Fever Is Accompanied By A Headache After A Fall And The Head Hit Hard Surfaces?
Hello dokI I’m 16 years old. I play pencak silat, after that, after training, I got hit after that, which fell head first. Initially a little dizzy and then healed. Then the next day the head was a little dizzy, eh when the body became hot, it was still dizzy until now. If it’s like that, do I get a head disturbance? Then how to cure it? thank you
Hello Nia, Thank you for the question.
How long has the fever occurred? Are you experiencing other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, stomach ache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, skin rash?
Fever is a condition when body temperature reaches 38 degrees Celsius or more. Fever occurs as a reaction of the immune system to infections that enter the body. Head injury does not cause fever. The head injury that you experience is classified as a mild head injury since you do not experience more severe symptoms such as vomiting, seizures, loss of consciousness, vision problems, weakness in limbs, speech disorders.
Fever that is accompanied by headaches can be caused by colds, laryngitis, meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain and nerves), sinusitis (infection of the sinuses), ear infections, dengue fever, and others. There are a number of suggestions you can do:
monitor body temperature with a ternimeter regularly multiply the consumption of nutritious food and water avoid excessive physical activity multiply rest taking fever-lowering drugs such as paracetamol in accordance with the recommended dosage if body temperature rises high If the fever lasts for 3 days or more, please consult your doctor for further inspection. After looking at your symptoms, your doctor will examine you and perform other tests such as blood tests and X-rays. The results of this examination will provide information on the cause of your complaint so that the doctor can determine the appropriate treatment. If you experience complaints of high fever, stiff neck, convulsions, loss of consciousness, please immediately visit the nearest emergency room.
I hope this helps.
