When should you worry about headaches?When should you start worrying about headaches?
I have been getting headaches everyday for the past week,Some days its just on the right side and then other its on both.and top,I dont get headaches much but lately i have been and they last a while. I have no other symptoms just a headache that dont seem to be going away.I took some Advil and that didnt help.
Im a little worried because people have said that i could have symptoms of a brain tumor or be having a brain aneurysm.I get in panic mode when it comes to my health,and i dont have a Dr right now so if anything i would have to go to the Er,Should i be worrying about my headaches?
Also im thinking i need glasses,when i drive i cant see well at signs in the distance .Should i get my eyes checked first or see a dr?
Do this pranayam now for 21 minutes, and if the headache goes away, you have nothing to worry. Keep doing the pranayam for 30 minutes, twice a day, and if your eyes do not feel better after 6 weeks, then get them checked.Continue the pranayam daily, for life, to stay healthy.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 15 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
As mentioned from your other post,although your symptoms are not typical of tumor and aneurysm, you may benefit from further evaluation to rule them out. Rest,avoidance of triggers and both preventive and abortive medications may help provide relief. A headache journal will also help identify the possible triggers. Take care and best regards.
