“Headache” – perhaps the most common complaint, which refers the patient to a doctor. And – not easy for a specialist because it can indicate many diseases or indicate their initial stage. The district internist or family doctor is not always “at hand” with modern diagnostic equipment, so the patient has to be examined by an ophthalmologist, otolaryngologist, neurologist, dentist, orthopedist…
But it so happens, that even the council of physicians, determining the diagnosis, may not come “a consensus”, so the patient will be discharged long recipe and … left alone with a headache. Then the patient begins to independently appoint a pill to swallow them in the most difficult moments, to temporarily alleviate the suffering, but do not eliminate the cause of the problem.
So it was with Nadia Tymoshchuk. For over 20 years, now she is 52, she suffered from headaches, “collected” diagnoses: from allergy to osteoarthritis. Finally, it came to neurasthenia – periodic unbearable headaches are not allowed to concentrate at work, insomnia, depression appeared. Only examination of the vessels of the brain found that the cause of migraine is narrowing of arteries and veins, and if properly and promptly prescribe treatment, the problem can be successfully removed.
The causes of headaches – about fifty, and it can be provoked by anything: the strong smell, hunger, fatigue, heat, even “trivial” tooth – says Igor Babii, Chief Doctor and neurologist of the Clinic of Healthy Vessels, – Or, , emotional stress, depression, weather changes, bright light, smoking, drinking. Probable cause of headaches may be allergic, hypertension, aneurysm, brain tumor, head injury, sinusitis, eye strain, high temperature, the use of hormones or other drugs, genetic predisposition. Of course, only analgesic pills like – aspirin or citramon do not get along.
Vessels “recover and the body “come to life”
According to recent research, certain foods and drinks that contain amines, sudium glutamate, nitrites, caffeine or aspartame, also can trigger excruciating headache. Among products- “provocateurs” – pickles, mustard, ketchup, smoked meat and fish, citrus fruits, bananas, avocados, beans, nuts, onions, chocolate, cream, sour cream, yogurt, alcoholic beverages, Chinese dishes, chips.
Doctors say even incorrectly chosen glasses cause headaches. Occasionally this discomfort can be caused by jaw joint diseases or… tight hat. It happens that the head pain is caused by anemia (ferrum deficiency in the body). Finally, in a room where there is lack of fresh air, the head also will not be “fresh”.
The effectiveness of treatment depends primarily on a deep clinical examination, – says Igor Babii. – In particular, it is important to investigate changes in brain structures. The rheography results (determination of the electrical resistance of the brain) assess the condition of blood circulation in separate hemispheres. Doppler ultrasound determines the speed of blood flow in the major vessels. The activity of brain cells is studied by electroencephalography (EEG). Human has a lot of systems, but the cardiovascular is the most important. Vessels connect all the organs. If, for example, the capillaries are failing, then kidney, stomach, heart badly begin to work. When the person treats his vessels so other organs are recovering.
If you feel that alone you are not able to overcome the “head problem”, do not delay visiting the doctor. Especially dangerous delay at such alarming symptoms:

Migraine attacks clearly described by a doctor and writer Mikhail Bulgakov in his novel “Master and Margarita”, telling about headache of procurator Pontius Pilate.
