Question: I have headache
Answered by Dr. Kampana 15 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Lots of fluids, healthy diet, adequate sleep.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I understand your concern. It would be help if I would know some more details like from when you are having headache, what time of day(morning/evening), do you have cold/cough or Is it associated with vomiting?

The most common causes of headaches are cluster headache, Migraine or Tension headache. Some primary headaches can be triggered by lifestyle factors like certain foods, changes in sleep or lack of sleep, poor posture, skipped meals or Stress.

For symptomatic relief I would advice you to have lots of fluids(juices, tender coconut water, buttermilk), deep breathing exercises, tab. paracetamol, healthy diet(fresh fruits and vegetables), adequate sleep(6 to 8 hrs). If associated with cold or cough, steam inhalation helps relieve sinus headaches.

If your symptom persist or worsens it should not be ignored and you should meet your physician for a thorough examination and treatment.

I hope this answered your query.

I have been on birth control for the past 5 months and in the last 2 weeks i have started to get headaches everyday, dizziness, and pressure behind my eye. I have never had these headaches or eye pressure in the past. Would this have anything to do with the birth control or could it be something more serious? Thank you

I am a 38 yo white heathly attractive male who masturbates at least twice a day or more. I am not promiscuous, not as in my younger I just watch internet porn or think about it. I Love sex and have since I can remember back to five years old playing with girls. I expected the intesity to lessen with age, but I have come to find out it is not and I am more and more beginning to embrace my nature as it seems this is how I am wired. Will the fire ever subside?

Ive been having bad headaches above my right eye. My eye looks a lil swollen and that side of my nose is stopped up. I also have quite a bit of drainage. Could this just be a sinus migraine? I went to the dr last week before the headaches started and he said I just had the crud, but no infection.

Hi! I have been having a little pain in my head and neck for a few days. My neck is also a little bit stiff. The headaches are very different from day to day, sometimes they are worse at the evening and sometimes they get worse in the morning, just when I wake up. I'm 14 years old and had a sinus infection just a few weeks ago but I got antibiotics and the headache got over for almost two weeks but then it came back, it's not the same headache though. When I shake my head I feel a pretty severe pain in the bottom of my skull and back of my head. I also have a little bad vision so I use glasses but the past few weeks I realize I'm getting a bit double vision especially when I look at white or bright things.
I'm very worried I hope I can get a helpful answer.
