    hello,considering the long hours of work,its likely a primary headache.does it come in episodes?meaning lasts for hours,then leaves,to return weeks later?how bad is the headache?does it affect your vision?can you gaze at bright light during the headache?do you usually experience signs when the headache is about to start?for how many months or years have you been having it?and history of fever,loss of appetite,vomiting recently?do you work with computers for long?have you used analgesics for a prolonged period of time?

    Thank you for the timely response. The head ache had been noticed for around 6-7months now. At 1st it comes and leaves, but for like 4months it as remained without going. I have used paracetamol severally but does not solve it. I also use computers all day at work. I do not feel dizzy also
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    hello,first of all stop the paracetamol. start tab ibuprofen 400mg thrice a day for 5days.get a removable screen(like a slightly dark shield) for your computer so as to minimize the bright light falling directly into your eyes.let's see how you respond to the new drug.meanwhile,if you have peptic ulcer,do not use ibuprofen.

    okay sir, I will revert after 5days then. also, could the head ache be a challenge with my sex life. I last only few secs having sex with my wife
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    nah it should not be a challenge.the like reason for quick ejaculation is stress.you need to get a way to manage your stress,conquer sleep deprivation, take regular meals and avoid eye strain.the above can contribute to your headache.Exercise more,hangout with friends at leisure,get away from work place environment when you are free,take deep breathes, stay with family when you have the opportunity. once stress is off,your sex life improves,and you even function better at work.

    what could be done to prevent reoccurring after possible treatment. also, what is the effect on a male partner. and what is the cure.
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    most times it doesn't affect the male.though a male can carry it. a female with it must maintain good personal hygiene,avoid douching,unprotected sex,avoid using tampons during menses etc.

    Have read your posts on infertility for days now and I must say it's a job well done. But I need to know, after the tests and you see a decline in motility and also infections, what is advisable to be treated first and what treatment is preferable
    Dr. Femi O answered:

    Thank you very much and welcome back.if a semen analysis is done,and infection is discovered,patient is started on broad spectrum antibiotics based on the most likely organism causing the infection.When microscopy culture and sensitivity result comes out,the antibiotics can be then be changed if need be.Its important because sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as chlamydia and gonorrhea,can affect sperm motility thus a potential cause of male infertility.

    anytime I try to stretch, I feel this pain by the left part of my chest what could be the cause
    Dr. Femi O answered:
    a year ago
    hello,welcome back.if it occurs with movement such as stretching then its likely muscular or from the bones(ribs).massage the area with neurogesic cream twice a day.

    thank you Doc. I would try the massage and revert back. but what could be other causes because the pain I feel looks more than a massagr
    Dr. Femi O answered:
    a year ago
    its not more than what a massage with the cream can solve.it may be difficult to determine the cause but dont take it as been from the heart.you are 31,you are not likely to have heart diseases at this age.check your blood pressure when you are chanced though.
