What to do if we have prolonged headache after hitting our head?
My friend hit her head on a tree forcefully. It swells on that area and she had a headache. After 2 days swelling is gone but she had headache. Since the day she hit she is having the headache. Now it’s more than a month and even now she had the headache. What should she do? Is it critical?
Will it be dangerous?

She ought to go to the doctor… it sounds like she may have suffered a concussion. It’s really best to get it checked out, as it can lead to other problems down the road if not treated.

Did you read the directions on the bottle of Advil before taking pills?

Pain relievers like Advil, Aleve, Motrin are strong and directions say to drink a glass of liquid with the pills. I take Aleve when needed, and the daily dosage is no more than 3 pills per 24 hours. even though you take these pain relievers with only a sip of water/fluid, expect to have stomach pain as the medicines can burn your stomach lining. Worst, continued use without enough liquid can cause an ulcer, so be careful. You should try one of the over-the-counter medicines like Prilosec, Prevacid, Zantac that reduce stomach acid from already burning your stomach lining. Dairy products can help for a short time, like milk, ice cream, but Calcium in dairy products turn-on your stomach acid, and you may need to repeat the anti-acid pills to try and balance you stomach pain.

How soon can you take advil after drinking?

How soon can you take advil after drinking?
I had about 5 drinks last night and before bed I had a glass of water. In the middle of the night, I woke up with my period. Now I have horrible period cramps, but no hangover. I never get hangovers. I was wondering if it would be okay to take two normal strength advil for my cramps, or will it mess with the alcohol that’s probably still in my body?

Taking advil won’t hurt anything. You can take them at any time. As a matter of fact, they tell you to take them before you go to bed when you have been drinking to prevent the hangover.
