Thank you for the question.
Pain in the right and left head, accompanied by excessive loss, is most often caused by severe mental stress, for example when you are exposed to problems that make you sad, anxious, or afraid of excessive. In mild cases, these complaints will usually subside after your mental condition has stabilized. However, if you experience mental stress associated with certain more severe psychiatric disorders (such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, delusional disorder, somatoform disorder, excessive anxiety disorder, etc.), then of course healing can last longer if not treated directly by a doctor.
