I am 35 years old, 3 days I have pain in the neck. Even a headache. But for the last 2 days all of my joints have been very painful. Can barely rest. Do you think this is a symptom of illness? Thank you for the answer
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the neck to the head and then spread to almost all joints most often indicates that you are having an infection. Some examples of the most common causes of infection such as influenza, dengue fever, leptospirosis, chikungunya, urinary tract infections, Lyme disease, as well as many other types of infections. In addition to infection, the pains you feel can also indicate other conditions, for example fibromyalgia, malnutrition, nerve pain, rheumatoid arthritis, metabolic disorders, hormonal fluctuations, muscle cramps, psychic disorders, post-injury, fatigue, and so on.
Mild pain that should not be worried too much. To improve, the following handling steps you can do:
Take paracetamol to reduce pain
Warm compresses to areas of the body that feel the most pain, do not be careless
Improve your posture when active
Discipline to exercise every day
Maintain ideal body weight
Eat more foods that contain vitamin B complex, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and drink lots of water
Don't stress too much
If with the above efforts the pain still does not improve, or if there is a high fever for more than 3 days, swelling and stiffness of the joints, as well as other more severe complaints, do not hesitate to go to the doctor or neurologist for the best treatment. according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
