How To Deal With Headaches After Using Ear Headphones For Too Long?
This is the first time I bought over ear headphones, if they are used for too long, my head hurts, the pain is like being pressed, all this time using in ear earphones, so this is the first time using over ear headphones. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The use of ear headphones can indeed trigger headaches. This pain can arise due to the following factors:
Exposure to excessive and continuous noise Excessive pressure on the head, for example due to the use of over ear headphones that are too tight for a long time Inflammation of the ears, can occur if the ear headphones you use are not clean, causing ear infections (otitis externa or otitis media ), etc. Not only headaches, you should also not use excessive ear headphones because they can cause your hearing function to gradually decrease.
The pain caused by using ear headphones alone should get better after you no longer use the ear headphones. Try to do the following steps so that the pain does not persist:
Only use ear headphones if absolutely necessary. Adjust the volume in the ear headphones that you use so that they are not too loud Choose ear headphones that are according to your head size, not too tight If you feel a headache when using ear headphones, stop using them first and rest Get enough sleep and regularly Eat with discipline Routine exercise Increase relaxation, stay away from stress Do not consume alcohol and drugs carelessly If with the above steps your headache does not improve, or other complaints arise, such as decreased hearing function, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) , fever, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, blurry vision, abnormal discharge from the ear, etc., you should not take it lightly. Check with your doctor directly to give you the best treatment according to the conditions that underlie your complaint. If necessary, your doctor may refer you to an ENT specialist or neurologist for further treatment.
Hope this helps ...
