A 40-year-old member asked:

Should I do an MRI or CT scan for my child's headache?

Dr. Scott Katz

It depends.: If your pediatrician thinks there could be a serious explanation for the headaches, they will make that decision. An MRI is better at finding abnormalities of the brain itself, such as a tumor. A CT is better for discovering bleeding or abnormalities of bony structures.

It depends: Make sure you take tylenol (acetaminophen) or Acetaminophen only as directed by the package. Generally, you can take up to 1000 mg at a time if you do not have a history of liver disease or are taking medications that interact with or contain Acetaminophen (check the ingredient list on the box--it's present in alot of other medications). No one should not take more than 4000 mg in a 24 hour period.

Reduce to 3 times: Reduce to 3 times a week; you need at least a day between each episode for recovery. Make sure you drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Stop all sodas and other acids going into the body. Gentle rebounding each day to move lymphatics and microcirculation. Make sure of good bowel emptying to get toxins from the body. This will reduce inflammation and Lactic Acid causing your pain.
