Is It Possible That Migraine Headaches Are Currently Associated With A Head Collision 2 Years Ago?
Hello doctor years ago I had an accident and hit my left head. I had an examination but there was an injury meaningful after the accident I had a migrant in my left head but after taking the migraine medicine the pain disappeared. did not react but instead my left ear felt like deaf, jawbone was aching and my left eye seemed to want to come out. My Question 1. Is it affected by a collision 2 years ago ?? 2. Am I experiencing head trauma ?? Thank you in advance doctor
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The word 'trauma' that we know so far actually when viewed from a medical perspective has more than one meaning. The first meaning of trauma is a condition related to feelings, usually preceded by an event that is very imprinted in the heart and memory, and affect the psychological person in the future. The second meaning of trauma is injury, damage, or physical impact that occurs physically on the body. So from this understanding, you actually have experienced head trauma, that is, when you had an accident a few years ago.
But the results of the accident will not necessarily affect the conditions you are experiencing now. Pain in the jawbone, pain in the eyes, migraines that often recur and others can arise due to various causes, such as external ear infections, middle ear infections, TMJ (jaw joint) disorders, cluster headaches, or there are certain daily patterns that occur trigger the emergence of migraines, such as smoking or inhaling cigarette smoke, fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, often staying up late, eating foods that are too salty and so forth.
We suggest that in your case, you should check your condition with a general practitioner first. This is mainly because your complaint can lead to disorders of the hearing system handled by ENT doctors, and can lead to nervous system disorders that are handled by neurologists, or there may be other information that has not been conveyed. Therefore, with a direct examination thoroughly by a general practitioner, the details can be detected and you can be referred to the right specialist if necessary.
Meanwhile, get enough rest, avoid cigarette smoke, try not to get anything into the ear, be it fingers, cotton buds, or water, and may take painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs to help relieve the pain you feel. So, hopefully answering your question.
