Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dizziness, headache, fever up and down, decreased appetite, and watery bowel can indeed indicate dengue fever (or more commonly referred to as DHF). This disease is caused by Dengue virus infection which is transmitted by Aedes mosquito bites. This mosquito develops a lot in the rainy season, especially in clear puddles, for example in used cans, water reservoirs that are rarely drained, and so on. Typically, dengue fever will cause sufferers to experience fever up and down (up on days 1-2, down on days 3-4, then up again), headaches (especially behind the eyeball), nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and joints, weakness, signs of bleeding (for example nosebleeds, bleeding gums, or reddish skin rashes), fatigue, decreased appetite, and so on. Although rare, dengue fever can also cause sufferers to experience defecation, such as watery bowel movements, as you experience.
However, you also need to know, that in addition to dengue fever, your complaints may also be caused by other factors, for example other infections (such as typhoid fever, ARI, gastroenteritis, urinary tract infections), inflammation of the intestine, irritable bowel syndrome, and so on. Therefore, if you have not checked yourself into a doctor, you should not rush to draw conclusions.
Check with yourself first to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that your trigger can be identified, for example through a physical examination, or assisted with blood tests and other support.
In the meantime, you can take paracetamol to help reduce fever and ease your dizziness. Perbanyaklah first to rest, eat foods that are nutritionally balanced and hygienically processed. Get used to drinking enough, at least 2 liters per day. Finally, don't overactivate.
Hope this helps ...
