Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com

There are various factors that can cause left-sided headaches, including:
• Migraine: one side of the head feels throbbing, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision
• Sinusitis: due to inflammation in the lining of the sinuses
• Tension headache: headache feels dull and feels like a knot
• Cluster headaches: can be triggered by hot weather, cigarette smoke, glare
• Ear infections
• Disorders of cerebral blood vessels
• Brain tumor
• Stroke

Treatment for a headache depends on the cause of the headache itself. You should consult with a neurologist to find out the cause of the headache you are experiencing. The doctor will ask about the complaints you are experiencing, physical examination, neurological examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests, CT scans.

Here are some tips you can do to reduce symptoms:
- Get enough rest
- Sufficient water needs (8-10 glasses) to prevent dehydration which can aggravate headaches
- Eat regularly
- Limit tiring activities
- Take pain relievers if the pain is unbearable such as paracetamol, ibuprofen.
However, it should be noted that this drug only serves to reduce symptoms, therefore if your complaints do not improve, you should consult a doctor.

That's my answer, I hope it's useful.
Regards, Dr. Sylvia
