Headache – the most common symptom on the planet. Unlikely to find at least one person who’s never had a headache. The doctor Alexander Myasnikov told how to deal with the usual headache, how much can you take painkillers for a month, and what a headache indicates a brain tumor, aneurysm or stroke.
Alexander Myasnikov claims that the brain itself can not white – there are no nerve endings, but ligaments, fascia, tendons, which is on the outside of the skull – can cause pain in the case of voltage. This kind of pain 80-90% of all cases. They are relatively safe and are reduced by regular exercise (stress relief), stress management.
The remaining 10-20% of headaches is a more dangerous form, which may be indicative of such pathological processes, such as meningitis, aneurysm, stroke, brain tumors.
Migraines and cluster pain can talk about the impending stroke, so with a strong, unbearable pain should always consult a doctor. If the person rarely suffers from headaches, but occasionally begins to feel a sharp pain that occurs suddenly, without any reason, then it is a bad indicator – it is necessary to diagnose brain tumours.
In addition, the danger signs that indicate that a headache is a symptom of a serious disease: neurological symptoms (numbness, speech problems, etc) and pain that increases with coughing.
The doctor also reminded that we should not get involved painkillers. The maximum dose in a month – 15 tablets.
