I have a horrible headache since last night. I threw up. I don't get headaches

Doctor's Assistant: When did vomiting begin? Have you used any medication for it?

Once, last night.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about vomiting?

No. I don't vomit often and I don't know if I've had a headache this bad since 2010

I have borderline hypertension and cancer runs on my maternal side.

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.
