Hi Sutan, good morning. Thank you for your question.
Headache is a pain in the head that appears for various reasons. In most cases, headaches are not serious and can be treated easily such as taking painkillers, accompanied by drinking enough water and getting more rest. But even so, there are also some types of headaches that can be life-threatening.
Headaches are divided into 2 types:
Primary headaches are the most common headaches for which no cause is known, such as migraine, tension-type headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, great giant arteritis, and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are headaches with known causes, such as hypertension, post-trauma, meningitis, etc. Based on what you've said, the most likely cause of headaches is migraines. Migraine is a moderate to severe headache that feels throbbing that generally only affects one side of the head but can also be on both sides of the head and even attacks the neck of the patient. Migraine triggers are:
- Hormonal factors. Especially occurs in some women who menstruate
- + + Consumption of certain foods and drinks such as caffeine , chocolate , season season cheese because of MSG and alcohol - Irregular eating habits and the presence of stomach ulcers Migraine itself is divided into 2, namely:
- Migraine without aura ( common migraine ) is a headache accompanied by signs or aura - Migraine with aura (classic migraine) is a migraine headache accompanied by initial symptoms before the headache occurs which usually begins with a dark vision. what type of headache you are complaining about, I suggest you to consult a doctor or a neurologist, especially if your complaints do not subside.
