Hi I was hoping for some advice regarding headaches I get ALL THE TIME. They are so exhausting and are accompanied by loud ringing (tinnitus) and sometimes 'wooshes ' in the right ear.
I had a brain stem bleed from a cavernous malformation in 2009. Pretty much since then I have been on various antidepressants/anti anxiety medication. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD by a therapist. I'm generally a stressful person anyway, and I'm in my last year at uni, and have a 3 year old.
My GP is pretty useless. I've been to my drs 3 or 4 times in the past 12 months with very depressive episodes. I also have IBS which flares up when the previous worsens. As do my headaches. Regarding the headaches it's 'take some paracetanol'.
I don't know whether the headaches are related to a brain problem due to the stroke/surgery. Or resulting from the PTSD/depression. Because of this I don't know how to push my GP to refer me on for further help on treatments, or who to refer me to.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm asking but I'm just looking for some light.
Thanks for any response,
