The Cause Of Headaches For 3 Days Includes Abdominal Pain And Toothache
Hello doc, my father has been sick for almost a week but his illnesses come and go with different symptoms every day. Symptoms of abdominal pain, then toothache, now a headache for almost 3 days alternating left and right. My father did not want to be taken to a doctor. Do you think there is a solution or not? And guess why?
Thank you for the question.
Abdominal pain, tooth aches, and recurring headaches for days can be many possible triggers, can be related to one another, or not. Here we explain some of the possibilities:
Causes of abdominal pain: dyspepsia, gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections or stones, inflammation of the intestine, hernias, muscle cramps, stress
Causes of tooth pain: cavities, pulpitis, dental abscesses, gingivitis, sinusitis, jaw joint disorders, stress
Causes of headaches: migraines, tension headaches, head injuries, brain tumors, viral or bacterial infections, stress, etc.
These pains, before going to the doctor, can be treated by your father first by:
Take paracetamol medicine
Warm compresses on painful sides of the body
Expand to rest and drink water
Don't drink caffeinated drinks first
Expand relaxation, not to stress or worry too much
Diligently brushing your teeth and gargling with warm salt solution
Also regularly sleep and exercise every day
However, if the pain feels very great, does not improve at all with the steps above, especially for example accompanied by high fever, vomiting, disruption of bowel movements, swollen gums and jaw, stiff neck, etc., you better persuade well your father to check himself directly to the doctor to be handled properly according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
