Up And Down Fever Accompanied By Leg And Hip Bone Pain?
Good afternoon, I have a fever for 3 days, and my bones feel aching especially in the hips and legs. When I saw the doctor I was diagnosed with laryngitis, but until now I have not had any fever. Please advise?
Hello, Elly Susanti. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Fever is a physiological reaction of the body to disease. To be able to make a diagnosis of a disease that causes fever, information is needed about the history of disease development. Therefore, we need to ask a few questions regarding your fever complaint. Besides bone pain, are there other symptoms that you feel, such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, diarrhea, red spots on the skin, etc.? Are there many infectious diseases around your place of residence / work, for example dengue fever? Do you live in an area where certain diseases are common, such as malaria?
In general, some of the most common causes of fever that last less than 2 weeks (acute fever) include:
Systemic infections, for example: malaria, dengue fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever Focused organ infections, for example: common cold (pneumonia), pneumonia (lung infection), urinary tract infections. and given appropriate handling. If there are indications for a supporting examination, the doctor will recommend additional examinations, for example blood tests.
As a recommendation at home, you can use over-the-counter heat-reducing drugs, for example paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use listed on the packaging. You are also advised to eat balanced nutritious foods regularly, drink lots of water, and get enough rest.
