The Cause Of Fever Up And Down Accompanied By Headache To The Neck And Nausea, Vomiting?
Alodok, I have a fever at 1:00 p.m., 9 p.m., and every morning. I have experienced this for 2 weeks. My head and neck hurt. Later when I take paracetamol my fever goes down but my head and neck still aches. I’m nauseous to the point of vomiting. I already took antibiotics, lansoprazole and paracetamol. My routine blood check, cholesterol, uric acid are normal. My doctor said gastritis. But is it true that gastritis can make a fever for days? And I still experience this fever for hours. Or I have another infection? Can my fever recover? thank you
Thank you for the question.
Fever fluctuates for up to 2 weeks, accompanied by head and neck pain, nausea, vomiting may indeed indicate you have an infection. There are so many types of infections that can cause complaints like this, ranging from digestive infections, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, meningitis, dengue fever, hepatitis, and so on. The cause of this infection can be very varied, can be bacteria, viruses, or maybe other microorganisms. Besides infection, several other conditions, for example fibromyalgia, inflammation of the intestine, rheumatoid arthritis, hormonal imbalance, and so on can also raise your complaints.
Gastritis, or inflammation of the stomach wall, can also occur one of them due to infection. The most common microorganism that causes this infection is Helicobacter pylori. However, this condition often does not lead to prolonged fever as you experience it. It is likely that, in addition to gastritis, your complaint is also aggravated by other conditions, as mentioned above.
