Hello Aristaa, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of headaches can occur by various possible causes. Therefore, treatment will also vary according to the cause of the symptoms. Some of the causes that cause complaints headaches:
Lack of rest
Excessive caffeine consumption
Too long exposure to hot weather
Certain medical conditions such as sinusitis, TTH, meningitis, anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and so on
For this reason, it is necessary to conduct a thorough examination starting from physical and nerve examination as well as additional examinations such as blood tests, X-ray images of the head, EEG, and so on. By knowing the exact cause, the handling will be more appropriate.
Things that can be done now include:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day
Enough rest 7-8 hours a day
Avoid pain triggers
Manage stress well
Avoid excessive smoking, alcohol and caffeine
Use pain relievers such as Paracetamol to reduce pain
If the complaint is still ongoing or burdensome (such as severe vomiting or loss of consciousness) go immediately to the doctor for further examination and treatment.
So, hopefully useful.
