Hello Sry Kusuma,
Migraine is a type of primary headache that is characterized by:
Pulsed headache, dominant on one side of the head Headache attacks can last 4-72 hours Intensity of moderate-to-severe headaches, the patient may be unable to move Very common accompanied by complaints of nausea / vomiting Increased sensitivity of sound and light during a migraine attack Migraine can be triggered by hormonal changes in women, consuming too much alcohol and caffeine, not getting enough sleep, jetlag, stress, too much salty food or too many additives added to food, side effects of certain drugs.
Very severe and sudden migraine without previous migraine history, should be examined further by a doctor. Brain imaging using CT-scan or MRI is needed to ensure there are no disorders in the brain that cause migraine complaints.
Treatment that can be given for migraine can be in the form of pain relievers, triptans and ergotamine, medicines to reduce nausea. Patients are also advised to take relaxation therapy, have adequate rest, manage stress well, exercise regularly, drink enough water, and eat foods with balanced nutrition.
Pain in the right chest can be caused by several things, ranging from mild or severe in nature, including:
Muscle strain. Injury to the muscles that usually arise when you do repetitive strenuous activities, lifting things, doing sports that train the chest muscles like push ups, etc. Trauma to the muscles or sternum. For example if there is a history of collisions in the chest Gastroesophageal reflux disease Costochondrytis Pleuritis Anxiety disorders There are many causes that can cause pain in the right chest. To diagnose it, it requires a direct examination with a doctor. The doctor also needs to inquire in full the history of your complaint, trigger factors, factors that relieve pain, accompanying symptoms (coughing, shortness of breath, nausea, weight loss, belching, etc.), as well as the medications that you have already received. Appropriate treatment can be given if an appropriate diagnosis has been found from the results of your examination.
You need to see a doctor immediately if chest pain is like this:
Chest pain on the left or behind the middle bone of the chest that is not clearly positioned (can not indicate the exact location of pain), pain such as being struck by a heavy object or tied Chest pain accompanied by spreading to the left arm or jaw and neck Chest pain accompanied by shortness of breath heavy , cold sweat, and fainting. Chest pain with this image is often associated with a heart attack that requires immediate treatment. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
