Acute severe headaches
In the case of acute severe headaches, those affected ask for advice in the pharmacy and seek rapid help for their complaints. PTA Forum has compiled the most important vocabulary, questions and advice on the subject of "headaches".
It is impossible to concentrate fully on one’s work while suffering from a severe headache. Relaxation during a holiday is also impossible. To be on the safe side many people therefore take a suitable analgesic with them in their first-aid-kit. If it has been forgotten in the rush, most people immediately seek advice at the pharmacy. Especially when travelling abroad they are hesitant to consult a doctor because of these rather annoying symptoms.
Experts are warning people not to take headaches lightly. PTA or pharmacists cannot, however, make a differential diagnosis – especially in a foreign language – but by asking a few questions they can pinpoint the type of headache and are in a better position to decide if self-medication can be responsibly commended.
