Hello,

If EEG, MRI normal, as you said, then this is a either a functional problem or migraine and not any organic cause. Give her Sumatriptan during severe pain. To prevent pain, give amitriptyline.

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

Regards,
Dr. Diwashish Biswas, Internal Medicine Specialist
