Headache is one of the most frequently encountered problem

Headache is one of the most frequently encountered problem
Headache

Headache is one of the most frequently encountered problem at a clinic. Even questions at lybrate are mostly studded with this symptom.
More often than not, headaches are self limiting and without a serious medical problem. But any chronic headache needs proper evaluation for definitive therapy.
Grossly, headaches can be divided into primary (no definite structural lesion in brain) or secondary (associated with changes).
Any headache, if associated with vomiting without nausea, visual disturbance or nerve deficit (new onset squint, double vision, loss of sensation anywhere, facial deviation amongst many) may indicate secondary headache, but exceptions are there. These require immediate attention to rule out life threatening disease.
Commonest primary headache is tension type headache all of us have felt at certain times. Often it is like a band pressing around forehead. Common analgesics manage them well but for recurrent problem, we might prescribe prophylactic drug.
Migraine is something very common presenting as pain in one half of head with vomiting, nausea, visual or auditory aura. They require immediate analgesic like acetaminophen and prophylaxis with propranolol or amitriptyline.
Cluster headache, as the name suggests, comes in cluster for few days and more common in male. Oxygen has been proven as effective treatment.
Trigeminal neuralgia is more sharp, lanceolating pain, but responds satisfactorily to carbamazepine.
Sinusitis, in frontal bone presents as headache more around 10am in the morning that requires therapy with antihistamines and antibiotics occasionally.
Therefore' headache' carries little value unless it is described in detail to ensure proper therapy.

That Sir, my wife aged 46 years had undergone brain tumor surgery in Kolkata on 23rd February, 2012. Tumor was detected in the IVth Ventricle (Ependymoma) of her brain after conducting CT Scan and MRI tests. Biopsy of the tumor extracted during surgery showed WHO Grade II. Due to brain tumor surgery, she has developed double and blurred vision. VEP test was carried out as per the advice of a senior ophthalmologist but nothing fruitful result was achieved. She even cannot attend her normal daily routine and most of the time urinal occurs on bed. One Assistant is always required to look after her. She even cannot move freely and cannot stand on her own feet for attending nature�s call, taking food and medicines of her own etc. Etc. If she is forced to walk with the help of any Assistant, she complains of headache and other problems and easily starts sweating. In the mean time, several doctors were contacted and medicines were prescribed and consumed but no successful result could be obtained. Dr. , Neurosurgeon of , Kolkata was also contacted and he prescribed PACITANE tab. To be taken twice daily in July, 2014 which she took for a number of days but it yielded no result. He advised for MRI. A fresh MRI was conducted on 30.09. 2014 (MRI Report enclosed) which shows that there is small enhancing recurrent tumor in aqueductal region. Enhancing dural thickening at left front-temporo-parietal region. Furthermore, Dr. Consultant Neurosurgeon, Hospital.

My child fall down often. Her head getting hid. Due to this in future will he face any problem ?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
Was she unconscious after fall, for any time, it may few minutes or hours did she have any vomiting after the fall any headache after fall. If your answer is no to above questions, then it is unlikely that she has had a head injury to be very sure, see a neurologist and get an mri scan done if advised.

Good afternoon. I've been seeing some very slight shadows/outlines beside objects since 3 days ago and I'm very worried about it. My vision has always been perfect and I've done a brain scan 5 months ago (for other reasons), and it was normal. But since this weird vision symptom started, I've been worrying if it can be caused by some serious problem in the brain. Is it possible that, though I have a recent brain scan with normal results, this vision problem can be caused by some serious brain problem? I've been to a neurologist yesterday, and she said that this vision problem couldn't be caused by any serious brain condition because in 5 months a serious thing wouldn't develop enough to make me have vision symptoms like this. She said I didn't need to do another brain scan. But I'm still worried about being a brain tumor that could have developed in 5 months that's causing these slight shadows, because they are still very slight, so I'm worried the shadows could be not so bad yet because the problem could be in the beginning. I have severe anxiety and my neurologist said I should blame these vision symptoms on it, but I'm still very worried, as these shadows/outlines are scary. You think I should do another brain scan? Or is my neurologist right? Thank you.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Development of a tumour in five months time is very rare phenomena and your neurologist seems right in saying that. As you say you have been seeing shadows around objects only since 3 days, I wonder are these symptoms all the time or you see them once a while. If you see them all time, you should see a ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked too. I hope that will resolve your anxiety too.
