Headache In The Back When Looking Down Accompanied By Drowsiness And Body Discomfort?
Hi, I am Nella 21th, I feel pain and heaviness in the back of the head. When I bent my head I felt very heavy as if I had hit something, for the past few days I also feel very drowsy and my body feels uncomfortable. Is this the result of fatigue? Please help and thank you in advance.
Hi Nella .. Thank you for the question given.
Headaches in the back can be caused by several things, for example:
Tension type headache
Stiffness of the neck muscles due to the wrong position when sitting or lying down
Meningitis / infection of the protective membrane of the brain
High directional pressure
After trauma or impact to the head
While easily drowsy and the body feels uncomfortable, it can be caused by lack of sleep, poor quality sleep, low blood sugar levels, dehydration, and low blood pressure. If your complaint continues, especially if the headache is getting worse accompanied by fever, nausea, vomiting, visual disturbances, then it's a good idea to see a doctor so that the doctor can carry out a physical examination directly and can be followed by a blood pressure check, blood sugar check, X-ray, or CT scan to make the diagnosis. So that the treatment given is appropriate and according to the cause of your complaint.
Meanwhile, some of the things you can do:
Avoid psychological stress and excessive fatigue
Eat regularly and get enough water
To reduce headaches you can take paracetamol according to the dosage
