Question: my 17 year old daughter woke up crying this morning complaining of overall body aches, stiffness and pain. She said her head feels like a bowling ball. She has a slight fever (99-100) and has difficulty moving. I had her sit up, take two 500 mg tylenol, use the bathroom, then drink more water and get back into bed. I've never known her to be brought to tears because of pain. She does have her period and is under a lot of pressure/stress because of her online live classes (she stays at home for high school). Also, she did just come back from a weekend college visit....perhaps she was exposed to someone who was ill? Not sure what to do next....hospital OR continue to give her fluids and wait to see if tylenol helps?

Brief Answer:
It can be due to any viral infection such as flu

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query to Healthcare magic.

I have read your question carefully and understand her health concern.

Body ache, stiffness and a slight fever can be due to viral infection while she has been exposed in college at weekend .

Hence try with these advice:
Tylenol every 4 to 6 hours
chicken soups
rest
much warm teas and other fluids
and more important she should be calm

If her symptoms will not relive by using Tylenol than go to hospital.

Hope I was helpful and please feel free for further discussion.

Best regards

Hi,I am 23 years old, 6ft'1 and weigh 210 pounds. Two weeks ago, I suddenly became constipated after eatting lunch. In addition, I developed a dull but annoying pain in my lower left abdomen, near my hip. The weird thing is I have bowl movements but not normal ones like I am used too. I have an issue with anxiety and prescribed medication for it. However, I no longer take it, but I do have manageing my stress and anxiety. I saw my doctor yesterday and he said it could be a gi bug and could have developed because of stress.

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs

Hello Doctor,

My aunt was unwell for the past week with a possible cause of parasitic worms. She had a stay for about 3 days in the hospital which resulted in her being very week. This week when she was home she felt giddy and hit her head to the floor. The various tests conducted have all Thankfully been Fine. She though is very weak and cannot even sit down on the bed. She is currently recuperating in the hospital and the blood, stool tests were norma. The liver tests were having figures on a slightly higher side and are awaiting the cortisol results in a couple of days. The practioners are trying to find the actual cause of the weakness. The ammonia levels were high and sodium was less. She was on a saline 3 concentration sodium. Can you please advise what may be the trigger for this weakness.
