Causes Sudden Dizziness?
Hello, I want to ask, some days my father often experience sudden dizziness, at first he felt his nose rich pain continues to spread to the head, well my father also has a history of nasal polyps, what does that have to do? or maybe other symptoms of the disease? mhon help, thank you in advance
Good evening Syarah, thank you for the question.
Dizziness is a term commonly used to describe a sense of giddiness, floating, spinning or like going to fall / faint. While headache is pain (like being tied / pressed / pricked) that is felt on the head. These two terms are very different in terms of the possible causes of the complaint.
Dizziness complaints can be caused by quite a number of conditions such as vertigo, lack of blood sugar, orthostatic hypotension, anemia, dehydration, side effects of drugs or even stroke.
While headaches can be caused by headaches of the primary type (due to nerve stimulation sensitive to pain in the head) such as tension headaches, cluster headaches or migraines, but can also be caused by secondary type headaches namely headaches due to other abnormalities in the head such as stroke , head injury, brain hemorrhage, brain tumor or high blood pressure.
Therefore, to ascertain which complaints are felt by your father and how your father's condition is at this time, it is advisable to take your father to the doctor for examination. The doctor will evaluate all body conditions and also your father's complaints, so it can be determined what are the possible conditions experienced by your father. If deemed necessary, the doctor may advise your father to undergo several examinations to determine and determine therapy.
Regarding nasal polyps, this condition rarely causes headache complaints. The most common complaint caused by this disease is nasal congestion. However, further tests need to be carried out to ascertain whether the complaint felt by your father is currently related or not with the disease.
In the meantime, if a complaint is felt, encourage your father to rest. Avoid doing activities that are quite strenuous. Also avoid things that are felt to trigger or aggravate complaints. Do regular exercise. Avoid consuming foods that are high in salt and also high in fat. If the complaint is felt to be sufficiently disturbing, you can try using the drug paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce it but at the appropriate dosage in the recommended packaging.
I hope this helps.
