CAUTION!!!: This kind of complaint can indicate a very BAD problem. It would be irresponsible of ANY physician to give you advice about these kinds of symptoms in this kind of setting. Please see a physician right away!

Headache: Intense headache has to be evaluated. Headache has many causes , she need to be checked by her doctor & if persistent a neuro consult is recommended. She can try tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for now but please see her doctor. I hope she feel better soon.
