hi doctor. over the last 3 weeks i have had alot of stress, i caught a viral infection after leaving hospital, my dog died, and last night in bed i had things on my mind and all of a sudden i could feel a blocked nose, a headache on the right side of my head(behind right eye) and feelings of sickness, took an aspirin and managed to get to sleep 30 mins later. woke up this morning feeling weak, nose blocked on the right side(left side is now free) and still a little feeling of sickness, no headaches now, but on touching the back of my head (right side) its quite sore. i already have a high number of leukos(18,0) due to the viral infection and im worried it could double with my latest sympptoms. i am eating , but sometimes have to force food down and then i feel more hungry when i do that. can you help please?
