A 60y/o man has arrivd at the emergency department with a complaint of headache. He states that he never had headaches until about 2 weeks ago when he began awakening in the mornings with head pain. the headache would go away each day after he had been up and around for a few hours and had taken aspirin. In the last few days, however, neither aspirin nor acetaminophen has helped and the headache has become nearly continuous. His wife states that his speech and balance have been "off" a little. He wonders whether there can be any connection between his headaches and a recent fall or a recent elevation in blood pressure.
