I'm 62 male and had angioplasty in October 06. Lately I have started getting this mild headache immediately after meal which would last for about an hour or so and would disappear on its own without any medication or treatment. I have been on medication for high cholesterol and BP and border line Uric acid and diabetes. About 2 months back, a slight change was made in my cholesterol medication from Rosuvas 20 mg to Rosuvas F 20 mg. and this headache only started about a fortnight back.

Have a pain that goes up my neck and the tightened muscles are what causes the headache. I've had message which works for immediate relief but not long term. For some reason I've had this current one for several days. I'm 45 and have noticed my menstrual cycle shortening to about 24 days. My self-diagnosis blames hormones.
