Severe Headaches vs Menstruation
Dear Doc

Every month 2 or 3 days before my periods, I suffer from severe headaches. During this period I am unable to go on with my daily routines, I can''t even drive as I''d feel like being in a dark place and close my eyes all the time, even strong pain killers like myprodol don''t help , but the moment I start having my periods the headache gets better. I can live with period pains but need something to get rid of these headaches. This problem only started 2yrs ago after i had my little daughter and I am 33years old. PLS HELP...

These headaches are due to hormonal changes before menstruation. There is treatment available but you will have to consult a doctor for an examination and prescription treatment.
