Hello Dr., I am an hepatitis b patient. Am not on treatment yet due to poor financial status. But am just managing it depending when I will have money. For past 3 days now am having this constant headache on the left side of my head and I also have toothache too. I don't know if its due to the hepatitis b. Please Dr., what do I do? Its making me uncomfortable. I cant even sleep at night or during the day. Help me please. Andrew.
We would love to help you, but it's simply impossible without having access to your medical history and your family's medical history, sitting down with you to discuss your symptoms, and examining you in person.
We realize that doesn't change your financial situation. There are federal health centers that offer free care in some areas. This article was written for Migraine patients, but check it out - HRSA Health Centers Can Provide Basic Migraine Care. You can also call your county health department and the closest office of your state's Department of Health and Human services to see if they can point you toward free or reduced cost clinics.
Thanks for your question, and good luck,
John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
