Frequent Headaches, Neck Strain And Sensitive Eyes When Exposed To Light?
Afternoon. I once had an accident and there was a collision in the back of my head. Since then I have had frequent or easy headaches. Now I am also easily sleepy. Neck is tense because my job is driving a motorbike all day. However, a few days ago a friend of mine died he said because of meningitis. Same features. Sometimes my left eye is sensitive to light. Do you think this is one of the characteristics of meningitis or open patients? And if I may ask for advice for prevention. thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Meningitis is an infection of the lining of the brain or spinal cord. Infection can be caused by viruses, bacteria and parasites. The risk of developing this disease is increased in someone who has immunocompromise (such as HIV, chronic diseases, etc.) Someone who experiences these symptoms will appear, in the form of high fever, stiff neck, increasingly severe headaches, sensitivity to light, difficulty concentrating, difficulty concentrating in seizures and others, you can read more here.
I suggest you should consult a neurologist. It could be your complaint due to other things that need immediate treatment. Like, brain hemorrhage or hematoma due to head injury.
To be able to find out the patient's disease, the doctor may need a supporting examination such as a CT scan of the head.
Thus, hopefully useful
