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

I have nausea often, but don't usually have problems with headaches - the TN causes severe pain, as does the ear situation at times.

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

I am type 2 diabetic, but do not take medicine - use diet/exercise to control, have history of high bp since 1994. Lots of anxiety and depression throughout whole life. Problems with muscles in my legs.
