My mother is diabetic and takes a shot every night. For the last month or more she has been having severe headaches. taking a vicodin, or excedrin migraine only relieves it for a short while then it comes back. Any idea what maybe causing these headaches?
mrscora01 responded:
Hi Barb. There are so many different things that could cause this that she really should see a doctor. Anything from allergies to the high bp or the diabetes to stress, to all sorts of other things. Have the doc rule things out with blood work and keep at him/her until you find a reasonable solution. Vocodin for a short term solution is not the thing for the long term.

I agree with what MrsCora01 said and want to add -- not to scare you -- that it could be something as serious as a brain tumor. It probably is nothing that bad, but she needs to see a doctor soon. Having headaches that severe for over a month is not normal.
