I need to get peoples opinions here...My wife, 26, is going on her 9th day of a throbbing headache. Previous to this, never had more than just a little headache which resolved with Tylenol. This one, came on, Sudden onset, such intense pain she thought her head would burst. It was accompanied by a 103.7 fever, some basalar head/neck pain, but whole head throbbing. We took her to the ER, HR 130, BP 81/61, temp 103, Pain at a 10. ER gave 2 L NS, tordol, pain meds, which reduced pain to a 6 but never went away. Labs drawn-cbc, cmp, crp, ua. only abnormal was elevated crp (3.5) and slightly elevated monocytes. Discharged and told to return in 2 days if symptoms didnt go away. Went back 2 days later, Drew same labs, crp still elevated (3.2) but no other abnormal values. Gave her 1 L LR, with DHA, and magnesium. CT scan performed, came back normal. More pain meds given, which gorked her, but never did anything for the pain. Told to come back in 2 days if no result. 2 days later re-presented, same treatment, CRP down to 1.5, no other elevations. MRI performed, no abnormalities. She has had NO OTHER SYMPTOMS. Severe headache-throbbing, and 1 day of high fever... What next? Have an appt to see Neurologist in 4 weeks, but in the mean time, any ideas? She is superwoman usually, and this is really freaking me out....
