Most sex headaches are nothing to worry about. But some can be related to problems with the blood vessels of brain. Also with use of some medications, such as birth control pills. Magnetic resonance angiography (mra) and computerized tomography (ct) angiography may diagnose. Some medications may be taken daily to prevent sex headaches. They're recommended only if she has frequent or prolonged attacks. These are anti-migraine medications and can be taken an hour before sex to prevent headaches.

Dear Viraj, General Anxiety disorder treatment consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, You will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

I am 62 plus. About 12 years back I had a road accident in which there was no serious external injury but I had a flat fall on the road and at that time felt that my spine was fractured because I was not even able to breath properly. After helped by bystanders, gathered courage and with very great difficulty drove back to my home which was 23 kms. After overdose of pain killers, hot fomentation and analgesic massage, I recovered within 3 days and was back on normal routine work. But after that I developed trembling in my hands, when I am under pressure or even a slight tension or anxiety. Gradually it increased and now at times when I am in hurry to do something or to go some where or have even a little pressure apart from hands I feel mild shiver in my whole body and in such situation I feel difficulty in putting my signatures properly. But I drive car without any difficulty even under tremendous pressure when my whole body appears to be not under my conrol. I use to brisk walk for about 5 kms and sprint running for about 500 mts and also some breathing exercise. I am not diabetic. However little hypertensive. No other pathology. Am I developing parkinson? is it curable or otherwise?

If the tremors have appeared after the accident, then you could be suffering from depressive/anxiety illness. But if the tremors are not related to the accident, then it is called benign essential tremors. Visit a psychiatrist/and or a neurologist for effective treatment.

Hi . The head and body proportion is based on the genetic make up and depends on the dna and family genes. It can also be contributed by the events during childhood growth.
