1 Answer:

Hello Fran, thank you for asking at

Your complaint can be caused by several possible conditions such as:

Tension / fatigue in the muscles
Unspecified viral infection
Dengue fever

Because the complaint you are experiencing is not an emergency, you are allowed to take over-the-counter medicines such as paracetamol or ibuprofen according to the dosage on the package to help reduce complaints.

If the complaint is felt to have no improvement with the consumption of drugs for at least 3 days, the pain feels heavy, fever occurs (as evidenced by body temperature reaches 38 degrees Celsius), or is accompanied by other complaints such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, or abdominal pain it is highly recommended to check your complaints further to the doctor to get further evaluation.

Besides trying to take over-the-counter medicines, you are also advised to:

Maintaining food intake so that it is always sufficient and balanced nutrition
Get enough rest
Increase vegetable and fruit intake
Maintain a minimum of 2 liters of fluid intake per day
Improve clean living behavior
Doing a little exercise at least 30 minutes every day
Avoid excess stress

I hope this helps.
