The Cause Of The Headache Doesn’t Go Away?
hello doctor, my sister is 22 years old. I had a headache from the age of 17, the headache I experienced was like a migrant, only the left side only the pain radiated to the neck. I checked up to the ct scan but the doctor said there were no symptoms. it’s just a normal dizziness but the longer the headache is getting more and more annoying and every day I feel dizzy up to the neck and sometimes my vision is blurred and my hair is also badly lost, is this related to the headaches I have. I also always take medicine for pain and put on a balm or warmth to feel better. guess what kind of headache i have? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headache is one of the most common complaints that makes someone visit health facilities. There are many possible causes for headaches. Headaches that last a long time are known as chronic headaches. Some of the conditions that can be thought to be the causes of chronic headaches include the following:
Muscle tension or tension headaches (tension headaches)
Nerve disorders in the cervical spine.
The presence of blood vessel disorders.
Rhinitis or inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose due to an allergic condition. However, this condition is accompanied by recurring colds
Posture abnormalities, for example, can be triggered due to the deformity and tilt of the spine.
Disorders of the ear organs
The presence of disturbances in the oral cavity, for example the growth of imperfect wisdom teeth known as impactions, can trigger severe headaches that last a long time.
Certain psychological stress or pressure.
In your case where a CT scan has been done and it is declared good, it is necessary to think about other medical conditions that underlie your current complaint. Whether or not other examinations such as EEG (examination of electrical activity in the brain), spinal examinations, dental examinations or regular X-rays of the head and face are also considered. Thus it can be suggested that you return to the doctor who treated you before and discuss the need for other examinations to find out the most likely cause of your current complaint.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
