Hello sorry to know about her state! I would advised please consult a psychologist and seek therapy as in such cases venting out pent up emotions and releasing what's emotionally troubling can be of big help. A psychologist can understand the thought pattern and help her release her feelings. Therapy can do wonders in such a state. All her physical troubles seem to be an outbursts of her emotional state and the could be many reasons or situations behind it. So please consult a psychologist so that he can get relief from her state. Relaxation exercises can be of big help. Help her to do pranayam and practice yoga for relaxation. Hope she feels better soon! god bless her with health and healing!
Dear, it is nice of you to show concern about this medico. Since she is already on treatment with a doctor, please see that she regularly takes these tablets. She might stop it as soon she is better and thus having another episode. Please avoid pain killers for this headache. Let it be diagnosed properly by a psychiatrist or neurologist. It may be due to her depression itself or tension headache. After diagnosing, the appropriate treatment will be suggested.
Mood stabilizer lamotrigine should be used.
