Hello Aisha, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Indonesia is currently being horrendous with the spread of covid infection 19. In fact, not only in Indonesia, this disease is also detected spread throughout the world. This disease was first discovered in Wuhan, China. Until now, the number of people infected in Indonesia has increased, causing excessive concern for the community.
Symptoms that often arise in covid infection 19, are high fever> 38'C, cough, and shortness of breath, while symptoms such as joint pain, headache, etc. are additional symptoms or symptoms that are rarely encountered. Based on your complaints about the swelling in the back, and very disturbing pain. Here are some possible diseases that you experience:
Lymphadenitis. Mastoiditis. - one of the complications of inflammation of the middle ear. Torticollis. Some of the above abnormalities can be distinguished based on direct examination by a doctor. You can visit a general practitioner first, to confirm your abnormality. If you need specialist treatment, you will be referred to the relevant specialist doctor.
For those of you who are worried about covid infection 19 that occurs to you, it does not seem to be the main suspicion at this time given that your symptoms are more likely to lead to several other disorders. But your vigilance must still be done such as avoiding traveling to crowded places, washing hands before and after activities, use a mask when you experience complaints of cough / runny nose, reduce shaking hands, and do not touch the T area on the face. If you have a fever> 38'C, cough and shortness immediately to the hospital.
That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
