Dengue symptom are very much similar to malaria. But if the fever persist after 7 days of treatment go for CBC. Retest of CBC again after 5 days. If platelets are decreasing. Then go for dengue test.

Dear Lybrate User, *Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed *Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee *Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. *Daily Massage body with coconut oil and bath with warm water,

Migraine Vs. Headache - Major Differences You Need To Know!

Migraine Vs. Headache - Major Differences You Need To Know!

How to differentiate between a migraine and headache?

When you feel pain or pressure in your head, it may become difficult for you to assess whether you are experiencing a common headache or a migraine. Let's understand how different they are from each other. A typical headache usually affects both sides of your head and varies from a mild to moderate pain. It can last from 30 minutes to up to a period of one week.

Some specific areas which get affected by a headache are:

  • Temples
  • Forehead
  • Back of your neck

Factors that trigger this headache type are a muscle strain, stress or anxiety.

A migraine, on the other hand, is also a type of a headache which results in an acute throbbing sensation in one part of your head. Usually, migraine headaches are highly painful. Migraine pain makes it difficult for a person to carry out his/her daily tasks. Symptoms or signs associated with migraine attacks are:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Sensitivity to sound or light
  • Pain in the temples
  • Temporary loss of vision
  • Pain behind your ear or eye

What are the common causes of a migraine?

  1. Hormonal imbalances in women - fluctuations in oestrogen, especially during menopause or pregnancy seem to trigger a migraine
  2. Drinks like wine and extremely caffeinated beverages
  3. Foods such as salty foods, aged cheese as well as processed foods can trigger the migraine attack.
  4. Medications - vasodilators such as nitroglycerine and oral contraceptives can intensify migraine pain.

How to treat a headache?

Fortunately, you can get rid of stress-induced headaches through over-the-counter treatments, which include:

  • Aspirin
  • Acetaminophen
  • Ibuprofen

How to treat a migraine?

If you experience migraine attacks less frequently, these medicines may give you quick relief:

  • Triptans, such as rizatriptan (Maxalt) or almotriptan (Axert)
  • Antinausea medicines, such as chlorpromazine (Thorazine), promethazine (Phenergan) or prochlorperazine (Compazine)
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as acetaminophen, naproxen sodium, aspirin or ibuprofen

Some preventive tips:

  • Make changes in your diet such as avoid such foods, including caffeine and alcohol which are believed to trigger headaches.
  • You can also try muscle relaxation exercises, yoga or meditation to ease the migraine attack.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
