Just a quick question regarding medical history for a book (fiction) that I am writing. For the sake of historical accuracy, what kind of treatment would doctor's have presecribed for severe headaches (brought on by brain tumour but this isn't found out) in 1897/1898? Just a prelim. really as books have a habit of developing of their own accord! It can be herbal treatment as well due to the nature of the text, but just wondering generally about medicine of the time. I know a fair amount, but I really want to dig around and get opinions. Thanks!
