48 hours ago I got an instant severe pain in my head. It lasted about 20 minutes. I took ibuprofen. I helped but I currently still have a headache. Not as severe but I have been taking pain medication aroundd the clock.

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

Daily. No nausea.

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

I have tinnitus.
