The Cause Of Headaches Right To The Neck And Feels Throbbing?
Hello morning doctor,
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Headaches that feel throbbing can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Migraine headache Occipital neuralgia, which is a headache that occurs due to nerve pressure coming out of the neck area Temporal arteritis, which is inflammation of the temporal arteries (blood vessels on the sides of the head) Hemicrania continua, which is chronic and persistent headaches characterized by pain continuous intensity of different intensities, occurring on one side of the same head, accompanied by other symptoms' Brain aneurysm Disorders of blood vessels in the brain (venous arterial malformations) The effect of stopping caffeine (caffeine withdrawal) Post alcohol consumption Reactions allergies etc. If there are currently swelling and signs of infection in your ear, then maybe the cause is this. Inflammation in the ear area can also disrupt innervation that runs to the side of the head to cause pain in the head.
You should check with your doctor so that further tests can be carried out for infections and inflammation in your ear. If after treatment and inflammation has improved but the headache persists, you should check yourself further with a neurologist.
For now, some of what you can do:
Warm compresses on the swollen area of your ear, don't touch it much and don't squeeze it. Take painkillers such as paracetamol to help ease pain in your ears and head. Enough sleep and rest. Don't consume excessive coffee. Drink enough water every day (minimum 2- 3 liters a day)
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
