    I was referred to Dr. Sowel after having a craniotomy to help with the side effects that include my head constantly feeling like Irma in a vice, head very often feeling hot like I have the flu. And my ear always ring. To combat this I was told to take Melatonin, which he says is an herbal sleeping pill?? And come back and see him in 4 months. Sooooo, how is a herbal sleeping pill going to help any of these side effects??? My quality of life is drastically deminished including work. Thx
