Pain In The Left Eye And Head In Patients With Anemia?
, I have a month of anemia. If my left eye hurts, my left brain is tense, what is anemia? Is that a serious illness?
Hello, Mufida Zeban, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Anemia is a condition where the level of hemoglobin or red blood cells in the body is lower than normal. The normal limit of hemoglobin and red blood cells depends on gender, age, and physical condition (eg pregnancy). Frequent symptoms of anemia are weakness, lethargy, palpitations, headaches, spasms, dizziness, dizziness, etc. To diagnose anemia, a physical examination and supporting tests such as a complete blood test are needed. Anemia can be caused by malnutrition (iron, vitamin B12, folic acid), bleeding, disorders of blood cell formation, abnormalities in red blood cell structure, infections, certain drugs, etc. To determine the type of cause of anemia, a more complex examination is needed according to the patient's disease history and findings from a physical examination that has been done. For example, from the results of the examination, the doctor suspects that the patient has an iron deficiency, so the doctor will suggest an iron profile test to prove it.
Meanwhile, pain in the left eye and left head can be caused by many possibilities, for example: refractive disorders, migraine, cluster headache, glaucoma, stroke, lump / tumor on the head. To determine the cause, more complete data is needed about the symptoms and the course of the disease being experienced, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as CT-scan, examination of eye pressure, etc. Treatment depends on the cause.
To relieve the symptoms of pain, you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen and rest your eye use. If there is visual disturbances, red eyes, watery, unable to see, very painful head, nausea / vomiting, weakness of half of the body, convulsions, fainting, you should immediately see a doctor to be treated according to your condition.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
