the cold sweats would only be concerning if you were to then develop fever and cough which would indicate pneumonia or something like it
I'm not sure about the other part of your question
meaning 'could the two be related'... don't understand that.
Ok so it's not a sign of aneurism or stroke or other issue
no, no way
Ok, i mean im 19 i think my stroke risk would be near 0
there's no way this is a stroke
ok. do you have any insight into my headache issue?
i know headaches are symptomatic of about five million things
certainly no more insight than the physician who examined you would have
there can be many causes
at your age almost all benign
yes thats what my pediatrician and the neurologist on here said, and that my headaches could be related to hypoxia
due to my uncontrolled asthma
I doubt that seriously, you do not get hypoxic from your asthma
if you did you would be in the ER breathing on a ventilator
could the asthma be a trigger for migraine?
i have never had a migraine per se before (i had what i think was a mini-migraine a few nights ago) but my mom does get them
so that could explain the headaches
just about anything can trigger a headache or migraine
thats what i've learned. my pediatrician did blood work, came back normal. dermic allergy test returned severe allergies so his assessment is control the asthma and see if the headaches go away
if not, MRI/CT scan/etc
I think the scans can wait for the moment at least
yeah, and for what it's worth the headaches are not as omnipresent as they were originally
more acute and noticeable but when i'm really focused on something i dont seem to have them
that's a good thing
perhaps the treatment is having a good effect there
do you have any final questions for me about this?
no thats pretty much it, thanks so much for your time. really appreciate it.
