Probably, there is no person who would be completely unfamiliar with a headache. It occurs quite often and is caused by various reasons. But the danger of its occurrence is that it can be a symptom of many serious diseases.
Severe headache may also indicate:
• kidney disease;
• organic damage to the brain;
• post-traumatic syndrome;
• encephalitis, etc.
Therefore, if headaches recur quite often or do not subside within a few hours, you should consult a doctor. But even if the specialist does not find any signs of the disease, they are able to completely unsettle a person and deprive him of the ability to live a full life.
To identify the cause of a headache, it is very important to establish the circumstances of its occurrence: the average duration, the main points where it is felt most strongly, its accompanying phenomena (nausea, vomiting, flies in front of the eyes, dizziness, cramps, confusion, heaviness in the lower back, weakness, bleeding ), the frequency of occurrence of these sensations, the nature (pulsating, pressing, stitching, sharp, aching, cutting, etc.) that exactly preceded its occurrence.
Distinguish the pain that occurs on the one hand, in the temporal, frontal, occipital region, in the whole head as a whole.
Therefore, to establish the exact cause of its development, the therapist will examine the patient, measure his blood pressure, take an electroencephalogram, make an ultrasound scan of the head and pelvis, prescribe a clinical and biochemical blood test, general urinalysis, PCR diagnostics, MRI, CT, etc.
