    Help me knowing the problem from a sudden headache
    Sonu716 posted:
    My wife has facing the sudden headache problem once in a month. The headache goes for 3 to 4 hours, in which 2 hours are quite unbearable for her. She just doesn't listen anything and want to lie down on bed, even that doesn't lessen her pain. And after few hours she woke up and behaves like hangover person for an hour or two and then everything gets normal.
    She just rejects if I offer her some balm, painkillers, etc, and remain on bed like a dead body crying in between the hours.
    She has this problem before she gave birth to my lovely son but that used to come once in year. From last 2 years she is having this sudden occurrence quite rapidly. A friend of mine who is Dentist suggested me to visit ENT (ear, nose, throat doctor) and told me that it is not a case of Neurologist.
    I am living in very small city of India so willing not to avoid this problem, so want to go to big city here for specialist.
    Please help me knowing what exactly is this case? Why she has having such a bitter pain and which doctor I should visit, ENT or Neurologist?
    Please share me if you have the same problem and what diagnose you have been through.

    Thanks everyone for reading this.
