Hello, Endah Mwaty, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headaches can be caused by primary or secondary headaches. Called a primary headache is if there is no other cause outside the head, while in secondary headaches there is a definite cause that causes the headache, for example a head tumor, infection of the brain/brain membrane, infections such as dengue fever or sinusitis, head injury, stroke, or other circumstances.
To determine the cause, it takes a more complete explanation of your symptoms by consulting a doctor directly. In addition, a physical examination and supporting examinations (if needed) such as complete blood tests and head photographs are required.
Some of the accompanying symptoms below are things to watch out for if you have a headache and should immediately consult your doctor:
2. Stiff in the neck
3. Fainting, seizures, loss of consciousness
4. Vomiting in the morning
5. Headaches are getting worse and worse
6. The worst headache in your life
7. Weakness of half the body
8. Unable to speak
9. Severe headache upon waking up
If there are no symptoms and the results of the examination show no signs of abnormality, it can be referred to as a primary headache. There are 3 types of primary headaches, namely tension-type headache, migraine, and cluster.
So that headaches are lighter, you can try taking paracetamol, getting enough rest, resting your mind by avoiding stress, and exercising regularly.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
