Continuous Migraine, What Are The Symptoms Of Chronic Pain?
Excuse me, I want to ask, I am 16 years old and I often have headaches. Sometimes the head is right or left. But the pain is in the back, and it feels throbbing but not too painful. Usually it lasts 1-2 hours and I think this happens too often for several days. If I don’t take headache relief, the pain does not go away, what should I do? Do you have to go to the hospital? Please answer, thank you.

Pulsating pain that feels dominant on one side of the head alternately can indeed be part of a migraine. Many experts suspect this condition occurs related to neurovascular disorders in the brain and its relation to trigeminal nerve fibers. Not only pain, migraine sufferers often also experience nausea, vomiting, more sensitive to light, difficulty sleeping, and disturbance of sensation which is often called aura. Migraine is often not a serious condition. However, if repeated very often, obviously this can greatly reduce the quality of life of sufferers.
Not only migraines, several other conditions, such as cluster headaches, cerebral aneurysms, occipital neuralgia, tension headaches, brain tumors, hypertension, head injuries, viral or bacterial infections, mental disorders, etc. can also cause headaches as you experience currently.
For more details, you can check your complaint directly to a doctor or neurologist. Further examination, such as X-ray, CT scan, MRI, laboratory, etc. can be done by a doctor if he suspects that there is a more serious condition. In the meantime, you can take the following steps to improve complaints:
Take pain relievers that are safe for consumption freely, for example paracetamol
Don't overeat foods that contain salt, flavorings, strong odors, especially caffeinated and alcoholic drinks
No stress, sadness, or excessive anxiety
Expand to exercise
Sleep more regularly, do not get too tired physical activity
Stay away from cigarettes
Do not carelessly take other medicines without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
