Throbbing, pounding pain in the head can sometimes raise a concern especially when the pain gets worst even though it is extremely common for most people. Common types of headaches include tension headaches, migraine or cluster headaches, and sinus headache. A headache may come with a cold, flu, fever or other viral illnesses. Sometimes headaches can be a sign of excess intake of sodium in our diet. Malaysian foods are known for its flavourful kick usually with a hefty addition of salt, however, those can contribute to increased blood pressure and this could cause problems to the blood vessel in our brain. That’s why headaches ensue soon after eating salty food for some people.

A headache may also be a sign for something more serious. It could be a sign of a brain tumor, brain infection or other serious illnesses. So don’t hesitate to see a doctor if your headache feels abnormal or happen too frequent.
