Hello Mutiara, thank you for asking.
Headaches are felt differently for each person. Some people may feel pressure or heaviness on the head and face, or it may be felt as a throbbing pain. Headaches can be acute or chronic. Generally said to be chronic if in one month there were a total of 15 days of attacks, for 3 consecutive months. Headaches can be caused by disorders of the brain, sinus cavity problems, eye problems, jaw problems, ear problems. Other causes can be psychological stress, resting is not optimal, anemia, hypoglycemia, hypotension, the effects of certain drugs, changes in hormonal balance, and so on. However, not all headaches can be clearly identified. Some headaches have no apparent reason.
Headaches like yours may be migraines, cluster-type headaches, or tension-type headaches. You should consult a neurologist about this. The doctor may need to do a CT scan or MRI to assess any abnormalities in the head area that might cause headaches. Some examples of abnormalities in the head area for example:
Venous artery malformations.
Brain blood vessel aneurysm.
Cyst or brain tumor.
Infection process in the brain.
Bleeding in the brain.
Jaw and tooth problems.
The treatment will be adjusted to the doctor's findings. The doctor may need to provide more potent anti-pain to deal with the pain.
You can try to reduce pain by:
Optimal rest, sleep 6-8 hours a night.
Recognize and overcome psychological stress factors.
Limit the amount of time staring at an electronic screen, including a cellphone.
Choose a good sleeping position.
Stretch your neck and shoulder muscles regularly.
Regarding back pain, this may be related to muscle injury due to physical activity or body posture errors. You can also consult a neurologist about this.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
