What Causes Severe Muscle Pain, Chills, Fever And Diarrhea?

default
Posted on Mon, 17 Oct 2016
Question: FLU -
I have severe muscle pain, chills, low grade fever diarrhea (upset stomach but no vomiting). I came down with this on Thursday night. I have been pretty much on my back since. The nasty fever part went away by Sat morning. The muscle & joint pain has remained and is intense (I am a fit person - I am walking around as if I am 90+).

I have been hydrating throughout (now using pedialite and water) - but virtually no eating since Thursday (nothing is appetizing).

Finally, I should mention that a week before this I developed an invisible rash on my left side. It felt like a bad sun burn. It slowly dissipated, then this happens.

Brief Answer:
Post viral illness

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Muscle pains, joint pains and fatigue are very typical symptoms seen in post viral infection period. This is self limiting but may last for 2 to 3 weeks.

The only remedy for these pains is my painkillers combined with muscle relaxants.

You can try taking Tab DIVON MR twice daily after food for 3 days. This will surely reduce the symptoms and speed up the recovery.

Need not sorry about the rash, they too disappear with time.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
