08/29/2007

Question:

I am 20 years old. I have been suffering with a headache for 3 days now. I recently saw my period which came in a very strange way. I had no menstrual pains like I would. the headache is severe. I feel it on both sides of my head and when I put down my head I feel it getting stronger. Could you tell me whats causing it? My eye also hurts and I can`t see clearly.

Answer:

It is very difficult to determine what is the cause of your headache from this brief description. It is very important that you seek medical attention at your primary MD or an urgent care facility for an evaluation.
