Headaches To Watery Eyes?
Doctor why if I have a headache, I often get pain in my forehead and often yawn so that my eyes water. Is there a lack of oxygen can cause headaches
Hello, thanks for the question.
Headaches are a symptom that many people complain about. There are two headaches, namely, primary and secondary headaches. Primary headaches are headaches that arise in the absence of the underlying disease, while secondary headaches arise as symptoms of other diseases. Primary headaches are usually caused by disorders of the structure on the head that are sensitive to pain and are not a symptom of other diseases, secondary headaches for example are caused by sinusitis (usually characterized by pain in the forehead, cheeks, in the inner eye, etc. depending on which sinuses are affected), flu, ear disorders, eye disorders (eg farsightedness, glaucoma, etc.), blockage of blood vessels in the brain, brain infections, and others. Whereas primary headaches, we group them into 3, namely:
Tension headaches, usually felt like a heavy head or bound, can be caused by depression, lack of sleep, stress, dehydration, irregular eating patterns, consuming alcohol, and others. Migraine, characterized by throbbing headaches on one or both sides of the head. Headache pain, characterized by severe headaches, spreads to the eyes, making the eyes red and runny. The body lacks oxygen, especially the brain, obesity or excess weight, high blood pressure, frequent pain medication, depression, the habit of consuming too much caffeine, have sleep disorders, etc. can increase the risk of headache complaints. If the headache is felt mild, you can take pain relievers that can be bought freely at the pharmacy and can be assisted with adequate rest, consumption of healthy and nutritious food, adequate fluid requirements, and control of risk factors as mentioned earlier. However, if pain complaints are not reduced, headaches are felt so severe that it interferes with daily activities, causes the body to feel unwell between headaches, severe headaches accompanied by other symptoms such as neck stiffness, numbness, paralysis on one side of the body, fainting, difficulty see, difficult to talk and understand the conversation or difficulty walking, or accompanied by high fever 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. Handling of cluster headaches is usually by giving pure oxygen, after giving oxygen complaints will usually improve.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
