Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Headaches are classified into two categories, namely primary headaches, in which these headaches occur without any other underlying medical cause, and secondary headaches that are accompanied by other medical conditions.
Among the examples of primary headaches are:
Migraine, which is characterized by tension headaches, which are characterized by headaches all over the head like a tight tight knot Cluster headache, which is characterized by pain behind the eyes, very severe, making the eyes red, watery, and a runny nose
Meanwhile, secondary headaches are caused by:
Glaucoma of the eye High blood pressure or hypertension High cholesterol Brain hemorrhage Brain tumor
In both primary and secondary headaches, some conditions will get worse with a blow or impact to the head. Our advice, check with a neurologist for further examination of your head. Since you have a history of concussions and head hits, your doctor in particular will do a CT scan of the head to make sure there is no blood clot or other mass on your head causing the throbbing pain.
If indeed from the physical examination and support, the results you get are normal, then your doctor will prescribe a drug that you can take whenever your head hurts.
Meanwhile, what you can do at home is avoid too heavy physical activity, avoid stress, cigarette smoke, and consume more water. Get enough sleep, consume more fruits and vegetables, please take over-the-counter paints by reading the rules of use listed for a while and immediately go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital if you feel you are seeing double glances, vomiting or fainting. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
