What problems will we have in each hour of the day and what complications are related to different hours of the day? Headache, sneezing, cough, joint pain are problems related to different times during a day.
Cough, sneezing, pain, etc. can have different causes, and the time of day when this happens can be effective in diagnosing the cause and helping to treat it.
In this article, we will deal with various problems and diseases and their relationship with the hours of the day.
If you wake up in the morning with a headache, it could be due to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea, one of the symptoms of which is snoring, increases the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the blood. Too much CO2 causes the acid to thicken, which can lead to headaches. Sinusitis can also be another cause of this headache. Due to the density of sputum and due to being in a horizontal position during sleep, this sputum does not empty and causes headaches. By moving and emptying it, the pain also decreases. Migraines that start more in the morning can last for days. Many people wake up with migraine pain, with a decrease in oxygen levels during sleep, the migraine attack intensifies. But chronic headaches during the day can be due to excessive consumption of coffee or caffeinated beverages, and with increasing consumption at noon, the person suffers from headaches. Caffeine has diuretic properties and causes dehydration and headaches.
Eating sugary foods in the evening can increase and then decrease the amount of sugar, which can lead to headaches.
By the end of the day, stress and strain on the eyes can lead to tension headaches. The muscles around the eyes spasm due to the pressure of work when using a computer, which stimulates the nerves to transmit pain symptoms to the brain.
Sneezing during the day may be due to the common cold virus. The main cause of sneezing in the morning is allergies. People with allergies only start sneezing when they are awake, although they are also exposed to spores, fleas and allergies at night. On the other hand, the ventilator can dry the nasal passages, which leads to sneezing early in the morning. Sometimes sinusitis, inflammation of the walls of the sinuses can lead to first sneezing in the morning. By moving the person, sputum is drained from the sinuses. Sneezing during the day is also more due to the entry of viruses into the respiratory tract.
Sneezing that gets worse at the end of the day may be due to hay fever. During the day, the pollen rises in the air and as the temperature drops, the pollen falls to the ground and the person is exposed to the pollen. As a solution, it is better not to open the window in the morning and take a shower before going to bed to wash all the pollen. For some people, rinsing their nose with salt water is helpful. If you are taking antihistamines at night, it is best to take them 3 hours before bedtime.
The first cough in the morning can be due to a lung condition such as bronchitis or emphysema. By coughing, the sputum that has accumulated in the lungs overnight is emptied.
Asthmatics cough in the morning due to inflammation in the airways. In the early morning, cortisol levels are at their lowest, and as cortisol rises throughout the day, the chemical reduces pneumonia, resulting in a reduced cough.
Coughing during the day is due to a viral infection including colds and flu. If you cough after eating, it may be due to gastroesophageal reflux disease. Sometimes taking blood pressure medications can cause a dry, uncomfortable cough. These medications are often taken in the morning, one hour before breakfast. This is why the symptoms get worse during the day. Coughing at night is more common in people with asthma and prevents them from sleeping.
Joint pain is worse in people with rheumatoid arthritis in the morning. This is because of the body’s biological clock, which controls the inflammatory process. At night, the body produces a chemical called cytokines that, when secreted excessively, causes inflammation.
During the day, cytokines naturally decline, reducing inflammation and relieving pain. But people with osteoarthritis (inflammation of the joints and bones) feel more pain as the day goes on and more pressure is put on the joints.
