Customer Question
My son has been suffering...
My son has been suffering from headaches on and off for the past 3-4 months. Advil and Tylenol don't help. He was headache free for a month and came down with fevers and a cold 2 weeks ago and the headaches came back alongside his fever but persisted for 8 days after fever. He finally had relief after playing soccer yesterday but went on a trampoline today and had shooting pains in the front part of his forehead.

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?

He's 4 feet 3 inches 56 pounds. He says its about a 6. He had it for 2 weeks and was headache free for the few weeks before he got sick. No symptoms, but will wake in the morning at times and cry. We moved from US to Ireland in August. My husband had really bad tension headaches two months ago but never before. No known medical issues , meds or family hx
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Took him to neurologist two weeks ago and he thought it was stress related because they had gone away for 3-4 weeks. But he was sick with fevers and he does babe tenderness on his cheeks (so possibly sinus). Little congestion as well.
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 2 years ago

What tests did he have with the neurologist?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No tests. His headaches were gone when we went and were just back that morning with a fever
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
He didn't seem concerned to do mri or whatever type of scan they do because the headaches come and go.
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 2 years ago

Exactly where were the headaches? Band-like pain? Pulsating pain?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Across Forehead. Not sure about pulsating
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 2 years ago

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.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
