The Top Of The Head Feels Tight, The Heartbeat Is Fast And Dizzy?
Good evening, I am Luqman 21 years old, my complaint is, my head is tight at the top of the head, sometimes my heart attacks for 1 second, my heart feels fast but not pounding, and dizzy. I’ve been to a neurologist and he said it was because my tooth was impacted, even though I didn’t feel any pain in my tooth, actually I was sick, thank you.
The heart is a vital organ in the body. from the situation you are experiencing, the head feels tight at the top accompanied by a fast heart beat may be caused by a high blood pressure.
High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition where blood pressure exceeds 140/90 mmHg. High blood pressure can consist of primary hypertension (in the absence of a disease) or secondary hypertension (there is another underlying disease). at the age of 21 years, then if there is hypertension it is usually caused by secondary hypertension where there are other diseases that cause hypertension such as kidney disease, or due to excessive stress. Hypertension can cause symptoms such as pain in the head, chest palpitations.
Impacted teeth may also cause headaches, because the nerves in the teeth can travel to the head region, causing headaches. In addition, tooth impaction can also not be accompanied by tooth pain, but pain in other parts such as headaches.
But apart from that, the situation you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
heart valve disease (aortic regurgitation)
anemia/lack of red blood cells
heart rhythm abnormalities/arrhythmias
Therefore, if the condition you are experiencing continues to occur, you can re-examine yourself to a specialist in internal medicine, so that the doctor can examine your condition directly and thoroughly. Maybe later additional examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, or CT scans will be carried out if necessary.
Avoid alcohol consumption and don't smoke. enough rest. avoid excessive stress. Do gargle using an antiseptic liquid after brushing your teeth.
