Have you seen a doctor? Seriously, why would you trust strangers to diagnose you via the Internet? That could be quite dangerous.
The symptoms you describe could be some kind of headache disorder, but they could also be symptoms of other issues, some of them quite serious.
As much as we'd like to help you, what you need is for someone to diagnose your headache and recommend treatment, and that can't be done via the Internet. The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examinat...
Definition Fractional excretion of sodium (FENa) is the amount of salt (sodium) that leaves your body through urine compared to the amount filtered and reabsorbed by the kidney. FENa is not a test, but rather a calculation based on the concentrations of sodium and creatinine in your blood and urine. Urine and blood chemistry tests are necessary to perform this calculation. Alternative Names FE sodium; FENa How the test is performed Blood and urine samples are sent to a lab, where they are examined for their salt (sodium) and creatinine levels.

The doctor-patient relationship is based on trust. The patient trusts the doctor. The doctor trusts the patient. This two-way street is undermined by urine drug testing. When a patient is presented with a cup, the doctor is in essence telling the patient that "I do not trust you". Because of this, I have been and continue to be uncomfortable about urine drug testing in medical clinics. For years, I have relied on my observational skills to determine if someone is showing signs of inappropriate chemical use.
Why do I care about inappropriate chemical use? I am not the police. However, I am concerned about safety: safety of my patients and safety of the public. If a man is using his wife's Valium in conjunction with what I am prescribing him, I need to know about it because he just drove himself to my clinic. If a mentally challenged woman is using methamphetamine along with the medications that I am prescribing, I need to know about it so that she can get more appropriate care t...
