High Headache Within 1 Min
For the first time, headache, which is very severe and reaches its highest intensity in about 1 minute, can be a harbinger of subarachnoid hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage occurs due to rupture of aneurysms, which may be described as ballooning due to anomaly in the brain vessel walls.
Headache may be expressed by some patients as “something explodes in my head”. Sudden and severe headache may be accompanied by changes in consciousness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, epilepsy (epileptic seizures) in the patient who has no complaints. This is a serious complaint. Therefore, the patient should be referred to the hospital immediately.
If headache is frequent and if it is increasing, it should be considered. Increased headache in a young woman who is a smoker and contraceptive may be a sign of a disease that should be started rapidly, such as “cerebral sinus thrombosis”, which occurs as a result of coagulation in the brain veins.
Headache that occurs immediately after sneezing, pushing or sexual activity
As a result of increased intracranial pressure such as exercise, sneezing or squeezing, headache may suggest a space-occupying formation. Brain tumors, aneurysms may cause this type of headache, or “pseudotumor cerebri” disease caused by an increase in the pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid, which is more common in young middle-aged obese women.
Headache after head tram
Especially after severe head traumas such as traffic accidents, fractures in the head bones, bleeding in the brain tissue or brain membranes may occur. In rare instances, leakage between the brain membranes may not present initially. Days of trauma, or even months after headache and balance disorders may occur with such findings.
Headache accompanied by weakness, visual and speech problems
Neurological signs, such as numbness, weakness, impaired vision, speech difficulty, and headache may be seen in the brain tissue. In addition to these diseases, for example, 10% of stroke patients may have headache before stroke.
Headaches that do not improve despite treatment
Resistant headaches, which do not improve despite treatment, can be a symptom of many diseases in the brain such as lesions in the head, tumor, increased intracranial pressure, central nervous system infections, structural changes in the brain, and irritation.
Headache is always in the same area
The reason headache is always in the same area may be the presence of a lesion in the area of that pain.
High fever and sleep accompanied by headache
Meningitis is the diseases surrounding the brain, encephalitis is the disease caused by the infection of brain tissue. In these diseases, headaches are increasing. Headache with high fever, fatigue, drowsiness should necessarily suggest that the brain is affected by the infection. Central nervous system infections can also be fatal or cause disability.
Newborn headaches in advanced ages.
Temporal arthritis is a dangerous disease that threatens the age of 50 years. This disease may be accompanied by symptoms such as moderate to severe headache, weakness, joint pain, decreased vision, chewing fatigue. Failure to treat early may cause permanent loss of vision and brain damage. Again, headaches in the elderly can bring to mind brain vessel diseases and brain tumors.
