Suffering with frequent headache. Could not sleep. What could be the cause? - Online Doctor Chats
Last night I had a pain in the back side of my head... it was very bad. I tried some options like balm etc but did not work. So finally I toll a SERIDON, it didnot work till late then I took another tablet of the same and finally could sleep. I am not sure what problem is it. But is this really a problem or I should really do worry about it.
Did you have any other symptoms along with it - such as nausea, vomiting?
I have written the question
Did you wake up with this headache?
No, in morning it was quite normal...
I am doing my regular stuff...
I mean did you get up from a sound sleep with the headache or you had this ache before you went to sleep?
i had since evening... so I could not sleep till 2AM in night
After second tablet, I could sleep.
Were you having fever?
my wife said little fever..
How are you feeling now?
Have you had similar headaches in the past?
Do you suffer with frequent headaches?
2-3 times in last 4-5 months
Let me brief you.
The cause of headache can be confirmed only by clinical examination and investigations. However based on the details provided,
you probably may have had an aggravation of previous known chronic headaches.
Stress and tension are one of the cause of chronic headache
Migraine is another cause of chronic headache.
Apart from this any infections can cause worsening of headaches.
Stress can be... it seems I was too much engaged yesterday
What ever the cause is, if you are alright now, then it does not need any treatment now.
What kind of examination needed forme?
However if these headaches are very recurring and troubling you, I would suggest you to consult a neurologist.
He/she can examine your nerves, look at your fundus and consider the options of blood test and CT scan.
he/she can also suggest prophylactic daily medicines to prevent such episodes in future.
Have you followed?
OK, I was diagnosed with minor spondlysis approx 3 yrs back... with that also can affect..?
Cervical spondylosis can influence the problem, but I think our main problem is chronic recurring headache.
yes.. so if I again have such problem, its better to visit to a neurologist..
Without proper lifestyle and measures to counter stress can produce similar attacks in future; unless you are on preventive medications.
A visit to neurologist is recommended if the episodes of headache are severe and recurring very frequently.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
Definitely I will. Can you suggest me any medicine other then SERIDON, which can be taken in such pain?
Wide variety of medications are available to treat acute worsening.
I generally afraid of medicine, please suggest me one which can be taken if the condition is worst.
Usually one of the medications works every time in most patients.
You can work with your nearby doctor/neurologist and choose the right medications without side effects for future use.
Have you followed?
OK, thanks a lot..
Do you have any doubts?
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
