How tall is he? How much does he weigh? On a scale of 0-10, what is it with 0 being no pain? What is it like? How often a month? How long does it last? Does anything make it better or worse? Any symptoms just before the headaches start? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications? Any family medical history?
What tests did he have with the neurologist?
Exactly where were the headaches? Band-like pain? Pulsating pain?
He seems to have tension headaches. He should try low dose amitriptyline since he has frequent episodic or chronic tension headaches and simple analgesics such as Advil and Tylenol are ineffective.
