Ways to avoid complications of diabetes

Corona has caused the closure of all educational institutions in Bangladesh since March. Primary education finals and JSC-JDC exams have been canceled. The authorities have not yet decided when the HSC exam will take place. The university is also going to be in session. Online classes are going on.

But due to a lack of good internet connectivity, many students, especially rural students, are not able to participate properly. All in all, they are worried about their educational lives. This situation is increasing their stress. The result is a headache!

During the third episode of SKF’s ‘Headache with Headache’ program, which was organized on the occasion of ‘Migraine and Headache Awareness Week’, the discussion focused on students’ headaches. The theme of this episode was ‘Student’s Headache’.

Mohammad Salim Shahi, Associate Professor of Neurology Department of the National Institute of Neurosciences and Hospital, and Tawhida Jahan Shanta, Chairperson of the Communication Disability Department of Dhaka University, were the guests. In the event, they answered the audience’s questions about stress and headaches.

Ayman Sadiq, the founder of Robi Ten Minute School, hosted this special episode. The program was broadcast live on September 8 on Prothom Alo’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and SKF’s Facebook page.

The discussion at the beginning of the program highlights the limitations caused by the Internet infrastructure in Bangladesh, which affects the mental condition of students in the current situation of ongoing online classes. Students in remote areas are unable to attend classes uninterruptedly due to a lack of good connectivity.

Online classes are also said to have a deficiency in properly understanding reading. School-college students and parents are worried about exams. Many are not able to understand what they should give more importance to: institutional studies or extracurricular activities. Overall, these factors contribute to the creation of stress. Currently, these are the catalysts for the increase in headaches among students.

Experts said that students are most affected by tension and migraine pain. There is no specific cause for these two types of headaches. Migraine pain is long-lasting but not harmful. This pain usually occurs between 15 and 35 years of age.

Migraine symptoms include migraine pain, throbbing pain in the head, nausea or vomiting with pain, and intolerance to light or sound. This pain increases when working or studying, using a TV, computer, or smartphone more, or going in the sun. Migraine pain can also be genetic.

Before the onset of pain, some may experience flashes of light or hallucinations, tingling in the hands and feet, difficulty speaking, and irritability.

Migraine problems are rare in children. There are two types of migraine treatments. Immediate and preventive treatment. In immediate treatment, drugs are given to reduce the patient’s pain, and in preventive treatment, besides drugs, doctors prescribe lifestyle changes to prevent pain from increasing. Migraine treatments vary by age.

For example, the treatment of children emphasizes lifestyle changes rather than drugs. Therefore, parents should refrain from putting undue pressure on their children’s studies.

Children should eat properly, eat less junk food, don’t use computers and phones excessively, don’t spend too much time in the sun and noise, sleep properly, and keep them happy.

Physical ailments, such as eye problems, ear infections, sinusitis, viral febrile infections, brain tumours, blood vessel problems, head injuries, and drug side effects, can cause headaches.

At this time, experts said that there is a direct or indirect headache due to corona. They said one of the symptoms of COVID disease is headache. And those who are not affected by this disease are increasing their anxiety and fear.

Apart from this, the current situation is worrying about the future, especially for the students. Depression, anxiety, and stress are increasing among them. All these are enough to increase the pain of headaches and migraines. So at this time, everyone should not panic or worry unnecessarily.

The discussion also highlighted another issue—the problem of vertigo. There is a type of migraine where the patient suddenly feels dizzy. This condition is described as a vertigo migraine.

This type of migraine is more prone to dizziness than headaches. In addition, tension-type headaches can accompany the rotation.

That is, it is not a physical problem, but the main cause of dizziness or vertigo is mental exhaustion. However, if someone experiences fainting after turning their head, convulsions, hearing loss, or paralysis of the hands and feet, it should be understood that these symptoms do not result from a migraine or tension headache.

The guests advised the students to continue their studies and other creative activities without taking any kind of mental pressure, without worrying about what will happen in the future, and to accept the present time naturally.

Enjoying life in all circumstances can provide relief from many other complicated situations besides headaches. Then you will get relief from many other complicated situations in life, besides headaches.
