9am Sadie Burrows – Headache

Sadie is a 23 year old woman who has asked for a telephone call because she has experienced a headache a week ago. She states that the pain began behind one eye and was accompanied by nausea and photophobia. Over a few hours, the pain spread to her left temple and eye.

She says it got worse and she had to leave work early. She works as a personal assistant. Once home, she took two 500mg tablets of paracetamol but vomited shortly afterward. She lay down despite the early hour and eventually fell asleep.
