Cause Of Fever?
excuse me, I’m Ichwan 20th I want to ask, can lack of sleep can cause a prolonged fever? because I am a civil worker, so I often don’t get enough rest (less sleep)
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
According to the literature, the ideal sleep time for healthy adults is between 6 and 8 hours a day. This sleep is most optimal when done at night. Although it is not clear what the true benefits of sleep are. However, many are known about the negative effects that may arise from lack of sleep, for example:
Increases the risk of various diseases, such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other metabolic diseases Increases the risk of mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders, tendency to lead to drug abuse. accidents, whether while driving or at work. Decreased work and study performance, etc. When your biological clock is disturbed due to insomnia, your body can release many stress hormones. This stress hormone has the effect of increasing metabolism. As a result of this increased metabolism, the body's heat production will also increase. That way, body temperature can rise for a moment (fever), not prolonged.
As for the prolonged fever as you experience it can be caused by frequent infections, either due to viruses or bacteria. This infection is more prone to occur in people with weak immune systems, including if you often lack sleep. Apart from infection, this fever can also arise due to other factors, for example rheumatoid arthritis, post-immunization, cancer, drug side effects, hyperthyroidism, and so on.
We recommend that, if the fever has lasted 3 days or more, consult a doctor immediately for further treatment. If necessary, the doctor will perform blood tests or other to identify the trigger of the fever.
In the meantime, what you can do is drink more, eat regularly, and get enough sleep and discipline. If the body feels hot, you can first take paracetamol to relieve it.
Hope it helps ..
