What Are The Symptoms Of The Disease?
Please ask permission doc, around from January 2020 .. I feel a very painful headache even until April this has not disappeared. This headache is accompanied by nausea, fainting, decreased appetite. Already taking any medication does not have a good effect, maybe there is but only briefly. In late January I was hospitalized for 3 days with urinary tract infections and ARI. Not long in February, I fainted and finally was hospitalized again 5 days with a diagnosis of typhus and UTI again. But I’m still confused, actually why my head? Should there be further actions such as CT-SCAN? Because this is really a headache always appears doc .. Thank you 🙂
Hello Ana, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.
Reading your complaint, the complaint may indeed be related to conditions that you have suffered before, but can also be caused by other conditions that are not related at all such as:
Tension type headaches
Lack of blood sugar
High blood pressure
Low blood pressure
Headaches caused by abnormalities in the brain / other parts of the head such as brain tumors, inflammation of the brain, inflammation of the lining of the brain, sinusitis and others
Because your complaint has been felt for a long time and has not improved, it is advisable to check the complaint with a neurologist for further evaluation and also what treatment should be given. During the evaluation process, a head CT-scan may be recommended, but it must be based on your doctor's judgment based on your condition and not recommended to be done by your own decision.
Meanwhile, in addition to seeing a doctor, there are some things that are recommended to be done at home such as:
Maintain your food intake so that it is always sufficient and balanced nutrition every day
Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day
Get adequate rest and quality of at least 6-8 hours per day
Doing exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes per day
Limit consumption of foods high in salt, fat and caffeine for a while
Avoiding injury to the head
Avoid things that should trigger or aggravate your complaint
You are allowed to take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen according to the dosage of the package until further instructions from your doctor
If the complaint is accompanied by severe vomiting, decreased awareness, sudden decrease in vision, sudden weakness of limbs, convulsions or high fever (body temperature reaches 38 degrees or more), immediately go to the hospital emergency room to get further help.
I hope this helps.
