Causes And Treats Headaches When You’re Tired And Can’t Focus?
Good afternoon/evening sir/madam doctor.rnI want to ask, why do I often have headaches or dizziness, especially when I am tired at work and when I think too much about something that causes me to lose focus. And also when I want to sleep, it often happens before I’ve never experienced anything like this. I once had typhus and was hospitalized at the nearest hospital within 4 days of being allowed to go home. Does typhoid still linger or is it because of the effects of the disease?rnrnWhen I was in the hospital, I also had X-rays of the lungs, I didn’t understand the X-rays, but the hospital said I had TB after coming home from the hospital, I took medicine for 6 months. The medicine pack is a square red color as long as I take the medicine, it produces orange urine.rnrnAnd recently I checked up at the clinic and the X-ray results showed spots u0026amp; shadow of a line in the left lung (suspect kp)rnI checked up to apply for a job.rnrnHow should I handle it, Mr/Ms doctor?rnThank you, Mr/Ms doctor.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dizziness and headaches may be caused by disorders of the head itself, or it could be in other organs but have secondary effects on the head.
Both typhoid (typhoid fever) and tuberculosis (Tuberculosis) are both types of infectious diseases. Almost all infections in the body have the potential to cause dizziness and headaches due to the release of certain chemical mediators in the body that play a role in regulating inflammation. However, with good treatment, after the typhus has healed, dizziness and headaches should also improve, not lasting for a long time.
Tuberculosis (Tuberculosis, TB) of the lungs is an infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This disease can be cured by taking OAT (anti-TB drugs) for at least 6 months. It needs to be clarified, have you undergone complete OAT treatment? Has the doctor declared you cured?
When viewed from the last examination you did, chances are you still have pulmonary tuberculosis. This condition can occur if you have not completed treatment (drop-out TB), are resistant to the treatment given (resistant TB), or also experience a relapse after being declared cured (relapse TB). You should immediately go to the doctor so that it is clear your TB status and what is the best treatment to overcome your complaints.
Through a doctor's examination, other possible causes of dizziness and headaches can be identified and treated. Some examples of other possible causes are:
Other viral or bacterial infections, eg ARI, meningitis
Primary headache, eg migraine, cluster headache, tension headache
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol)
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
Anemia (low blood hemoglobin)
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on
At this time, you should increase your rest time and reduce the activities that are too exhausting. Do exercise regularly and eat with discipline. Avoid excessive psychological stress. Lastly, live a healthy lifestyle, stay away from cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs. If the headache is very annoying, you can take paracetamol first to relieve it.
Hope it helps ya..
