Evaluate: We need to determine if this is just a transitory headache, a chronic headache, or a debilitating headache. A simple stress headache can usually be relieved by over the counter analgesics. I have also found accupressure to be of value. Persistant and/or more severe headaches need to be evaluated by a phyiscian.

Complex: Diabetic ulcers can be quite complex. Diabetic patients tend to develope peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, and other complications of the disease. Pressure, trauma, and other stress factors can lead to diabetic ulcers. It is important for diabetics to check their feet regularly and not go barefoot.
