Causes And Solutions For Fever And Fever For More Than 2 Months?
Haii, I’m 22 years old. I work, every day I drive. I really like to eat spicy, but I rarely eat rice. I was worried, I had a fever from the beginning of January until today, even today my body temperature rose to the point that my eyes were aching, my muscles felt weak. Every day for 2 months until now I have a constant fever and fever until I have a fever which also comes almost every day. If it’s severe, until I feel dizzy to vomit. 🙏🙏
Fever is an increase in body temperature above 37.5ocC (or 38oC in some literature). Fever appears as the body's response to infection, inflammatory reactions, dehydration conditions, abnormalities in the central temperature regulator in the brain. Prolonged fever is fever that persists> 14 days / 2 weeks. If no known cause is clear for> 3 weeks it will be referred to as fever of unknown origin (FUO).
Prolonged fever can occur in the following conditions:
Specific infections such as tuberculosis, urinary tract infections, sinusitis, infections of the heart
Malignancy / cancer, for example lymphoma, leukemia
Immune system disorders, such as HIV / AIDS
Inflammatory reactions, such as rheumatoid arthritis
Drug induced (due to the use of certain drugs, such as antibiotics)
Further examination is certainly needed to determine the diagnosis of the long fever that you are experiencing. In addition to asking for a history of the disease and conducting a physical examination, the doctor will also ask for a supporting examination such as a blood laboratory, urine analysis, chest X-ray, and other examinations that are in accordance with the suspicion that causes your complaint.
Try to consume enough fluids / water, consume foods with balanced nutrition. First make fever-lowering drugs first. If in the next 2-3 days there are no changes and other symptoms appear that accompany the fever, you should immediately see a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
