated with
(caused by) other diseases. Examples of primary headaches are migraine headaches, tension
headaches, and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by associated diseases
such as brain tumors, strokes, meningitis, subarachnoid hemorrhages (normal CT has excluded
some of these causes), caffeine withdrawal, or discontinuation of analgesics. In rare occasions,
headaches may signal heart attacks.

Establishing the diagnosis of the headache, arriving at effective treatment(s) for the headache, and taking measures to prevent or reduce headache episodes will require cooperation between you and your doctor. Following are suggestions on how to work with your doctor in diagnosing and managing your headaches.

How Can I Help My Doctor or even Health Care Magic to come up with some suggestions?

Pay attention to your symptom(s) so you can describe your condition as accurately as possible:

1.What are your headache location, duration, severity (worst ever headache?), and character (dull, sharp, throbbing, etc.)?
2.What brings them on (for example, certain foods, stress, bright light, fasting or anything else)

After you have written all the details, it is not possible to go beyond this.

Looking forward to get a mail from you.

Best Wishes.

Dr Anil Grover,
M.B.;B.S, M.D. (Internal Medicine) D.M.(Cardiology)
