There are certain types of dangerous headaches that should prompt you to seek immediate medical attention. Sakib Qureshi MD(a neurologist)speaks on these types of headaches. About 12 million people in the world are misdiagnosed every year and that’s not a good number. The basic thing to be misdiagnosed in the medical scene is a headache.
One can never tell whether a headache is as simple as a tension headache due to exhaustion during the day or a dangerous life threatening disease.So the question becomes, how do you know the difference between a simple stress headache and one that may be indicative of a more serious problem, e.g. BLEEDING IN THE BRAIN, AN ANEURYISM, A BRAIN TUMOR or a STROKE.
In the video that you are about to watch, a doctor discusses “Your Body’s Red Light Warning Signals” with headaches of varying types, intensities, and those that present with other neurological deficits.
For instance, any headache that has another marked symptom, such as: weakness, numbness and/or vision changes, could result from a migraine or something more serious.
