Good morning, I have a fever, but not continually from Wednesday afternoon the symptoms begin. So I dry lips, sore throat and fever only in the morning. On Saturdays when I went to the mall, I felt dizzy and Sunday when I was walking and at night my head hurt and was very tired. This is me from yesterday not healed and I still have a fever every morning and my head hurts, and my right abdomen feels sore, weak and tired. But I have no shortness of breath at all. I wonder why? Is it possible that symptoms of typhus? At this time I also cough and runny nose
Thank you for the question.
Basically, fever is a condition in which the body is defending the body from infection or dehydration. Fever caused by a virus will basically disappear in a matter of days without a certain treatment, but if it lasts for almost a week, it is necessary to be aware of certain causes of fever. Fever itself has many causes, depending on the characteristics of the fever.
The following are common causes of a fever that has lasted for several days accompanied by a cold cough and pain in the stomach:
Typhoid fever. Dengue fever. Influenza. Common cold. Cholecystitis. You should consult a doctor to find out the cause of the fever you are suffering from, because the doctor will evaluate your complaint further, conduct a physical examination, and supporting examinations such as blood tests if needed, so that the doctor can handle the disease you are suffering in accordance with the complaint.
Here are suggestions that you can do at home for a while:
Get enough rest and avoid doing activities that are too heavy. Take fever relievers like paracetamol. Take multivitamin supplements such as vitamin C to increase endurance. Inadequate nutrition and 2-3L of water per day. Wash your hands properly and regularly, use a mask if you often cough and sneeze. Hope it helps and hopefully get well soon.
