Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It is true, feeling heavy and dizzy in the head and neck of the back can be a sign of hypertension (low blood pressure). Consumption of foods that contain saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, and high salt can cause blood pressure to increase suddenly. Blood pressure can be declared high if it reaches 130/80 mmHg or more. Usually, in the early stages, people with hypertension often do not feel the typical symptoms. However, if you do not get proper treatment, hypertension can lead to dangerous complications, for example stroke, heart attack, heart failure, aneurysm, kidney disorders, vision problems, metabolic syndrome, to death.
You also need to know, that in addition to hypertension, there are many more conditions that can trigger a feeling of heaviness and dizziness in the head to neck as you experience, including:
Hypercholesterolemia Viral or bacterial infections Migraines Tense headaches Fibromyalgia Brain tumors Pinched neck nerves, etc. Making a diagnosis of hypertension needs to be done by monitoring blood pressure directly by a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. If you have never seen a doctor, you should not make a conclusion too soon. Try the following steps to make the complaint improve:
Take paracetamol medication so that complaints subside Neck compresses that feel heavy with warm water Reduce consumption of foods that contain lots of saturated fat, trans fats, cholesterol, salt, and caffeinated drinks Do not smoke or consume alcohol 5 times a week Do not stress excessively Sleep regularly 6 to 8 hours a day Do not carelessly take drugs without a doctor's prescription If with the efforts above your complaint still does not improve in 1 to 3 days, or other complaints appear, such as extreme headaches and no bearable, blurred vision, stiffness, fever, vomiting, convulsions, and so on, you should consult yourself directly to the doctor so that appropriate treatment is given ..
I hope this helps.
