15 year old daughter with constant headaches
My 15 yr old daughter has been having constant headaches now for about a month and a half. The doctors have tried Motrin and migraine medication but nothing seems to be working. They have now scheduled her for a CT Scan. What are they looking for?
Unfortunately, I cannot read the mind of anyone, let alone another physician. I would ask your question to the person who ordered the CT scan as they will be able to answer your question in a more accurate manner.
