Please talk w your: Parents about this. Have you been seen by your regular physician yet? If, not that is a good place to start. If yes, and the type of headache appears to be elusive - than neurology consult may be prudent. Take care.

Need doctor exam: Several questions can be asked to help determine which type of headache you may have. Treatment depends upon the diagnosis and also, frequency of the ha. Is your period related? Do not overuse over the counter meds such as tylenol, (acetaminophen) motrin, advil, etc. This will lead you to cause yourself more headaches than to begin with. Reduce stress, eat properly, sleep well, avoid fatigue, no dehydration.

Constant Migraines: I feel empathy for your distress. Due to” Constant migraine/head pain”, please see a Neurologist for Diagnosis and Treatment. Practice : • Focus on “Breath Is Life” • Keep saying until you run out of breath. • Take another deep breath and repeat the same. • Do it with 10 breaths • Do not focus on other thoughts, they will pass away like clouds on mountain • Visual Imagery of National parks
