I am having pain in my left side of head about four fingers above the ear since 2years now, along with palpitations. the pain is not very sharp but feels almost every time.
Problem is
I am not able to read more than 10 minutes or so.
I am fogetting things sometime I am not able to recall names of known person also .
Forgetting things is making it worse.
I tried allopathy for 4months but it don't helped.
Then I tried patanjali ayurveda for at least 15-16 months it controlled the problem to an extent. I also take ayurvedic medicine from a local vaid for same period . I got the ayurvedic medicines checked both from patanjali doctor and also from local vaid they told that I can take their medicines collectively, still it doesn't help me much.
Now I am not taking any type of medicines since 4 months .
Thank you.
