Brief Answer:
Viral fever suspected

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr. XXXXXXX

Thanks for choosing health care magic.

I am suspecting viral fever in your case based on the symptoms mentioned in your query.

Viral fevers most commonly present with generalized weakness and body ache with mild fever.

Such fevers are usually self limiting and reduce within 5-7 days.

You can take over the counter painkillers for the headache and body ache.

Bed rest and fluid diet is recommended.

Water intake of at least 3-4 liters per day is advised.

If your symptoms do not reduce within the next three days, you need to get in touch with a GP nearby you to get examined in detail to rule out other causes.

I hope I have helped you with this answer.

Please get back if I can assist you further,

Thanks.

Hi, I m a single, full-time father to three teenaged sons, a successful, work-from-home freelance writer. My life is grand, full of love and happiness. However, about eight months ago, it was like the light s were just turned off on me -- massive fatigue set in, a significant loss in my ability to focus and concentrate, body aches, an occasionally racing heart. I d never had any problems like this before. I went to a doctor, who ran a series of blood tests, which revealed an elevated hematocrit -- not severely elevated, but well above normal. That yielded the diagnosis of polycythemia which, if you know anything about, is a condition almost always caused by something else. A CT scan of my abdomen revealed a 3-cm gallstone, a 2.7-cm hemangioma on my liver, but everything else looked good. My EKG was good. Everything else was normal. I m set to do a sleep study in a couple of weeks to rule out sleep apnea, a condition I am doubtful that I have. But I feel terrible almost all the time -- severe fatigue, tremendous difficulty concentrating and focusing (and, of course, getting my work done), body aches (especially in the left shoulder), etc. My doctor last week prescribed Vyvanse to help boost energy levels and focus, and that seems to help a little bit, but only a little bit. I m doing my very best to keep it all together for my sons, who have no idea I m feeling this way. In 1992, I had a congenital blockage removed from my right kidney, resulting in function of about 15% on that side. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Chrone’s Disease, but have had no problems – and taken no rela ted medications – since that initial illness. I have suffered for several years with erectile dysfunction, which is treated, usually effectively, with Viagra. I am on no other medications, have never had any troubles with depression or anxiety. I am absolutely determined to feel better. I have far too much I want and need to do in this, not least of all raise three good men. By the by, I m a 43-year old male, in good shape, practice yoga regularly (or did, until the last couple months). I would DEEPLY appreciate any thoughts or comments on what the heck might be happening here. Thank you so much.

For the past two days, I have been experiencing extreme pain in my lower esophageal sphincter when I eat, drink, burp, etc. It isn t heartburn but its a very sharp deep pain. I also happen to have a fever right now, body aches, and a headache (flu symptons). I am not sure if the problem I am having is somehow related to my flu or if it is something more serious. Any information would be appreciated.

Hello, I've been experiencing the following symptoms lately: dizziness, nausea, constipation, mild headaches, abdominal cramping, sleep problems even though tired, body aches, intensified sense of smell. I've thought I could be pregnant, however I've had two normal periods since intercourse, but heard that birth control (which im on) can force periods. What could be the cause of my symptoms? This has been going on for quite a while, and seems to get worse, I feel very sick all the time.

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.
