Is A Headache After Hitting At The Age Of 19 Dangerous?
morning. I am a 19 year old student. yesterday afternoon around 12 o’clock my right head hit hard enough against the wooden board when I looked down and was about to stand up. but the pain disappeared after I rubbed my head for a while. I just started feeling dizzy around 17:00. after I slept for a long time, this morning I felt a headache more than yesterday. I feel pain in the head only on the right and my neck also aches and aches. there is no other disturbing thing that I feel but I have never felt a headache like this. but my activities are also not too disturbed. Is my disease dangerous? May I take the usual headache medicine to ease my headache? thx.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hard impact on the head can certainly leave pain in the head. Depending on the mechanism and severity of the impact, this condition may or may not be dangerous. In general, if you don't feel extreme, unbearable headaches, nausea and vomiting, stiff neck, blurred vision, and a variety of other severe complaints, often this condition is not dangerous. You can try first to do the following steps so that your headaches subside:
Take pain relievers that are sold freely on the market, such as those containing paracetamol
Compress the painful head area and achy neck with warm water
Rest more, raising the side of the head that hurts during sleep
Do not always activities too tired
Minimize the use of gadgets first
Eat and drink with discipline
If with the steps above your complaint still doesn't improve, we recommend that you consult yourself directly to a doctor or neurologist. It is feared, the headaches that you experience occur due to more serious conditions, both related to head injuries that you have experienced before, or can also be due to other causes, such as viral or bacterial infections, cerebral aneurysms, migraines, cluster headaches, hypertension, and so on . If necessary, the doctor may perform several supporting tests, such as x-rays, laboratory tests, CT scans, and so on to make the right diagnosis.
Hope this helps ...
