So describe the headache please. Is it one sided ? How long the episodes last ? Any visual symptoms ? Constipation ? Sleeps well or not ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
At first she had tunnel vision, but no headache at first. Then she got a terrible headache, nausea, and vomiting. It is not just one sided, she said it is all over her head.
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 4 months ago.

Ok whats her age ? Is it the first episode of such headache or she has had in the past too ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
She is 11 and this is her first one
Expert:  Dr.Saleem replied 4 months ago.

Give her acetaminophen for headache. But the cause needs to be evaluated. She needs an imaging of brain to rule out anything sinister. You will need to visit your doctor for that if this headche doesnt inprove with the medication. She can take ibuprofen too.
