Hi Doctor, Since yesterday I have been having fever , accompanied by headache and a real heavy head. The eyes are also really heavy painful. Looking at light also triggers an accute pain for a moment. Further, i just recovered from viral fever about 3 weeks back. Further, am also having body pain and slightly sore throat , but no runy nose or acute cough. Thanks and regards, Varun Lakhotia

Hi Varun,
You are probably suffering from acute bacterial pharyngitis.
It is common after severe viral infection, esp. if not treated well as body's immunity is compromised in a viral infection.
You simply need a treatment for this.
Consult your family physician.
You need some vitamin tablets too.
And don't you worry, there is nothing to be alarmed of.
Take care.

Hello dear
Welcome to HCM
Thanks for your query

Your words suggest you are having pharyngitis, may be viral or bacterial.

Do warm saline gurgling 4times daily for 5 days
Take paracetamol 500mg tablet 1 tablet twice daily for 5 days and thereafter when needed
Take levocetrizine 5mg 1 tablet at bedtime for 5 days
Take Vit C 500mg tablet once daily for a week
Get a throat swab culture sensitivity done if possible.

[Notice if you are developing neck rigidity,nausea,confusion,rising temperature or not...along with the symptoms like painful eyes,headache,heavy head that you are having now ........ u need to check for meningitis in that case]

Don't self medicate.Get a check up from your doctor.

Hope this helps

Update here how you stay.

Take care :)
