Hello Doc, before I apologize, I want to ask. I have had a headache for 3 days, but the pain has moved, sometimes the left, sometimes the right, sometimes in the middle accompanied by back pain, if you look up with the head raised it feels hurts so much, what’s the cause? And what should be done? If therapy or using drugs, how and what is the medicine to relieve the pain? Thank you doc.

Thank you for the question.
Moving headaches accompanied by back pain may occur due to a disruption in your nerves, for example due to cervical spondylosis, infection or tumors that clamp nerves, multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia, nucleus pulposus herniation, and so on. It could also, this pain arises due to other factors, for example:
Tense head pain
Viral or bacterial infections
Other factors, such as dyspepsia, cluster headache, rheumatoid arthritis, unhealthy lifestyle, pleurisy, psychological disorders, metabolic disorders, and so on
Pain like this, if the intensity is mild, it seems you can handle it first independently, by taking paracetamol medication, warm compresses on the head to your back pain, diligently relaxing so that the mind and muscles are not tense, regularly exercising, eating more regularly, increasing intake of B complex vitamins in your diet, be diligent in eating fruits and vegetables, limit consumption of foods that contain cholesterol and bad fats, don't stress, maintain ideal body weight, also maintain your posture in activities to remain ergonomic.
If with the steps above the pain does not also improve or if you find signs of danger, such as high fever for more than 3 days, numbness / weakness / paralysis of the locomotor, vomiting, double vision / blurry, mental confusion, decreased consciousness, and so on , immediately check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist so that further treatment is given according to the cause of the complaint huh ..
I hope this helps.
