She states that this is the sixth time in the last 2 months she has had this headache. She says the headaches last 2–3 days and have impacted her ability to concentrate at work. She complains of nausea and has vomited three times in the last 3 hours. She states, “the light hurts my eyes.” She rates her pain as a 10/10 at this time. Ibuprofen and acetaminophen ease her symptoms somewhat but do not totally relieve them. No other current complaints.

- Explain both the neurological and musculoskeletal pathophysiologic processes of why the patient presents these symptoms
- Explain how the highlighted processes interact to affect the patient.

Written Expression and Formatting – English Writing Standards: Correct grammar, mechanics, and proper punctuation.
Written Expression and Formatting – The paper follows correct APA (7th edition) format for title page, headings, font, spacing, margins, indentations, page numbers, running heads, parenthetical/in-text citations, and reference list.
Please use references that have been published in the past 5 years. Please use primary research and references rather than patient webpages. Mayo Clinic is not a scholarly resource.
Please make sure to include an in-text citation for all non-original assertions. A non-original assertion is any information you obtained from a source. For example, you learned about cytokines and infection from a source; you need to cite that source. At a minimum, cite the initial sentence and the last sentence of the paragraph if it relates to the disease that you are discussing. You do not have to cite the actual case study that was posted.
Please avoid the use of the first person in your case studies.
Please remember to include an introduction and conclusion in your papers. Please also be sure to include a purpose statement for the paper (i.e. “The purpose of this paper is to…”).
The rubric is used to review the patho content of your paper. I will also evaluate your use of APA.
