Mr Ofentse Joseph Sello came through to The Headache Clinic for a consultation with the medical specialists to determine the underlying cause of his headaches in November 2016. He experienced severe headaches ever since he was 10 years old. He took over the counter pain relief medication like Panado and Grandpa, but it only made the headaches worse. It went to the extent that he had to carry headache pain relief pills to school just in case he gets an attack when he is not at home. He then went to an eye optometrist thinking that the headaches could have been a result of his eyes. But even after Ofentse was given the spectacles, he still experienced the headaches far worse than the previous pain.
After several years of pain, his mum searched on the internet for headache specialists in South Africa. And found The Headache Clinic on the search page results. Ofentse went through the full examination process at the clinic on Tuesday 1st November 2016 and was diagnosed with Muscle tension headaches.
At the clinic Ofentse was given no drug treatment, instead the posture modifying appliance (PMA) was prescribed to ease muscle tension. Two day after leaving the clinic, Ofentse had fully recovered from his headaches. Two weeks later he returned to the clinic for a followup appointment and his PMA was adjusted. Ever since that day Ofentse has not had any headaches and he is back to his normal life again.
For the first time in many years Ofentse can study without interruptions and his marks for the last quarter of 2016 have improved significantly. Doctors, medical staff and admin staff at The Headache Clinic a big thank you from the Sello family. Great work you have done for us all.”
