Headache Accompanied By Nosebleeds?
doctor what if the headache is accompanied by a nosebleed ???
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headaches and nosebleeds can result from one or different causes. Some examples of conditions that can trigger these two complaints are:
Exposure to excessive heat Hypertension (high blood pressure) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Leukemia (blood cancer, usually affecting the white blood cells) Head injuries, especially those involving the area around the nose Nasal cavity tumors (benign or malignant) Dengue fever (dengue fever), etc. Although they can occur simultaneously due to the same cause, these two complaints may also occur due to different factors, for example:
Causes of headache: migraine, cluster headaches, hypoglycemia, viral or bacterial infections, brain tumors, stress, cerebral aneurysms Causes nosebleeds: drug side effects, exposure to dry air, atherosclerosis, blood clotting disorders, etc. In most cases, both pain head and nosebleeds are not caused by dangerous factors. However, if both complaints often recur, accompanied by intense headache intensity, do not subside with the consumption of common pain medications, and nosebleeds that last more than 15 minutes, you should check with your doctor right away. With direct physical evaluation. This is accompanied by supporting tests, for example blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, or MRIs, the best treatment can be determined so that your complaint can be resolved.
Our suggestions for now:
Get plenty of rest, don't do too much activity when the environment is hot when there is still a nosebleed, move to a cool place, rest, press your nose with your thumb and forefinger, compress the bridge of your nose with ice cubes, breathe through your mouth, and don't panic Take medicine paracetamol to relieve headaches if necessary Eat and drink regularly Increase foods rich in vitamin K Do not smoke, take illegal drugs, and also alcohol. Hope it helps.
