Hello Amalia, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Reading the complaints that you feel so far, they can be symptoms of one of the conditions such as:
and several other possible conditions
Because the cause of the complaint, especially when it lasts for 3 days is quite a lot, it is highly recommended that you consult a doctor. Your doctor may advise you to do some tests such as blood tests, urine tests, and other tests depending on the consideration and also the results of the doctor's evaluation of your condition to help determine the cause of the complaint felt by you. After the cause is determined then the doctor will determine what therapy should be given to you, and whether you need hospitalization or not. Your doctor may also invite you to consult further with certain specialist doctors to ensure you get optimal therapy.
For the time being before you see a doctor, you can try to do the following:
Forcing yourself to keep eating food even though it feels uncomfortable. Eat foods that are soft and easy to digest to make it easier for you to eat these foods because food is very important to help speed up the healing process
Make sure you drink enough water every day, at least 2 liters per day so you don't get dehydrated and also help reduce your fever
Get enough rest, which is a minimum of 7-8 hours per day
Avoid excessive stress
If the headaches and fever are felt to be very disruptive to your activities, you can try again taking the drug paracetamol or ibuprofen to help reduce complaints with the appropriate dosage on the packaging
Do not use drugs other than those recommended by your doctor
I hope this helps.
