Headache To The Left Side Of The Body?
Hello, I want to ask about my mother who has head to toe pain, but only left pain. So the pain starts from the left temple, then the left eye, left hand, left breast, until the left foot. What’s it called, is it dangerous? How is the treatment? And if examined by a specialist doctor what? Thanks before.
Hello Alfina, Thank you for the question.
How long has this complaint occurred? Does your mother know the originator of this complaint? How does your mother describe this complaint? Does your mother experience other complaints such as tingling, numbness, or weakness in the left body?
To find out the right treatment, of course it must be known in advance whether the cause / medical condition underlying the complaint. Well, to ensure the cause / medical condition experienced by your mother, of course, it requires a direct examination by a doctor.
The following are some of the possible causes of complaints that your mother feels:
hernia nucleus pulposus in the cervical vertebrae
Please advise your mother to consult a neurologist before the symptoms get worse. The doctor will ask in more detail about the symptoms and your mother's medical history which will be followed by a physical examination by the doctor. Furthermore, the doctor will recommend other investigations such as blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, or MRI. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment.
