Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headache that is preceded by fever usually indicates an infection. There are so many infections that can cause complaints like this, for example ISPA (acute respiratory infections), dengue fever, chikungunya, ear infections, dental and gum infections, meningitis, encephalitis, and so on. In addition to fever and headache, often this infection will also trigger muscle pain and joints, weakness, fatigue, and other sensations that are not comfortable with the patient's activities become disrupted.
In addition to infections, very intense headaches can also occur due to migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, brain tumors, cerebral aneurysms, hypertension, head injuries, strokes, neck nerve nerves, mental disorders, and so on.
If true this headache appears with an unbearable intensity, especially for example accompanied by other complaints, such as vomiting, double vision or blurry, stiff neck, convulsions, decreased consciousness, and a history of head or neck injuries, you better not to hold it continuously . Consult yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist so that a deeper evaluation of the possible causes is evaluated. Further tests, such as x-rays, laboratories, CT scans, MRI, etc. doctors can also recommend if you suspect a serious condition. The initial handling that you should live is:
First take over-the-counter pain relievers on the market, such as those containing paracetamol
Avoid consumption of caffeinated drinks, flavored foods, and foods that contain excessive salt
Stay away from cigarettes, alcohol, and don't take drugs carelessly
Expand relaxation, do not stress or worry too much
Get used to also get enough and regular sleep, don't stay up
Eat regularly, don't be late
Hope this helps ...
