Then I drank ginger, when I drank ginger my dizziness disappeared for just a few hours, but when I didn’t drink the dizziness came back. How is it, please solve it.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A head that feels dizzy like a grip, especially at the back close to the neck, can indicate tension type headaches. This condition can be felt with moderate to severe intensity. Usually, sufferers will feel a painful sensation as if they are tightly tied, which can be felt in the front or back of the head, and can even spread to the back or forehead area. This condition can be episodic (improves in less than 15 days) or chronic (lasts 15 days or more).
The exact cause of tension headaches is unknown. However, excessive contraction of the facial, head and neck muscles in sufferers is thought to be related to psychological stress, for example when experiencing stress, panic, or excessive fear. If not handled properly, tension headaches can reduce a person's productivity, for example in working, studying, and carrying out other daily functions. Therefore, proper handling is needed.
In addition to tension headaches, your complaint may also occur due to other factors, for example:
Migraine (primary headache that feels throbbing due to neurovascular disorders) Hypertension (high blood pressure) Hypercholesterolemia (high blood cholesterol) Cerebral aneurysm (bulging of abnormal blood vessels in the brain that is prone to rupture) Tinnitus (ringing in the ears, may be associated with excessive noise exposure , atherosclerosis, middle ear disorders, tumors, side effects of drugs, etc.) Brain tumors Viral or bacterial infections (for example, dengue fever, meningitis) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), etc. If the complaint does not improve with rest, or danger signs appear, such as headaches with very great intensity, fever, neck stiffness, mental disorders, seizures, double vision, weakness, numbness, speech disturbances, or a history of previous head injuries, you should see your doctor right away. If after going through a physical examination and support (for example blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, MRI) the doctor feels there is a serious abnormality, possibly You will be referred to a neurologist for further treatment.
