Woman’s Doctor: Causes of persistent headaches


THAT, WE HAVE IT FOR YOU ON OUR
WBAL-TV APP. IN TONIGHT’S WOMAN’S DOCTOR,
MOST OF THE TIME A HEADACHE GOES
AWAY AFTER A FEW HOURS BUT
SOMETIMES THEY SEEM TO LAST
FOREVE
THOSE PERSISTENT HEADACHES CAN BE CAUSED BY TAKING TOO MANY
OVER THE COUNTER PAIN KILLERS. DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY CAN ALSO
BE THE CULPRIT
AND ONE OF THE MOST COMMON
CAUSES IS SLEEP APNEA, OR OTHER
SLEEP ISSUES.>>SLEEP IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
THING. MOST OF THE TIME, PATIENTS WILL
COME IN AND THEY WILL SAY, WE
HAVE A HEADACHE. LO AND BEHOLD, IT ALL BOILS DOWN
TO THEY ARE NOT GETTING ENOUGH
SLEEP, OR ENOUGH REST. THE BODY NEEDS REST. ASHLEY: EASIER SAID THAN DONE,
THAT IS THE TRUTH. MERCY MEDICAL CENTER DR. AYESHA

WARNING SIGNS OF A MORE SERIOUS
PROBLEM. IF A HEADACHE FEELS DIFFERENT OR
MORE SEVERE THAN USUAL, IS
ACCOMPANIED BY FEVER, OR NECK
STIFFNESS, DIZZINESS OR SLURRED

ATTENTION
