Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are headache complaints that you feel about 3 weeks ago that were triggered after you consume alcohol, so the complaints that you are feeling right now may be a side effect of alcohol consumption that you have never consumed. If after the first headache you consult a doctor, there may be less headache complaints, but by consuming alcohol again, can increase your headache complaints or even headache complaints can be more severe. So, an important step to take is not to consume alcohol anymore. Even if you consume in the amount of one bottle or a little, it still includes alcohol in your body with the side effects that you are experiencing right now.
In addition, the influence of alcohol on the digestive system, nervous system, liver, and your blood pressure can also trigger complaints of headaches that do not improve, so it is necessary to do further evaluation and examination by a neurologist to ensure your clinical condition and other side effects which increases your headache complaints.
Some alcohol side effects besides headaches, can be:
2. impaired coordination of motion
4. decreased body reaction
5. visual impairment
6. nausea, vomiting
7. high blood pressure
The presence of other illnesses can also increase complaints of headaches, such as complaints of cold cough, fever or ARI delivered by doctors from the results of examinations at the health center. If your blood pressure is normal, then further evaluation also needs to be done. So that treatment of other illnesses that aggravate and positive efforts must be continued, such as istitahat, avoid fatigue, stop alcohol. And if the drug runs out and the complaints are still persistent, further testing is needed to see a doctor.
Therefore, you should consult with your intern doctor and / or neurologist for further examination and evaluation. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations if needed. The results of the inspection will be a reference for care and handling. With routine control until it gets better, it is hoped that these complaints will improve and heal.
For now, several things you can do:
1. drink 1.5 liters of water -2 liters per day
2. multiply the consumption of fruit, such as papaya, apples, pears, or melons
3. don't eat too late
4. Avoid consumption of spicy foods and instant foods
5. do a stretch or light exercise
