Patient is much better now. She has resumed a full day at school. She still complains of a headache but more towards the end of the day.
She also has a sinus problem which is activated by pollen. Sometimes the headache is triggered by that.
Patient still gets tired very easily.

About a month ago , while travelling by train the middle BERTH fell on my head . .There was a lot noise. At that time there was no pain. I came home in afternoon & then & worked on the computer. I had a dull headache in the evening . Next day ( As I recollected as a homeopathic friend had advised to my infant son who fell from bed that he should be given Cuprum Met 6 ) ,I went to a homeopathic store & got Cuprum met 30. I took the 3-4 doses of cuprum met that day .
However there was not much relief .I saw in the internet that I should have taken Arnica 30 immediately . So I took Arnica 30 on the 3rd & 4th day of injury. I remarkably recovered and was totally fit & fine till 20 th day of the head impact . I had taken Arnica 30 only for 2 days !!
But from the 21st day , Again I have started getting headaches.I forget to take Arnica regularly & take it once in a while . Should I continue with Arnica or I should take something else ?
God bless you.
