This is Dr. David

I am sorry your mom had a bad experience with the ambulance trip to the ER.

hopefully she can get to the neurologist soon.

hopefully at the ER she had a brain MRI scan or CT scan to look for other causes of headaches.

hopefully she won't have to go back to the ER anymore.

what medical questions can I help you answer?
