Hello, thanks for the question.
Headaches are a common symptom that many complain about and many causes. Broadly speaking, the causes of our headaches are divided into two, namely primary and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are headaches that arise in the absence of the underlying disease, while secondary headaches arise as symptoms of other diseases. Primary headaches are usually caused by a disruption in the structure in the head that is sensitive to pain and is not a symptom due to other diseases. Some types of primary headaches include:
Tension headaches, usually felt like a heavy head or bound, can be caused by depression, lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, irregular eating patterns, consuming alcohol, and others.
Migraine, characterized by throbbing headaches, such as prickling on one or both sides of the head.
Headache pain, characterized by severe headaches, spreads to the eyes, usually causing the eyes to turn red.
Secondary headaches are usually caused by the following conditions:
Eating food or drinks that are too cold suddenly
Hormonal changes in women for example after taking birth control pills
Impaired vision such as glaucoma
Blockage of blood vessels in the brain
Inflammation of the brain
Head, forehead, face and nose pain are most often caused by sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses. The sinuses are the cavities located behind the forehead bones, the inside structure of the cheekbones, both sides of the nose, and behind the eyes. Inflammation of these cavities will cause head and face pain. The pain will cause sympathetic nerve fiber activity to increase, so that the heart will palpitations, anxiety, and difficulty focusing. Discharge of blood from the genitals can be caused by several things, for example due to stress, diseases of the reproductive organs, drastic increase or decrease in body weight, irregular eating patterns, use of hormonal birth control (birth control pills, birth control injections, implants, etc.) . Obesity or excess body weight, high blood pressure, frequent pain medication, depression, the habit of consuming too much caffeine, have sleep disorders, etc. can increase the risk of developing these complaints. If the headache is felt to be mild, it can be helped by adequate rest, consumption of healthy and nutritious food, adequate fluid requirements, control of risk factors as mentioned earlier, and can be helped by the consumption of pain medications sold freely at pharmacies. If complaints do not decrease, the headache is felt so severe that it interferes with daily activities, causing the body to feel unwell between headaches, severe headaches accompanied by other symptoms such as neck stiffness, numbness, paralysis on one side of the body , fainting, difficult to see, difficult to talk and understand the conversation or difficulty walking, or accompanied by high fever or menstruation lasts a long time and continuously should consult a doctor.
