In the traditional Chinese confinement picture, there will always be a phenomenon of "maternal wearing a hat or wrap", and no matter how seasons are in confinement, it is indispensable.

The reason why there is such a custom of "maternal wearing a hat or headscarf" appear, the reason is that they are afraid that the hair dryer will lead to confinement disease -then postpartum headaches, so after delivery, mothers wear hats or wrap their headscarves really cause postpartum headaches.Is it a question?

Today, Xiaobian will give you a popular science about what is postpartum headache, and the reason for its appearance is really caused by the "hair dryer" because the postpartum mother does not wear a hat?

What is a postpartum headache?

Migraphy is a common primary headache, which is the kind of headache that can not find out the problem, although repeatedly, is typical as one -sided, fighting medium and heavy headache.Afraid of light, noisy, dare not move, last for 4 to 72 hours.

Although both men and women can get sick, migraines prefer women more. Each 4 migraine patients are women. Popular diseases show that 17% of women have migraine in the world.

Compared to men, women’s migraines are more manifestations of unilateral and fighting, more accompanied by nausea, fear of light, and noisy, resulting in a higher degree of disability …

The 2016 global illness burden study showed that among all diseases that may lead to disabled diseases (15-49 years old), migraine ranked first.

Postpartum headache usually refers to the six weeks after childbirth, and mothers have suffered headaches and pain in the neck and shoulders.

There are research statistics that in the first week of postpartuming, the probability of confinement disease in the postpartum is as high as 39%.Among them, in the postpartum headache, 47 % of the proportion of tension headache and migraine.

What causes a postpartum headache?

However, postpartum headaches are not because of "hair dryers", and there are many causes of postpartum headache, including: non -specific/tension headache migraine migraine first icolite eclampain/Zixian tattoral dysplasia cortex vein thrombosisReverse cerebral leukemia syndrome occupy menia tumor, subdivic hemorrhoidal brain hard plug/local ischemia sinitis meningitis

A study in the United States shows that in postpartum headaches, tension headache and migraine account for 47 %, so here are the focus of these two headaches.

The characteristic of tension headaches is a mild to moderate "band" headache. It lasts for 30 minutes to 7 days. It usually relieves itself, or it may cause neck and shoulder pain.

The causes of tension headaches include the fluctuation of hormone levels, caffeine abstinence, and changes in the living conditions of various postpartum mothers, including lack of sleep, physical overdraft, and insufficient nutrition.Treatment includes taking analgesia, massage or physical therapy.

In terms of pain drugs, acetaminol or ibuprofen is recommended. Under the premise of sensitivity, these are analgesic drugs that can also be taken during breastfeeding.

Migraine manifestation is unilateral head pain, accompanied by fighting, symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fear of light, and fear, which can last for 4-72 hours.Patients with a history of migraine disease may find that the symptoms of migraine migraine during pregnancy will be reduced during pregnancy.

However, after giving birth to a child, migraine may recur quickly. 34 % of patients have migraine in the first week of postpartum, and migraine has a migraine of up to 55 % in the first month.

Migraine headache is not yet cured. Taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and 5-HT agonist such as Shumatan can relieve headaches.

Hard micro -piercing cause can also cause headaches. This is because when anesthesia, the needle is inserted too deeply and penetrates the hard spinal membrane, causing the spinal fluid to leakage, and the incidence rate is about 1%.

Also due to the cause of postpartum headaches, there are many reasons. For the convenience of memory, these reasons are mainly divided into two categories: primary and secondary.

The primary headache includes migraine, tension headache, cluster headache, etc., which generally exist before pregnancy.

The lack of sleep or sleep rhythm after childbirth, anxiety, physical overdraft, stressfulness of mental pressure, and even postpartum depression are the factors that cause this condition.It may become a cause of headache.

And secondary headaches are mostly related to the perinatal complications.It is common in early eclampsida/ec clushed, ductal tunnels, cerebral venous and venous sinus thrombosis, and intracranial hemorrhage.

In short, there are many causes of headaches caused by postpartum. It may not be caused by the wind. Mothers with headaches should carefully distinguish or consult a doctor. In severe cases, they must go to a regular hospital for detailed examination."Confinement disease" listening to the recipe, delaying treatment!

In addition to postpartum headache,

What kind of confinement disease

The traditional so -called "confinement disease" is more like a general name of many symptoms.In addition to postpartum headache, let’s take an example:


Back pain

Physiological changes caused by pregnancy

During pregnancy, with the growth and development of the fetus, the center of gravity of pregnant mothers has also changed significantly.

The change in weight center of gravity causes the spine and the waist section to be excessive forward, forward flexion of the neck, and moved down the shoulders. At the same time, the limbs and spine joints of pregnant mothers have a significant relaxation, which leads to the unstable lumbar and limbs joints, which can easily bring bone bonesMuscle damage.Care of the puerperium (during the "confinement" period)

When the mother was just born, the pelvic ligament was still relaxed for a period of time, and the abdominal muscles became weak. The uterus failed to completely reset it quickly.When the toilet is too long, it will pull and strain the ligament;

At the same time, due to long squatting and sedentary, hugging baby, etc. can also cause poor local blood circulation, causing muscle pressure and damage to cause soreness.


Arm, wrist hurts

Physiological changes caused by pregnancy

The increased uterus during pregnancy drives the front of the spine, causing the neck to extend the forward and sag downside of the scapula. It may be pulled to the ulnar nerve and the middle nerve, which may cause the pain of the mother’s arms and wrists.Care of the puerperium (during the "confinement" period)

If the mother holds the baby for a long time, and do housework, it will keep the muscles in a state of tension, which can easily lead to tendon and nerve injury of the arms, fingers, and wrists.His arm and wrist pain.


Pelvic vein song

Some mothers will have abdominal pain, swelling, and lochia, increase in leucorrhea, frequent urination, urgency, backache, lumbosacral pain and other symptoms. This may be pelvic veins.

This is because during pregnancy, the uterus compresses the pelvic blood vessels and blocked the blood flow. If the postpartum care is improper, the pelvic cavity is delayed, and the fatigue factors may cause pelvic blood stasis and form pelvic veins.

Are confinement diseases actually heart disease?

Of course, confinement disease is difficult to cure, because this is a "heart disease" itself.If you just believe in "confinement taboos", it is easier to associate with the root of the sickness that it must not sit well and fall. "

There are actually many intuition errors, such as "the bus you want to take is never coming", because "the bus you want to take is coming immediately" is too comfortable, and he can’t afford the interest of memory.

After giving birth to a child, there are decades of life to go. For so long, there will always be various discomfort.No matter whether it is a woman, no child, or confinement, people will be sick.You ca n’t attribute any discomfort to “confinement” because you have given birth to a child.

Can I cure it in bed?Of course not.

First of all, the biggest recovery factor is the hormone level and changes in each organ during puerlet.When your uterus gradually reduces the size before pregnancy, the hormone level gradually returns to normal, causing the disappearance of discomfort, and the body can naturally adapt.

Secondly, because women’s postpartum blood is in a high -coordinated state, long -term bed is easily formed by venous thrombosis of lower limbs, and even causes pulmonary embolism and life -threatening.

Therefore, we are not only recommended to stay in bed during confinement, but also encourage mothers to get out of bed.And it should be scientifically "confinement", not in accordance with the taboos of "nothing wrong".

Many so -called "confinement disease" symptoms are actually related to the incident of pregnant and having children, that is, as long as you have pregnant and have children, many of them will have such symptoms, but it has little to do with whether it is in accordance with those taboos.

True diseases that are easily prone to occur in puzzle and postpartum, such as puzzle infection, breast pain, mastitis, etc., are not avoided by compliance with taboos.

Moreover, if you want to avoid these diseases, strictly abide by "taboos" will be counterproductive.Even if the puzzle disease occurs, it can be treated through medical means, which will not affect the long -term quality of life.

"Confinement disease" has no medical basis at all, and there is no need to add a psychological shackle to the confinement disease.

Reminder: If you have physical discomfort after giving birth, please go to a regular hospital in time to find out the cause and scientific treatment!Do not listen to the direction, condition it yourself, delay treatment!
