Headaches that feel dominant on the right side can indeed be related to a history of previous head injuries. Further evaluation is needed not only from interviews and physical examinations to determine this condition, but also from radiological examinations, such as X-rays, CT scans, to MRI.

Migraine (primary headache that feels throbbing due to abnormal blood vessels) Cluster headache (primary headache that disappears and occurs periodically over a period of time) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Hypertension (high blood pressure) Refractive disorders of the eye (eg nearsightedness) , astigmatism, farsightedness) Hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol) Structural abnormalities of the spine (eg scoliosis) Pinched neck nerves Brain tumors Temporal neuralgia Viral or bacterial infections Psychosomatic disorders, etc. interfere with sleep and make it difficult for you to carry out even light activities, you should immediately consult a neurologist to get the best treatment. The emergence of several danger signs in cases of headache, such as fever, vomiting, stiff neck, seizures, vision blurring, and loss of consciousness, important You make a reference not to delay the doctor's examination.

Also balance the consumption of these drugs with a healthy lifestyle, namely sleeping with discipline, eating on time, exercising regularly 3 to 4 times a week, reducing stress, drinking enough, and staying away from cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs.
