Fever Accompanied By Headaches And Aching Body Aches?
Morning Doctor … I suddenly had a fever at night until morning on Friday to Saturday, my body was aching and aching too, throughout Saturday my body felt unwell, in the afternoon the fever felt down, but from evening to night the fever recurred again . Sunday morning until night my head hurts a lot, doctor, in the morning I try to take medicine that contains paracetamol to reduce the heat, but the headache stays well into the night, at night I take headache medicine. But on Monday morning I still have a headache. What should I do about the doctor besides taking headache relief? Or is it an emergency measure that I need to take? Or do you think I have an illness, doctor?
