Headache, Weakness, Fever, Nausea, And Decreased Appetite For A Week?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Headaches, body weakness, fever (chills), nausea, and decreased appetite can occur for various reasons, including viral or bacterial infections. As a result of infection, the body will release many chemical mediators that play a role in causing inflammation symptoms in the body. This is what causes the emergence of various complaints as you experience. To detect this infection, in addition to conducting a structured interview and a physical examination from head to toe, the doctor can also direct you to undergo supporting tests, for example laboratory tests.
Apart from dengue fever, several other types of infections can also trigger complaints like what you experience, for example typhoid fever (typhoid), gastroenteritis (intestinal infection), urinary tract infections, malaria, hepatitis, meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord) , etc. It could also be that your complaint is related to causes other than infection, for example gastric ulcers, cholangitis (inflammation of the bile), anemia (low blood hemoglobin), migraines, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
If you have seen a doctor and given treatment, you should first undergo treatment according to the doctor's advice while doing the following tips so that complaints get better:
Drink more 2 to 3 liters per day Reduce activities that are too tiring Eat small portions so you don't get nauseous, but often 4 to 5 hours Don't overeat spicy and coconut milk Avoid caffeine first Sleep more discipline 6 to 8 hours a day Limit staring at gadgets Exercise However, if the complaint is still not getting better, according to your doctor's advice, check with your doctor again so that you can do further tests.
I hope this helps.
