Customer Question
I am a 44-year-old female...
I am a 44-year-old female that had a severe migraine. I went to the er last night with these symptoms. The doctor noted that my cat scan was clear except for signs of atrophy of the brain. Should I be concerned, or seek additional medical care?
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: I have had a few migraines in the past, but not this severe. Yes, I vomited twice.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am on levothyroxine .05 mg. As well as triamterene 37.5 mg. My blood work came back normal except for low potassium. I take 99mg a day of K, and so the doctor suggested I double the dose.
