The Cause Of Nausea Is Accompanied By Headaches?
Good afternoon. I want to ask, yes, I was dizzy and nauseous from last night but did not vomit, and I have had diarrhea twice. A few days ago I was experiencing dizzy all of a sudden which started my stomach like bloating. After I sat down and lowered my head, my dizziness stopped. After that I check the oxygen in my body as much as 85%, is that my hypoxia? . Until now I am still weak.
Hello Dea Vitasari,
Complaints of nausea and headaches are very common complaints in patients. Almost all diseases and conditions can cause these two complaints. Complaints of nausea and headaches experienced by patients can vary from mild to severe until the patient is unable to move.
Complaints of nausea and headaches can occur in the following diseases:
Flu, common cold
Dengue hemorrhagic fever
Excessive caffeine consumption
Psychological stress, anxiety disorders
There are many more diseases that can cause nausea and headaches. Therefore it is needed a direct examination with a doctor for tracking other complaints and clinical signs on physical examination related to certain diseases. Investigations such as blood laboratories, ultrasound, CT-scan, endoscopy, may be needed if the doctor suspects certain diseases.
Nausea and headaches that need to be considered as a serious illness can be accompanied by the following complaints:
Severe headaches that can not move
Speech disorder that arises suddenly
One side weakness of the body
If you find these symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor. Handling complaints of nausea and headaches, especially to overcome the disease that causes it. Patients can also be given anti-emetic drugs to reduce nausea and pain relievers when severe headaches.
Hypoxia is a lack of tissue oxygenation. An examination using pulse oximetry can help detect this state of hypoxia. Try to use high-quality, well-calibrated pulse oximetry to get accurate results. Reduced oxygen saturation can occur in conditions of anemia, pneumonia, heart failure patients, patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma attacks. Pulse oximetry readings can be inaccurate if blood perfusion to the peripheral (fingers) is not good or body temperature is lower than normal. Keep the tool in your fingers for a few moments and breathe normally, if the saturation reading is low, but does not fit the clinical condition (no shortness of breath, normal breathing, the patient's condition looks good) try transferring to the fingers of the other hand.
Symptoms of hypoxia include:
The fingers or mucosa of the lips appear bluish
Drowsiness or loss of consciousness
Shortness of breath and fast breathing
Heart rate increases
Oxygen saturation <90% is generally found in patients with severe shortness, congenital heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or in the general condition of poor patients. It is best to make sure again with a pulse oximetry device at a health facility if the measurements are correct. Pulse oximetry measurements are still carried out for evaluation as long as the patient is treated according to the cause of the hypoxia. For example by giving oxygen supplementation with nasal cannula or face mask, giving bronchodilator drugs in asthma attacks, and so on. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
