Am I sitting wrong? and what does my headache have to do with low blood pressure? or not drinking enough? please explain, thank you
Thank you for the question.
Headaches can be caused by many things, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing, such as the long duration of the headache, the part of the head that hurts, the characteristics of the headache (throbbing, feeling bound, or extreme pain), and accompanying symptoms such as nausea / vomiting, eyes / runny nose, sensitive to light, pain in the face, and factors that trigger headaches, such as activity or stress.
Basically, headaches are caused by several things such as:
Migraine. Tension type headache, or tension-like headache. Cluster headache, severe headache characterized by watery eyes / nose. Hypertension. Postural hypotension (caused by sudden changes in position, for example from squatting to standing). In rare cases, headaches can also be caused by infections in brain structures or brain tumors. Likewise with low back pain that needs to be explained again by other symptoms, such as the location of low back pain (on both hips, or dominant on the back), pain during urination, pain during menstruation, a history of falls, and others. Pain in the waist is usually caused by factors often lifting heavy objects, sitting too long, obesity, smoking, or a history of falls. In addition, back pain can also be caused by:
Back injury. Pinched nerve. Scoliosis. Urinary tract infections or urinary tract stones. Here are some suggestions that you can do to reduce headaches and waist:
Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol. Pay attention to the factors that affect headaches and waist, and manage these factors. Avoid long periods of continuous sitting, stretching your neck, back, and waist, at least one hour after long sitting. Do not sit bent or vice versa, use a cushion on your back to lean on. Reduce weight or achieve ideal body weight. Enough sleep, a minimum of 6-8 hours per day. Drink enough, a minimum of 2-3L per day. If you have done the above recommendations but the symptoms still continue for weeks or even months, you can go directly to the doctor so that the doctor will explore further complaints and conduct investigations such as X-rays at the waist, then the doctor will provide appropriate treatment according to the cause of your complaint.
Hope this helps!
