I am a practical nursing student studying in the first semester. I am terrible in the health assessment class.
(hanging on by fingernails)
I need to come up a diagnosis for a patient with a headache during a head-neck assessment.
Headache can be cause by a variety of thing, there are primary and secondary headaches and different types of headaches. What kind of information related to the head-neck assessment do I need to narrow the symptoms down to make a well-informed diagnosis?
I can only ask one question.
Ask the patient to point out the location and if it radiates to other parts?
This assignment is giving me a huge headache.
