Headache If Playing Handphone Or Watching Television For Too Long?
Hello good afternoon
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
We understand the concerns that you feel.
Headaches can occur due to various causes, including:
Migraine: throbbing headache. Can be affected by stress, fatigue, food, and hormonal conditions in women. Some sufferers are accompanied by complaints of nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light / photophobia, weakness etc.
Tension type headache (TTH): normal headache, shock, such as being bound, the intensity is not too severe but can interfere with activities
Cluster type headache: headaches that are felt quite severe, can be accompanied by red eyes.
Anemia: decreased blood hemoglobin levels can cause headaches. Women are prone to anemia, especially for those who are still menstruating every month.
Vertigo is characterized by spinning dizziness, can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and impaired balance
Disorders of the eye such as refractive disorders include nearsightedness, or farsightedness
Related to your question, the suspicion of illness experienced by your brother can be caused by tension headaches (TTH), migraines or eye disorders. However, too long staring at the screen of mobile phones and television can also trigger tired eyes and have an impact on dry eye conditions. Of course this can also trigger the onset of symptoms. Staring at the screen for too long will minimize the blink reflex so that it will make the production of the eyes less fluid which causes the eyes to feel sore, red, runny to the point of a headache.
Other conditions such as dehydration, fatigue and lack of sleep and psychological stress that you experience also aggravate the complaints.
Related to handling, the trigger factors must be removed, the use of anti-pain drugs to reduce complaints and take a break by avoiding activities / work such as playing too long with a cellphone or television screen.
Here are some things you can do at home to reduce complaints and prevent complaints from reappearing:
Avoid fatigue and stress
Manage your stress well
Avoid foods or other causes that can trigger your headaches
Eat nutritious and balanced food
Get enough rest
Avoiding staying up too often
Avoid caffeine consumption
Take vitamin and iron supplements every day
Avoid spicy, sour, coconut milk, high in fat and salt.
Inadequate daily body fluid needs
Limit the use of mobile phones, laptops and televisions
Take pain relievers like Paracetamol
Beware if the headache is felt very severe, lasts for months to months and is accompanied by impaired vision, hearing, and weakness of the side of the body, then you should immediately consult your nearest doctor. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
