Suggest medications for headache

My 11 yr old son has been suffering from headaches for a few years. It has become an everyday event recently and I don t want to continue giving him tylenol all the time. He also seems to get the flu once every 3 months, but no fever; not sure if this is related or not but thought it was worth mentioning. We have had his eyes tested and he does not need glasses. I m worried there is something else going on but his Dr. doesn t seem too concerned. I want him to have a MRI - should I?

Hi,

Don’t worry it is not due to post influenza sequel, since he has frequent headaches even after taking paracetamol, you should consult some neuro-physician.

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

Regards,
Dr. Parkavi Gunasekaran, General & Family Physician
