Hello, Alfitriana Muh Tabri, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headaches can be caused by many possible causes, both internal and external. The cause can be from primary headaches (TTH / tension headaches, migraine, or cluster headaches), or from secondary headaches (originating from obvious causes, for example: history of head injuries, bleeding, tumors, infections, sinusitis, toothaches, pain. eyes, etc.).
To determine the cause, a physical examination must be carried out, an interview regarding everything related to your condition, as well as carrying out supporting examinations if necessary, for example a complete blood test, head x-ray, CT-scan, or other suspected organ examinations (for example, ENT, eye, tooth). The doctor will provide therapy according to the cause.
For now, you can relieve headaches with paracetamol or ibuprofen, get enough rest and sleep, avoid stress, get enough nutrition and fluids, avoid smoking and alcohol, and exercise regularly. However, if you have some danger signs in a headache such as: unbearable headache, weakness in half of the body, fever, tingling sensation, slurred speech, balance disturbances, seizures, fainting, vomiting, vision problems, hearing loss, weight loss accidental body, you should immediately see a doctor for examination.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
