Frequent Causes Of Severe Headaches To Fainting?
Hi, I’m Windi, 21 years old. Since the age of 18, I often have severe headaches and even fainted.. At first my vision seemed far away, after a while my eyes became blurry and even when I couldn’t see clearly, I was blurry.. (sometimes right, sometimes left). Not long after, my vision changed to become clear again but it continued to the head (migraine) very little even until I vomited and fainted.. krkr why huh? Thank you..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A severe headache that is preceded by visual disturbances, which include the sensation of seeing far away, blurry, then dark, and fainting, may indicate that you have a migraine with aura. Migraine itself is one type of primary headache whose trigger is related to vascular phenomena, namely in the form of vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels) followed by vasodilation (widening of blood vessels) alternately, causing inflammation in the brain. The aura is a sensory symptom that often precedes a migraine. This condition can be in the form of impaired vision, smell, taste, and so on. Migraines often make sufferers feel nauseous and even faint.
There are several conditions that increase a person's risk of experiencing migraines, one of which is genetic (congenital). People with a family history of migraines are at higher risk for migraines. In addition, other factors, such as hormonal changes (eg before menstruation or during pregnancy), stress, lack of sleep, smoking, alcohol consumption, unhealthy eating patterns, a history of head injury, an unfavorable environment, and side effects of certain drugs and foods can also contribute to this. It also triggers migraines.
In addition to migraines, your complaints may also arise due to other causes, such as cerebral aneurysms, brain tumors, cluster headaches, sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), glaucoma, meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain), viral or bacterial infections, somatoform disorders, dyspepsia (inflammation of the lining of the brain). stomach acid), and so on.
Given that complaints often make you lose consciousness, you should immediately go to a neurologist for a thorough examination, including through blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. That way, the right treatment can be done according to your condition.
In the meantime, you should do a healthy lifestyle so that complaints do not recur. The trick is to sleep more regularly, exercise more diligently, eat with discipline, avoid excessive stress, and drink enough to drink 1 to 2 liters per day. Avoid being in an uncomfortable environment, for example one that is too noisy, glare, stuffy, and so on. Also limit the consumption of caffeine, foods containing MSG, and avoid alcohol. If the headache reappears, relieve it first by taking paracetamol before seeing a doctor.
Hope it helps ya..
