Why I Often Have Headache with FSGS

Why I Often Have Headache with FSGSWhy I often have headache with FSGS? FSGS is a very severe kidney disease. Without timely and effective treatment, it causes many many body malaise. Now let’s have a look at headache and FSGS.

Headache may be associated with anemia.

FSGS is a kidney disorder that can cause glomeruli scarred. As a result, your kidney function declines. The damaged kidneys can not secrete erythropoietin to stimulate bone marrows to make red blood cells. As a result, there are not enough red blood cells to transport oxygen to all the parts of your body. When your brain can not get enough oxygen, you have headache.

Headache may be associated with high blood pressure.

High blood pressure causes FSGS, and FSGS can raise your blood pressure further. This is a vicious circle. When blood pressure is high in brain, it may stimulate the nerve so as to give rise to headache.

Headache may be associated with the medicine you take.

Steroids and immunosuppressants are the most common used medicine to treat FSGS. They can help you control the symptoms like proteinuria and edema, but they have many side effects if used for long term, one of which is headache.

Headache may be also associated with cold, fever, poor sleeping quality, dialysis, etc.

According to the different causes of headache, you should take different measures to treat it. Do not use painkiller without the doctor’s instruction in case that they have renal toxicity. In Traditional Chinese Medicine treatment, there are many therapies to help you alleviate the pain, such as massage and acupuncture, thus you can have a try when you have headache. You can also use some therapies to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function so as to prevent headache, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Enema Therapy, etc. If you are interested in our treatment, please contact online doctor or leave a message below.
