Hello, nandaseptiarini2002, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Lymph nodes are glands that play a role in the body's defense system. When there is infection or inflammation in the body, often the lymph nodes give signs of enlargement and swelling. After the infection and inflammation heals, the lymph nodes will also return to normal size. In other words, frequent swelling of the lymph nodes is a sign that there is inflammation or infection in the body. A more severe condition occurs with swollen lymph nodes that are getting bigger, don't go away for a long time, are very painful, drain pus, and cause weight loss. If these things happen, then immediately go to the doctor for an examination.
In your mother's condition, your mother has pain in several parts of her body accompanied by hoarseness. Some of the possible causes are an infection of the respiratory tract by viruses or bacteria which often causes coughs, colds, shortness of breath, hoarseness, fever, headaches, and body aches. Other possible causes are general infection with non-specific viruses in the body, physical fatigue, muscle injury, or joint disorders such as due to the aging process (example: osteoarthritis). To be sure, check with a doctor. The doctor will ask about things related to the symptoms you feel, previous medical history, and perform a complete physical examination. Some of the supporting tests that may be done are complete blood count to X-ray examination. Treatment depends on the cause.
Some of these things can be done to help reduce symptoms:
1. Complete rest (not working, not thinking too much)
2. Avoid lifting heavy objects
3. Take paracetamol or ibuprofen
4. Apply painkiller cream to the affected area
5. Drink plenty of water
6. Avoid stress
If these methods have not improved within 3 days, or are accompanied by other symptoms such as fever, chills, weakness, vomiting, abdominal pain, tightness, neck stiffness, fainting, or seizures, seek medical help immediately.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
