Dizziness And Nausea After Shampooing?
, why do I feel dizzy / headache after shampooing but am accompanied by nausea ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Many people complain of headaches after shampooing. In fact, in the medical world, there is no direct link between these two things. However, it's possible that exposure to cold temperatures on the head when shampooing with cold water can trigger muscle tension around the head that feels like pain. It could also be that the blood vessels in the scalp narrow in diameter due to cold water causing the cells in the scalp to become deprived of oxygen, releasing substances that modulate pain in the head.
You also need to know that in addition to the results of shampooing, you may also feel the headache and nausea that you feel is caused by other factors, not always directly related to the shampoo you do, for example:
Migraine (primary headache that feels throbbing, caused by neurovascular disorders in the brain)
Hormonal changes, for example just before menstruation or during early pregnancy
Vertigo (spinning dizziness, can be due to a disturbance in the center of balance in the inner ear or brain)
Viral or bacterial infections, for example ARI (acute respiratory infection), dengue fever, typhoid fever, meningitis
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Cerebral aneurysm (bulge of abnormal blood vessels in the brain that is prone to rupture)
Eye refraction disorders, eg nearsightedness, astigmatism
Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavity)
Tension headaches, and so on
Have you experienced complaints like this often? What steps do you usually take to relieve it? Is the pain that appears very intense? Do you also have fever, vomiting, stiff neck, seizures, blurred vision, or other complaints?
Given the very limited information you provide regarding your complaint, we recommend that you check your condition directly to a doctor or neurologist. That way, the doctor can give you the right treatment, whether by administering medication, or perhaps also supporting examinations. , such as X-rays, laboratory tests, CT scans, MRI, and so on.
At this time, relieve your headaches in the following ways:
Shampooing using warm water, avoid rubbing the scalp excessively
After shampooing, dry your head well, don't let it get wet for too long
Get plenty of rest, sleep with discipline
Don't stress, be sad, or panic excessively
Reduce first foods that can aggravate nausea, for example coconut milk, fruit, vegetables, caffeine
Don't drink alcohol
Don't smoke either
Hope it helps ..
