Psychiatrist 's  Response

I understand your concern.
If a patient come with same complain i would like to do 1st invistagation.

1st thing is require is fundas examination.

It will shows any papillodeama that suggest raise in interracial tension.
MRI brain will helpful to rule out any pressure producing lesion or space occupying lesions.

If all report come normal then we have to think about migraine or tension type headache.

stress related headache is common and more common in female.
It can be treated with medicines like amitriptilne or imipramine.

so if you have positive reports then consult neurologist otherwise considering migraine or tension type headache you have to consult psychiatrist for better evaluation.

Still have query then feel free to ask.

Thank you.
