Lower Right Headache?
Sorry, I want to ask. R nI am 16 years old. I often have headaches in the lower right side, I have felt it every day for about 1 year. It feels like the weight can’t stand up if I have a headache. Is that dangerous? What is it?
Hello, good afternoon Saffa ..
A long-standing or persistent (chronic) lower right headache can be caused by several possibilities, including:
chronic migraine, which is a migraine condition that recurs. Symptoms include pain on one side of the head (although it can affect both sides of the head), a moderate to severe throbbing feeling, exacerbated by daily physical activity, can lead to excessive sensitivity to light (glare), nausea, and even vomiting. Migraines are generally caused by genetic (hereditary), hormonal factors, consumption of foods high in tyramine (such as cheese, chocolate, and alcoholic drinks), psychological stress and physical stress (fatigue). hemicrania continua, characterized by a headache on one side of the head continuously every day with fluctuating intensity, may be accompanied by watery or red eyes on the affected side, a stuffy or runny nose, and other symptoms that resemble migraine headaches due to drug use rebound headaches headache related to a previous history of head injury headaches due to increased pressure in the head cavity, for example due to tumors, cysts, etc.
Seeing the many possible causes of the complaint you experience, we recommend that you check directly with a neurologist for further examination. We cannot conclude the diagnosis of your disease and conclude whether your condition is dangerous or not, without directly examining you. Considering that you have been experiencing this complaint for a long time (ie continuously every day in the past 1 year), then you should not delay to see a neurologist. The doctor will perform a thorough physical examination, including a special neurological examination (nerve section), and if necessary the doctor may order additional examinations such as a head CT scan or MRI.
Meanwhile, what you can do to relieve complaints while waiting for the doctor's appointment, include:
get enough rest by sleeping 7-8 hours a day avoid staying up late consume enough water 8-10 glasses per day limit consuming MSG foods and fast food avoid stress limit strenuous physical activity avoid alcoholic drinks do not smoke you can take pain relievers that are commercially available, such as paracetamol
