Neurologist “CM-Clinic” Nadezhda Boyarinova in a conversation with “Izvestia” explained Russians the causes of frequent headaches. According to her, this can indicate a variety of malfunctions in the body.
So, the pain can be primary – it is a migraine, tension headache, cluster pain, or secondary, it is caused by some other factor. Among them, the specialist named alcohol poisoning, taking pills in the wrong dosage, pathologies of the cervical spine, or diseases such as meningitis, encephalitis, vertebral artery syndrome, acute cerebrovascular accidents.
“As a rule, it is impossible for a person himself to determine the causes of his headaches, many do not even try to do this, but simply drown out the pain with various painkillers, which is fundamentally wrong, because precious time can be lost for the timely correct diagnosis of diseases,” pointed out Boyarinova.
She added that it is necessary to exclude the threat of a serious pathology, for example, a brain tumor or vascular insufficiency, which leads to a stroke. Doctors remind that the manifestations of diseases will be the more severe, the longer the diagnosis is made and the treatment is prescribed. Among the disorders due to frequent headaches, there can be a decrease in alertness, memory and mood, up to depression.
Boyarinova advised to be wary if unpleasant symptoms recur several times a month, accompanied by nausea, loss of vision, impairment of speech or motor skills. Of particular note, she said, are nighttime headaches that awaken a person, this may indicate an increase in intracranial pressure, for example, due to a brain tumor.
