Doctor:Following an infection, some of symptoms may persist for a while. The symptoms include body weakness, mild pain and so on.
Doctor:It might be possible that her current symptom may be due to recent infection that she had.
Doctor:Apart from this, I think we also need to consider 2 more possibilities:
User:Please tell me
Doctor:1. Recurrence of infection. Generalised body ache and feeling shivering can be early symptom of infection.
Doctor:2. Hyperthyroidism -
User:what shoud I do?
Doctor:If the symptoms are severe, I suggest you to take her back to her treating doctor for detailed examination and evaluation.
Doctor:Perhaps some blood test such as blood count and TSH level can be done to confirm the exact cause.
Doctor:In the mean time, I suggest the following measures:
Doctor:1. Take Tablet Calpol 500mg twice or thrice a day depending on the pain.
Doctor:2. Keep her warm.
