But it often happens when I have activities like when I go home to school. That time had already been told to the doctor, but the doctor said it was just sick because I was wrong, I was confused myself when I was often wrong. I also don’t feel sick when I go to sleep. What does it hurt? thank you before.

background and characteristics of the typical headache TTH symptoms above.
Treatment should be directed to the underlying disease when there is clearly an anxiety disorder or even depression. It is better to manage stress well, for example by multiplying activities or hobbies that are liked. Simple pain relief as a short-term treatment can also be used to reduce complaints such as paracetamol, or non-steroidal anti-pain such as ibuprofen or ketoprofen.
