The Cause Of Headaches, Especially On The Right Of The Back?
, I want to ask. Why have my head hurts on the right side lately, but the most intense is the back to the forehead to the eye circles. What do you think it hurts and how to deal with it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the head, especially on the right, starting from the back to the forehead and eyes, may be due to a migraine. Migraine itself is a type of primary headache which is characterized by throbbing pain, of moderate to severe intensity, which feels dominant on one side of the head. In some people, migraines appear accompanied by nausea, vomiting, easy glare, blurred vision, and certain sensations (aura). After the migraine subsides, you may experience weakness, fatigue, mood swings, and mental confusion (dazed).
It is not clear what triggers a person to experience migraines. However, many sources say this condition is related to changes in the brain (especially the brain stem) and its interaction with the trigeminal nerve which is mediated by certain chemical substances, namely serotonin and CGRP (calcitonin gene related peptide). This condition will also affect the activity of blood vessels in the brain resulting in a distinctive throbbing pain sensation. Migraine attacks can arise as a result of being triggered by the consumption of certain foods (for example salty foods or MSG), caffeinated drinks, alcohol, psychological stress, changes in sleep patterns, fatigue, side effects of drugs, to environmental factors (such as glare, noise, strong smell, extreme weather), and so on.
Not only migraines, you may also feel the pain you feel is due to other causes, for example:
Asthenopia, and so on
What you should do now is, get plenty of rest first, and avoid all migraine triggers as mentioned above. Also consume pain relievers that are widely sold in the market (for example, those containing paracetamol). Do lots of positive activities, including exercise, relaxation, and meditation. Get used to a lifestyle, including eating and sleeping patterns, which are more regular and also healthier.
However, if the pain does not improve within 1 to 3 days, or you develop fever, vomiting, neck stiffness, blurred vision, and other serious complaints, do not hesitate to go to a doctor or neurologist for further treatment. yes..
I hope this helps.
