headaches

I am 27 and have been having a lot of headaches. The GP could not find any cause and so wants me to have a scan. My med aid does not cover this. Do you think this is necessary and are there other alternatives that are less drastic to reaching a diagnosis

Unfortunately, persistant headaches to which no obvious causes can be found, have to be evaluated with a brain scan. I therefore, suggest that you have a CT scan of your head done.
