Causes And Ways To Deal With Headaches When Doing Spontaneous Activities?
Hello Doctor .. u003cbr u003eI my Pearl, unmarried woman, age 26 Years 9 months. U003cbr u003eI am working in an office that is more or less dealing with a laptop for more than 8 hours. U003cbr u003e The complaint that I often experience is pain in shoulder and neck. Often the right headache when doing activities that are too spontaneous and move fast. But when the neck and shoulders are not stiff, the headache disappears. U003cbr u003eBut on Friday night September 27, 2019, the neck of my nape was aching, made my head ache, then gradually discomfort arose in the head above the left side. u003cbr u003eI don’t feel dizzy, my eyes don’t blur, I don’t have a fever, I’m not weak, I can still work. But the discomfort in my head is like a head that has been pulled out (pulled), the pain suddenly, like being stabbed and electrocuted. but if pressed hard, the pain disappears (nothing). When stroked softly, in certain areas will occur as sick as crawled. I want to see a doctor but I am confused to explain, because according to me, the pain is strange. I do not have the flush like a sick person, but the discomfort in my head disrupts activities, because I am tired of frowning suddenly. U003cbr u003 begging for his advice, what should I do. U003cbr u003e Thank you
Hello, Ms. pearlAPF Thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Headaches that occur to you can basically be caused by several conditions such as:
Primary headaches such as migraine or tension type headache (TTH)
effects of head trauma or a history of previous head trauma
presence of interference with the blood vessels
pinched nerves in the spine or neck
presence of arthritis (arthritis)
Basically, the headaches that you experience can be caused by your daily work activities that are not accompanied by exercise or stretching, so that spasms in the muscles are likely to have an effect on the nerves that supply your head. Another possibility is a history of trauma to the head where this can cause disruption to the head or it could also be on the neck, so that the nerves are affected or can be pinched which will give rise to symptoms as you convey it.
It is difficult for us to ascertain the causes that occur on your head and neck, so we strongly advise you to consult a doctor or neurologist directly to have a complete examination of both your medical history and physical examination. If the doctor requires additional tests, other tests may be carried out such as blood tests, head and spinal Rongten, or even a CT scan. We recommend taking a number of steps that can be useful in reducing the pain and discomfort you experience right now, such as:
avoid twisting neck movements jerking / ringing the neck
manage your stress well
meet your daily rest needs
do regular exercise to relax the muscles of the body especially your neck
do sleep in the recommended position and do not use a pillow that is too high
consumption of foods that are healthy, nutritious, high in fiber, low in fat and low in salt
Avoid consumption of foods containing preservatives such as MSG
Thus we can convey, hopefully the information we convey can be useful for you. thanks.
