My mom is 47 yrs old. I m worried about her memory problems and constant headaches . She usually cant remember things of past and sometimes even recent events. She says its as if certain things have just been deleted from her memory. She forgets where she kept her keys n other items frequently. Then there are the constant headaches which sometimes are severe n symptomatic of migraine . She had a CT scan done but it brought up nothing. Am i being paranoid or is it really a cause for worry??

I have constant headaches . I get a headache at least once a day, sometimes more than once. And they hurt very bad. I take OTC Excedrin , and it only helps for a couple hours. I have had no change in diet , sleep, caffeine, or anything. I ve had the constant headaches for a couple months now. I m not sure what could be wrong.

doctor1 MD

Dear
it seems the way you describe it that you are suffering from chronic daily headache
You should take contact with your neurologist, schedule a brain CT scan and then start treatment to avoid daily headache
Don't worry it is fully treatable
Regards

Though they are not associated with headaches as side effect, the headache can be attributed to any other cause like...

I am 75.8 years, and on 6 May 2011, had PTCA and stenting of proximal LAD done with 3mm x 33mm Bio-flex DES after thrombus aspiration and predialation with 2.75mm ballon. D1 was crossed with Fielder FC and dialted with a 2mm balloon before stenting LAD. LAD stent post dilated with 3.25mm balloon at 18-24ATM with good result. Left Ostium looked hazy with slow clearance. A 4mm x 15mm promos DES was deployed and post dialted with a 4.5mm NC balloon at 18 to 24 ATM. Final angio showed TIMI 3 flow with TMP grade 3 in the lad and no residual stenosis in either of the vessels. CADRF: Mild dyslipidemia. TMT on 7 Sept. 13: - 8 min 12 secs. 107% HR, No ST changes. TMT on 15 Aug. 14: 6 min 20 secs. Mild ST depression at peak but none during recovery. A/P: CAD S/p LMCA and LAD stenting in 2011 for acute MI now stable angina - new and mildly abnormal TMT. I am on following medicines since 26 My 2014: T Ceruvin 75 mg 1 ---0 0 T Ecosprin 75 mg 0 1 0 T Crestor 10 mg 0 0 1 T Monotrate SR 30 mg 1 0 1 T Sleoram 50/5 1 0 1 Pantadac 40 mg 1 0 0 Besides the above medicines, I have been suggested to undergo another angeogram,at convenience,as the TMT indicates minimal abnormality. I led very regular and active life till 2011 and never suffered from any major problem. I hate taking too many medicines. Even after retirement from WHO, in 1998, I continued working with them on ad hoc basis till December 2010. My question is: With host of preventive meidcines I am taking,is another angeogram required? With medicines my BP has also stabilized now. Also since I was put on Monotrate SR 30mg. I am having almost constant headache though tolerable, started passing urine at least four time during night, feel exhausted which some time obstructs my evening/morning walk and yoga, besides loss of and irregular sleep pattern. I shall thank you for your considered opinion which would certainly help me lead a confortable and medicine-free life. Thanks and with regards, Yours sincerely, N.C. Kochhar

Hi. I m a 33 year old female who 8 weeks ago fainted in work whilst having a migraine. This has happened before so I was not that concerned. However, roughly 4 weeks later, I fainted again. This time no migraine. I assumed due to it being around my period, it was due to that. However the last two weeks I ve had constant headaches at different places on the head. I ve been constantly dizzy and on times almost fainted. I ve been to see my doctor who s sent me for blood tests and an ECG. All tests came back fine. He did say my blood pressure was low but it always has been so didn t think that would be anything to do with it. I ve suffered with migraines for about 6 years but never had headaches or dizzy spells as bad as this. For the past 4 days I ve nearly blacked out every day and the back of my neck and bottom of head feel like there s loads of pressure. This feeling of nearly blacking out happened in front of the doctor and he said that it could be because the room we were in was really warm, that I was dehydrated. He also said that I maybe suffering with vestibular migraines. I ve looked up the condition and the blacking out every day and I m still not sure that this is what I have. I m concerned about the headaches and the constant dizziness which has just appeared all of a sudden.

When I run it beats normally, but if I do a simple task it goes crazy also I start to feel like I'm going to faint. What do you think it is?
