Hello doc, I’m 17 years old. Due to lack of rest 4 days ago I had a fever accompanied by nausea and headaches that were so painful that I could not sleep all day, tomorrow I tried to relieve the pain by taking antibiotics and panadol, thank God the fever and nausea were gone but until now it hurts the head isn’t gone yet, what should I do doc?
Thank you for the question.
Fatigue and lack of rest can indeed cause an increase in stress hormones that make a variety of complaints, including fever, nausea, headache, and difficulty sleeping. Aside from that, your complaints can also arise due to other causes, such as viral or bacterial infections, dyspepsia, stress, hormonal disorders, drug side effects, migraines, tension headaches, inflammatory disorders, brain tumors, head injuries, etc. .
In order for complaints to improve, you can take several types of drugs freely, for example paracetamol (fever and headache relief) and antacida (nausea). It's just that, for the consumption of antibiotics, this is not recommended except by prescription from a doctor.
If at this time your complaint has not improved, we suggest, in addition to taking the two drugs above, you also do:
Sleep early and regularly
Don't think too much
Limit the use of gadgets
Eat small portions but often
Reduce consumption of foods that are sour, spicy, fatty, gassy, and oily
Compress warm stomach nausea
Relax and exercise more
Furthermore, if headaches appear unbearable, especially accompanied by high fever for more than 3 days, massive vomiting, and other more severe complaints, our advice is that you continue to see yourself directly to the doctor or internist. In addition to a physical examination, your doctor may also recommend that you undergo blood tests, ultrasound, urine, or other supporting tests to determine the best management.
Hope this helps ...
