Headaches Do Not Go Away At The Stage Of Healing Dengue Fever Is It Natural?
Good evening, I want to ask. My mother, age 45, has DHF, has been hospitalized, now my mother is in the healing stage. However, my mother’s headaches never go away. Is that natural? My mother came home from the hospital already from 3 days ago. Thank you.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Headaches are a common symptom that many people complain about. At the time of high fever, for example in DHF can also cause headaches, but usually complaints improve after the basic disease is resolved. There are generally 2 headaches, namely primary headaches, headaches that arise without the underlying disease and secondary headaches, namely headaches that arise as symptoms of other diseases. Primary headaches are usually caused by a disruption in the structure in the head that is sensitive to pain and is not a symptom due to other diseases. Some types of primary headaches include:
Tension headaches, usually felt like heavy or bound head, can be caused by depression, lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, irregular eating patterns, alcohol consumption, and others. Migraine, characterized by throbbing headaches on one or both sides of the head. Headaches, characterized by severe headaches, spread to the eyes. Secondary headaches are usually caused by the following conditions:
Flu Fever Tooth problems Sinusitis Ear infections Hormonal changes in women for example after taking birth control pills Impaired vision such as glaucoma Blockage of blood vessels in the brain Inflammation of the brain Meningitis and others Some factors that can increase the risk of headache complaints include:
Obesity or excess body weight High blood pressure, Frequent consumption of pain medications, Depression, Sleep disorders, etc. If the headache is felt to be mild can be helped with adequate rest, consumption of healthy and nutritious food, adequate fluid requirements, control of risk factors as mentioned earlier, and can be helped by taking over-the-counter pain relievers at pharmacies. If complaints of pain do not decrease, headaches are felt so severe that it interferes with daily activities, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, MRI, and others as needed. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions and causes of complaints.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
