Headache might seem a harmless symptom that can at most negatively affect our relations with other people or productivity at work. Although many of us ignore it, headache is often a signal that something wrong is happening in our body. If you experience discomfort from frequently recurring headache, have trouble concentrating and even experience memory loss, you should seriously consider the possibility that your symptoms are caused by some underlying pathology.
Headache can, of course, be caused by stress at work, stress at home or simple exhaustion. You shouldn't panic each time you get a headache! If, however, the headaches recur and get increasingly severe, it is very likely that they are caused by an underlying health problem you should take absolutely seriously! Chronic headache may be secondary to neurological disorders, ENT (ear, nose and throat) disorders or eye disorders, such as:
- tension headache,
- hypertension (high blood pressure),
which can be quickly detected with the Headache Screening here at the Medicover Hospital and successfully treated while you are still generally healthy. The Headache Screening is a good diagnostic option for you if you want to improve your quality of life and feel better permanently, and not just until your current painkiller tablet has worn off and you need to take another.
