IN THE EVENT that the headaches are strong or recurrent, it is necessary to visit a doctor immediately in order to exclude the possibility of serious pathological diseases, said doctor-neurologist Nadežda Bojarinova in an interview with the “Izvestia” newspaper.
In her opinion, timely consultation with a doctor can eliminate a diagnosis such as a brain tumor or prevent a stroke.
“As a rule, a person cannot determine the causes of headaches, many do not even try to take painkillers, which is basically wrong, because in that way valuable time can be missed for timely and correct diagnosis of the disease,” said the doctor.
Delaying the diagnosis can lead to major brain injuries and severe consequences: from decreased concentration and memory to clinical depression.
Bojarinova listed the cases in which a visit to a neurologist should not be delayed: if your head hurts several times a month, the pain intensifies, accompanied by nausea, vomiting, poor eyesight, speech difficulties and coordination of movements. In addition, it is necessary to seek medical help in case the pain prevents peaceful sleep, which can also indicate the possible appearance of tumors.
