Headache, Nausea, Body Aches And Difficulty Defecating?
Hello, good evening. I’m 24 years old Shita. My doctor wanted to ask, at first I had a bad cold so that my forehead and brow area were very sore. I thought do I have sinus? Then, the next day I had an incident where I was so depressed that my head was dizzy even though I had dizzy before because of the flu. Besides that, fever is also followed. Then I got treatment, he said if it was hot for 3 days, I was asked to check the lab. I thought did I have typhus? Because I have a history. Meanwhile, the doctor said, I already had a sinus. Then, it’s been more than 3 days since my body is still hot (but it’s starting to look like “summer / anyep “). Finally I checked the lab and the results were good. I am confused, then what am I sick? Because it’s so annoying. Even now I have hard bowel movements :(. I am tired of taking a lot of drugs with different uses. Please help and advice to prevent the incident from happening again. Thank you.
Hello Ni Panjawi,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever is a symptom that is very common in several diseases. Fever is not a disease but is a sign or symptom that appears when inflammation or infection occurs in the body. Some of the conditions that you mentioned above can be the cause of your current complaint such as the flu, if indeed the complaint is accompanied by a cold cough, headache. Likewise with sinusitis, which is generally the main complaint that occurs with excessive headaches and can be triggered by the presence of flu. The presence of typhus that you mention can also be the cause of your fever. Whether there is a previous history of typhus or not, there is actually no significant effect because new typhus can occur because you have consumed food contaminated from the feces of someone who has typhoid and have been eaten by you from foods that contain bacteria that cause typhoid or are known as typhoid.
The conditions you mentioned above can occur simultaneously so that the symptoms that are shown overlap and do require multiple medications. Medicines that are consumed can also be in the form of drugs to reduce symptoms and drugs to eliminate the causes of disease such as antibiotics if indeed the symptoms and lab results shown are an infection that occurs in the body.
In conditions of typhoid or typhoid fever, often the fever on day 3 shows normal lab results so that in some cases a repeat examination is required on day 5 of fever. In addition, a stool examination is also needed if you can return to defecating to see if there is an infection or any type of infection that occurs in the digestive tract. It is recommended that at this time you take medicines that have been obtained from the doctor because the treatment that is carried out does not necessarily reduce complaints immediately. However, if your condition does not improve, it is necessary to re-examine the doctor who treats you for evaluation of treatment and consideration for other additional investigations.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Tiwi
