Headache Between The Eyes, Pain Around The Back Of The Neck And Nausea?
I’m farida 22 years old. Lately I often feel dizzy. Pain around the neck especially the back of the neck. And pain in the middle of the head between the eyes. Feel pain when looking up or ducking, easily tired, and when it’s dizzy so feel nauseous. I went to the doctor but the doctor said that it could be the effect of the eyes (because my eyes are minus) or stomach acid. Why do you think that? And what can be done to reduce the pain? I have an ulcer. Thanks.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Tension Type Headache (TTH) is a form of headache associated with an increase in stress. Stress conditions cause stiffness in the muscles of the head, neck, shoulders, and head vascularization resulting in headaches as well.
This headache is more common in women than men and mostly attacks young adults. Complaints of pain are spread widely and with mild to moderate intensity. Pain is initially felt by the patient in the back of the neck and then spreads to the back of the head and then spreads to the front.
There were no significant findings on a physical examination to diagnose this tension-strained headache. Diagnosis is based on symptoms and normal physical examination. Supporting symptoms are the underlying psychological factors and characteristics of headache symptoms (type, location, frequency and duration of pain).
Treatment should be directed to the underlying disease when there is clearly an anxiety disorder or even depression, by avoiding the processor or with anti-anxiety or anti-depression medication if the complaint is severe in addition to the treatment of headache according to doctor's recommendations. Pain relievers that can be used are paracetamol, or non-steroidal anti-pain medications such as ibuprofen or ketoprofen. However, most pain medications have an irritating effect on the gastric mucosa, so it is advisable to consult the condition with your doctor. To reduce symptoms, you can also apply compresses to the affected muscles, with a towel soaked in warm or cold water.
That's all, hope you can help
