She underwent number clinical and bio-clinical tests including the scans and other super special tests on the advice of expert super special doctors. Though she is given for one month of medication with no progress. On seeing her suffering Mrs. Hepsyba sent her to a well-known Neurologist in Vijayawada accompanied by Mr. Manikya Rao and her Mother. Again after having all the process and MRI Scans the doctor declared that all her reports are normal and there is nothing wrong for her to get this frequent unbearable headache and gave her one-month medication.
