Hello Widy, thank you for your question
Migraine is a headache that is characteristic of hitting one side of the head and feeling throbbing. However, there are times when a migraine can appear on both sides of the head. The level of pain caused by migraines is moderate to severe, so it often interferes with daily activities. It is not uncommon for migraines to be accompanied by additional symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity / sensitivity to light.
Migraine is included as a primary headache for which the underlying cause is not certain. Some of the risk factors that should be avoided are:
hormonal changes, especially in women before menstruation or menopause
irregular eating patterns
food / drink containing caffeine (tea, coffee) and tyramine (cheese)
lack of body fluids (dehydration)
environment, such as:
stay for a long time in front of a flashing screen (computer, TV)
the sound is too loud or the light is too bright
extreme weather or climate change
irregular working time
physical activity that is too strenuous
drug side effects
To treat and prevent migraines at the same time, adopt a healthy lifestyle by avoiding the various factors above. If the complaint is very disturbing, considering that you are currently breastfeeding, a painkiller that is safe for you to take is paracetamol or ibuprofen. Both are classified as over-the-counter drugs that can be obtained at a pharmacy. If the complaints do not go away, it is better if you see a neurologist for further examination and treatment. If the complaint of headache is very severe, the doctor may recommend a CT-scan of the head to confirm the diagnosis and the underlying cause.
