Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

No I never felt that pain before it was the first time and no nausea after at all

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of I am female age 49 and my period ended yesterday and started back again today after I had the shooting pain in my head it's just a lite brown color now but after it happened it was pink I don't know whether that has anything to do with it but I thought I would tell u wat happened after

No tenderness in my neck but have a headache and my back hurts around the mid top
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no meds I take regularly

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, you have strained muscles.

And I would advise you to take OTC Advil 400 mg every 6 hourly.

Your pink discharge would resolve in next 2 days.

Maintain a good hydration.

Also, do gentle massage with topical diclofenac sodium ointment on back and neck.

Do gentle stretching.

Warm compresses can be helpful.

Take rest and avoid any vigorous physical activities.

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
