I am 17 years old, I have frequent headaches. Now the headache is heavy and dizzy, feels pressure, sometimes dizziness in the eye area, sometimes on the forehead and temples, sometimes entirely, often to the point of nausea without vomiting. then when moving it gets worse the pain, it feels like the head is pressed firmly and dizziness (difficult to balance) so you can’t move much if you have a headache. There are many causes of headaches. In this case, I think the cause is what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the head, which extends to the eye area, forehead, temples, and the entire head area, and is often accompanied by nausea, can indeed occur for many reasons. However, if you often feel like your head is being pressed so hard that it is difficult to do activities, then this could be a sign of a tension type headache.
Tension headaches are one of the primary headaches, which are caused by abnormalities in the structure of the head itself. The cause of this headache is not clear. However, many experts often attribute this headache to excessive muscle contraction around the face, neck and head as a whole that is affected by emotional changes, psychological stress, or stress. In addition, excessive sensitivity in feeling pain sensations is also thought to trigger this complaint. Tension headaches are often felt in the head area, especially around the forehead and the right and left sides of the head. However, this headache can also spread to the top of the head, neck, and shoulders. Episodes of pain from tension headaches can last for a short time (less than 30 minutes), but can also last chronically for more than 2 weeks.
In addition to tension headaches, you may also feel the complaints that occur due to other factors, for example:
Migraine Cluster headaches Sinusitis Brain tumors Meningitis Viral or other bacterial infections, such as dengue fever, influenza Dyspepsia Cerebral aneurysm Hypoglycemia Vertigo, etc. It is better if you have your complaint checked directly with a neurologist. The doctor will perform a comprehensive examination, including also follow-up examinations, such as x-rays, blood tests, CT scans, or MRI if needed to determine the best treatment for your complaint. As an initial handling effort, you can first consume over-the-counter pain relievers, for example those containing paracetamol, to deal with complaints. Increase your rest time of about 6 to 8 hours a day, reduce first activities that are too heavy. Eat regularly coupled with adequate drinking and regular exercise. Keep yourself away from excessive psychological pressure, relax and do things that keep you from stress. Avoid habits of unhealthy lifestyles, such as for too long struggling with gadgets, smoking, consuming alcohol, or also using illegal drugs.
