What causes chronic headache at the back of head?

My daughter 15 yrs old has been having headaches at the back of her head for last 3-4 days. A month ago she had mild jaundice bilirubin 2.9 , feels week, eats normal food and has resumed normal activity. She has been prescribed Emset and pacimol for the headaches for next 5 days... And also an eye check up. Any other opinion would be welcome. Is there any specific cause for the headache at the back of her head?

Hi,

First of all, your daughter should do Liver function tests, stool analysis and CBC to know the cause of jaundice. The appearance of headache and /or jaundice before or after the fall of menstrual blood can give us a significant clue for the accurate diagnosis.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dr/Mustafa, Neurologist
