Requesting your advice for my mother's severe headache
My mother is suffering from "Bilateral frontal peri-ventricular ischaemic changes with Cerebellar atrophy". C.T. Scan of brain shows Cerebeller folia prominent. Focal hypodensities are noted at bilateral peri-ventricular region. At left paraventricular region tiny focal (Post CVA) astrogliosis present. She is having constant headache with pain in neck. DESVAL ER 250 mg (OD after lunch) & Sibellium 10 (@ 7 PM) are being given to her. Prodep 20 mg 1 tab @ 10 AM was discontinued as per doctor's advice due to side effect (severe shivering). Pls advice, how can she get rid of headache ? Is there any chance of memory loss in future for this disease ? She is forgetful in nature. Also she is having Age related macular degeration in her both eyes. Her age is 63 yrs. Pls advice.

Hi,
How is your mother? If present medications are not helping with the severe headaches, a change in dosage or medicine may be indicated. While memory loss can be associated with a variety of factors including aging, there are many issues also to consider such as her medical history, over-all health and presence of co-morbid conditions. It is best that you discuss this with her doctor to ease any worries.  She can also benefit from complementary and alternative medicine such as biofeedback therapy and acupuncture for relief. Take care and do keep us posted.
