Betacap is safe to use in paediatric age group and it's a common medicine given for headache in children. Don't worry about it but you have to follow your consultant 's advice.

Before jumping to exercises, better to find out the cause. Shoulder pain may come from shoulder joints, muscles of shoulder, cervical spines, neck muscles. Repetitive Strain Injury is a common cause for these kind of pain. So she need clinical examinations to find out the cause for the shoulder pain then only the specific exercises will be given. One common suggestion- You have to keep your computer minimum of 20 inches away from body, 20 degree dowmward inclination from your eye level.

Headaches is, however, one of the most common medical problems and can affect a person’s social life, school/office work, and overall quality of life. The pain in the head is caused by a problem in the nerve supply, blood supply, muscles, or other tissues in the brain/head region. The common types of headaches Sinus headaches: The exact location of the headache can depend on the sinus affected, but there is also fever, heaviness in the head, shortness of breath and congestion. Migraines: Usually running in families, migraines are characteristic in being one-sided, throbbing pain that is associated with sensitivity to light and noise, nausea and vomiting. These can last from 4 to 72 hours and can be preceded by an aura. People with migraines, after some trial and error, identify the best medication that works for them and use it when the aura sets in. They should also avoid light and sound if they are sensitive. Tension headaches: There is a feeling of tension or pressure around the head in the area of the head and neck. The discomfort is not as disabling as migraines and there are no associated symptoms. Regular pain killers like aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen are usually effective. Rebound headaches: When a person uses too much painkillers to manage aches and pains, they can rebound and cause headache. This can be a withdrawal symptom as the dose of the medicine level drops and subsides over a period of time. While most headaches are self-limiting, if there are associated symptoms like increased frequency, blurring of vision, seizures, stiff neck, fainting, coordination issues, then further investigation is immediately warranted. These could be indicative of a more serious condition like a stroke or internal hemorrhage and need immediate attention. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions.

I have pain in my sides of abdomen which radiates towards my back. Pain is not constant and changes its position sometimes in right side and most of the time in left side. Done urine test everything is normal. Wbc found so had some antibiotic medicine. Problem is still there. This is an old problem like 1-2 years old when I had kidney stones. Had done ultrasound and as per report there is no stones anymore. Pain is not severe and also goes whenever I changed my position like sometimes I felt it when am sitting and sleeping position and if I start to walk then there is relief. I am very confused why I am having this pain. Please suggest me any test related to abdomen. Feeling very irritated because of this pain. I am also feeling little numbness in my left butts and left leg. In most of time I felt this when pain in left side.
