SUDDEN ONSET HEADACHE WITH VOMITING AND DIZZINESS

I RECENTLY RECEIVED THIS POST FROM A PATIENT.

comments : i need a doctor who can help me what is wrong with my head for the last 3 weeks now. half of my head hurting and the pain in my head moves around. like my back head, everywhere part of my head. everyday day my heads hurt. and i vomet, feel dizzy. but right now i dont have a health insurance.

THIS IS IMPORTANT, IF A NEW HEADACHE UNLIKE ANY IN THE PAST SUDDENLY PRESENTS WITH SYMPTOMS SUCH AS DIZZINESS AND/OR VOMITING OR OTHER NEUROLOGICAL SYMPTOMS MEDICAL EVALUATION SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY.

MY RESPONSE
If this is a new type of headache that you have never had before you should have an immediate medical evaluation. It is important to establish that there are no serious organic problems. I would suggest having a neurologist evaluate you first.

IF THE HEADACHE IS NOT ORGANIC IN NATURE AND YOU RULE OUT SERIOUS CONDITIONS THE NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY IS AN EXCELLENT MEANS TO PREVENT, ELIMINATE AND/OR ALLEVIATE MIGRAINES, TENSION HEADACHES, ETTH, CDH AND OTHER CHRONIC PROBLEMS. THE NEUROMUSCULAR DENTIST IS THE IDEAL PRIMARY CARETAKER FOR MOST CHRONIC HEADACHE PATIENTS. THE NEUROLOGIST IS ESSENTIAL IN EVALUATING UNDERLYING CAUSES. DRUG TREATMENT, PHYSICAL THERAPY, CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT AND NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY CAN ALL BE EFFECTIVE IN TREATING AND ARE DONE BY DIFFERENT PRACTITIONERS. NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY (NMD)CORRECTS THE UNDERLYING PRIMARY CAUSE IN PATIENTS WHOSE HEADACHES ARE POSTURE RELATED TO THE HEAD, NECK AND JAW. THE NMD FREQUENTLY WILL WORK WITH THE OTHER MEDICAL SPECIALISTS FOR OPTIMUM RESULTS.
