My sister has mild mental retardation, she is 31 yrs old and she's so beautiful. She seems a very nice and calm on her situation and is always silent. She can do some household choirs if she's in the mood, but most of the time, she wants to be alone and in bed. My problem with her most of the time is she always complain of headache, and she always says it seems there is something on her head and claiming there is something moving, sometimes she put sticks inside her ears, and she said she can't sleep, most of the time she hawls or cry because she said she cant sleep.
Me and my mom tried to bring her to doctor but they didnt see anything wrong on her head. SO we ended up in Psychiatrist, and shes just given some sleeping tablets for anxiety and vitamins. But despite the medicines she always insist something wrong with her which we know is all psychological, Has anyone can give me advise how to convince her or other ways to make her comfortable. Thank you.

Have the other doctors ruled out any health problems?
