Headache After Falling Coconut?
Good evening, I want to ask about 2 months ago the father fell in a coconut right on his head. The scanning was done, the doctor said, there was a little blood clot so I only gave the medicine, the blood would run out on its own. Besides that, he was also given medicine for dizziness, he said, he drank it when he was dizzy. R nBut until now I still feel dizzy. Who used to take his dizziness medication can now be once a day once a day. Please explain, thank you,
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Dizziness is a term used to describe a condition that is dizzy, loss of balance, or about to pass out. Among the symptoms of dizziness are the sensation of floating or having a heavy head, going to faint, feeling as if the surroundings are moving or spinning, feeling dizzy or losing balance.
This condition is often caused by unknown reasons, but among the factors that increase a person's chances of feeling dizzy are:
Circulatory problems, such as the heart not pumping enough blood to the brain, changing positions too quickly, and minor strokes.
Infection of nerves that regulate balance
Migraine or headache characterized on only one side of the head
Lack of blood or anemia
Drug side effects
Low blood sugar levels
Lack of fluids
In your father's case, the symptoms you feel may indeed be related to a history of being hit by a coconut, but that does not rule out another medical condition that occurred after being hit by a coconut. So our advice is to check with a neurologist, so that the neurologist can later determine which one is the real cause of the headache. The neurologist may do another CT scan of your father's head to check for the development of a blood clot 2 months ago.
Meanwhile, our advice is to tell your father not to be too active, avoid cigarette smoke and stress, reduce salt consumption, consume more water, get enough sleep, and eat more fruits and vegetables. Your father may temporarily take over-the-counter painkillers while still reading the instructions for use listed. Hopefully your father will get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
