Hello, Nujul Q, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headaches can be caused by several possibilities, for example:
1. Primary headaches: tension-type headache, migraine, cluster headache
2. Secondary headaches, or headaches caused by underlying diseases, for example due to stroke, inflammation or infection of the brain / lining of the brain, sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), ear inflammation, eye disorders, tooth disorders, head injuries, etc.
To determine the cause, you can do a direct examination by a doctor as well as supporting examinations if needed, for example: a complete blood test, CT-scan, MRI, etc. Treatment depends on the results of the examination and the cause of headache itself.
Some headaches can be triggered by conditions such as stress, hormonal disorders, taking certain substances / medicines, physical fatigue, seeing too bright light, etc. To reduce complaints, you can take paracetamol or ibuprofen, and avoid factors that might trigger it. Control stress, get enough rest, meet your fluid and nutritional needs, and avoid smoking and alcohol.
If with paracetamol / ibuprofen and lifestyle improvement as above it does not improve, or there are other symptoms such as: fever, impaired hand / foot movements, numbness / tingling, half body weakness, history of fainting, history of head injury, seizures, vision problems , vomiting, headaches that are unbearable, balance disorders, you should immediately see a doctor.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
