Pain And Numbness In The Back Of The Neck And Headaches?
Good evening, I want to ask A few months ago my friend had a motorcycle accident but did not suffer any severe injuries, but after that he often complained of headaches and pain in the back of his neck accompanied by numbness in his neck. His mother has a history of brain cancer. Do you think my friend is sick?
Good evening Rahmahdepisari, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints felt by your friends can be caused by several conditions such as:
Tense head pain
Impaired nerve function (neuropathy)
Injury to the spinal cord which serves to supply the neck
Post-accident head injury
To find out what is the cause of your friend's complaints, it is recommended that you take your friend for further examination to the doctor. The doctor will evaluate the physical condition and complaints of your friend further to determine what conditions are experienced by your friend. Your doctor may also suggest additional tests such as a head CT scan, MRI of the spinal cord or other tests to ascertain the cause of your friend's complaints, and only then can an appropriate treatment be determined. If necessary, the doctor will refer your friend to a neurologist or other specialist according to his condition to ensure your etman gets optimal therapy.
In the meantime, your friend is advised to keep doing activities as usual, and there are no certain food restrictions for the conditions. If a complaint is being felt, you should rest for a while. It is also recommended to avoid excessive stress and make sure you get adequate nutrition every day.
If the complaint is felt even more severe, especially when coughing or straining, accompanied by severe vomiting, seizures, decreased consciousness, fever, weakness of certain body parts or paralysis of body parts, then immediately bring your friend to the nearest hospital emergency room to get first aid.
I hope this helps.
