Upper Headache And Nasal Congestion But Not Colds?
Hello .. I have a sister already married and have 5 children, age is still 30’s and above this week he often has an upper headache from 9 am until late afternoon, his nose and nose are clogged but not runny nose. What are the symptoms of pain and overcome them? Thanks
Thank you for the question.
Upper head pain with nasal congestion most often indicates rhinosinusitis, which is inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses. This condition can be caused by allergic reactions, irritation, infection, to benign or malignant tumors around the nasal cavity. The introduction of a foreign body, impaired immunity, or excessive sensitivity to a certain drug can also cause this disease to worsen.
It could also be, complaints that your brother feels arises because of other reasons, for example, cluster headaches, nasal polyps, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, brain tumors, psychological disorders, nasal konka swelling, nasal septal deviation, side effects of drugs, and so on.
To be clear, you can take your brother to see him directly to the nearest doctor. If necessary, the doctor will give him medication, direct him to undergo a supporting examination (for example, x-rays, CT scans, or nasal cavity endoscopy), and even refer him to the right specialist doctor (for example, a neurologist or ENT doctor).
In the meantime, your brother can relieve his complaints first by taking paracetamol. In addition, he also needs to get more rest, don't over-look at gadgets, don't over-stress, avoid substances that often create allergies, wear masks when outdoors or in a crowded environment, and avoid smoking. Not to forget, your sister also needs to increase eating vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin C, drink more water, and limit caffeine intake especially alcohol.
Hope this helps ...
