The Cause Of Headaches And Strange Behavior And Words?
Hi doc, I want to ask you about my little sister who actually just got out of the hospital 2 weeks ago by a typhoid fever. When he was discharged from the hospital he was fine, but only a little weak. But after a few days he often said that the headaches that we thought were just normal. But for the sake of the day he was getting more and more strange, always talking about things that didn’t happen, forgetful that we had to watch him and eat him too. When you check the doctor’s CT scan he is Ok, the blood is also okay there are no germs. Only his blood is very high 160. Harini just took her CSF doc to identify what happened. But the result will be to know all that, guess it’s a long time too (what is the doctor’s point of view). So I want it, maybe this is just an impression of ubot or whether the doctor suspect my sister is experiencing. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about the conditions experienced by your sister. Symptoms of headaches and strange behavior and words, especially before there is no history of mental disorders and headaches, then it occurs in people who have no disturbances in daily living and moreover if your younger brother is young, it is most likely due to a disruption in the brain . The disorder can be in the form of:
Encephalitis or inflammation of the brain
Meningitis or inflammation of the lining of the brain
Effects of alcohol
Drug side effects
Specific chemical poisoning
Acute kidney failure
Because we did not have your sister examined directly, we cannot confirm the diagnosis. What your brother's doctor did by taking CSF was to assess whether there was an infection in the CSF that would be a clue to whether an infection was occurring in the brain. It was only after the examination came out, can be determined what treatment is best for your sister, the target of treatment, and hopes for recovery.
As a family member, what you can do now is keep an eye on your little brother, and if possible, don't let him be left alone. Try to have other family members accompany and monitor him, so that information about him can also be conveyed in full to the doctor who treats him. In addition, with a family member who always accompanies him, just in case there is an emergency such as your brother suddenly convulsing, unconscious or something, there can be family members who take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. From the side of your own sister, ask her to get more rest, report all symptoms that she feels and limit the activity and consumption of drugs regularly if there are. So, hopefully answering your question.
