Customer Question

My 15 year olddaughter took 2 Aleve for her terrible headache at 7:30 this morning, but no relief. She has had plenty of water and breakfast, what should I do?
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Episodic - tons of stress from multiple coaches at school. No nausea yet - I have just picker her up at school & getting her to bed. It is not a migraine to my knowledge. I suffer from them and she doesn't seem to have the symptoms.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, thank you.

Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, There are three different types of headache-

-Tension headache - which usually occur when the muscles of the back of the head and neck are tensed due to tension.

-Migraines- Migraines usually start around an eye and cause a throbbing or pulsing headache.

-Cluster headaches- this type of headache usually occur on one side of the head, occur on and off for years and months, and can also affect the eye or the nose on the same side of the head.

Eye strain from excess usage of computer can also cause such symptoms.

From your description, it seems likely that she has developed Tension headaches.

If this is tension headache, then they often respond well to massage therapy and stress reduction techniques such as breathing exercises and meditation.

She can Try to rest in a dark, quiet room . You can place an ice pack wrapped in a cloth on the back of her neck and apply gentle pressure to painful areas on her scalp.

Stress is an important causative factor of such headaches.
Try to keep herself relaxed.

She can be given OTC Tylenol.

Yoga , deep breathing exercises would help her.

Please get it clinically evaluated from her doctor.

Hope this helped
