My Back Head Felt So Uncomfortable That It Made Me Nervous?
. My head has been feeling uncomfortable for 4 days, it doesn’t hurt, but it’s like between dizziness and drifting, but if I lie down I don’t feel floating or dizzy, my body all over my body also often twitches even to the back of the head, chin, eyelids, calves, thighs, my head is really uncomfortable, now I am easily startled by loud sounds, such as sensitive to loud sounds that come suddenly, is it due to lack of exercise or low blood pressure? The problem is I have already taken blood booster medicine, but still like that I am very worried. Please enlighten me, for the last 2 months I have been really stressed, thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Very severe psychological stress can trigger a variety of physical complaints. This condition in the medical realm is often termed somatoform disorder. The symptoms that appear can vary widely, including the sensation of dizziness, lightheadedness, twitching, shock, and other uncomfortable sensations that appear in various parts of the body. The difference between somatoform disorders and other organic disorders is that, in patients with somatoform disorders, there is no medical explanation that matches the appearance of complaints that the patient feels.
So, how can this stress affect physical complaints? This condition still needs to be investigated further. However, based on a lot of literature, this condition is related to the release of excessive electrical impulses from the brain to the rest of the body mediated by stress hormones. In general, by dealing with stress triggers, physical complaints that arise can also subside on their own.
Not only somatoform disorders, there can also be various complaints that you alai arise due to other triggers, such as anemia (low blood hemoglobin), hypotension (low blood pressure), hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), vertigo (spinning dizziness due to disorders of the brain or ears) in), viral or bacterial infections, dehydration, impaired heart function, alcoholism, side effects of drugs, lack of sleep, and so on.
We recommend that you do not take drugs carelessly (including blood-boosting drugs) before determining the cause of your complaint to the doctor. Check with your doctor first so that the exact cause of your complaint can be identified and given the best treatment. If it is true that the somatoform disorder is the trigger, the doctor will refer you to a psychiatric specialist (psychiatrist) for further assistance.
In the meantime, try these tips first:
Eat and drink sufficiently and regularly If you feel dizzy and high, drink a glass of sweet water (for example, sweet tea or syrup) Avoid changing positions suddenly, for example when you are about to rise from sleep to standing Avoid activities too tired Get plenty of rest Recognize stress triggers You and control it so you don't control yourself. Do more positive thinking, improve the quality of your worship. Do more activities that build your potential. Be diligent in exercising. Stay away from cigarettes, alcohol, excessive caffeine, and drugs.
