Did you know that some headaches cause severe rupture of red blood vessels in the brain and lead to death in people? We want to introduce you to different types of dangerous headaches.
Headache is a very common complaint. With the increase of job and social tensions and the industrialization of society as well as the economic situation of individuals, the rate of headaches also increases. A large proportion of headaches are neurological, with only one to two percent of community headaches being caused by an organ (brain tumor or space lesion), and about 98% of headaches are benign and curable. Many non-specific symptoms can cause headaches, from a simple cold or a minor infection to air pollution and changes in eating habits and hormonal changes.
But today, in the form of a few points, I want to introduce you to the headaches that are important and traceable for us so that you can take them seriously, I will count them one by one:
1) Change in the quality of the headache. If your headache has always been calm and responding to painkillers, but now it has become resistant or the quality of the headache has changed.
2) The frequency and frequency of headaches are important. For example, you used to get it once a week, but now you have a headache three times a day.
3) A headache that wakes you up. Headaches of this type of headache that wake up a person are vascular headaches such as migraines, but in any case, if you have such a headache, it is necessary to check.
4) Morning headaches. Although causes such as insomnia and insufficient rest, high blood pressure, etc. can cause such headaches, but if your headache starts immediately in the morning and decreases during the day, it is important because naturally we experience a relative increase in intracranial pressure during sleep. And if, for example, there are space-absorbing lesions, this relative increase in pressure will not be tolerated and headaches will occur.
5) Headache with nausea and vomiting. Many headaches are like migraines, but if nausea occurs early in the morning, reduce your headache by vomiting and find your appetite for breakfast. Should be checked.
6) Pediatric headaches should be taken seriously, especially if they are recurrent. Children may not recognize or complain of a headache, but they do reflect it by a change in appetite, decreased activity and play, or a change in desire for lessons.
7) Headache in the elderly, about 65 years old. If the headache is sudden, chronic, and resistant to medical treatment, it should be checked.
8) Headache with photophobia (fear of light), a case similar to migraine or meningitis, or if the headache is accompanied by eye symptoms such as diplopia, decreased vision, changes in vision and blurred vision, or the need to quickly change glasses at short intervals of one month If it is accompanied by a headache, it is better to check for brain causes.
