Question: Dear Doctor,
Below is my case history:
I got severe cold on wed 11/08 last week and I got abt 100 fever on Wed night. I met doctor in person and was told it could be a "VIRAL fever". I was prescribed "Allegra M(daily 8 PM) and Dolo 650 mg (3 times day) and asked to do CBC test if temperature increases.
I have been talking medicines from past 4 days. Though fever got reduced and sometimes it was normal. I see for half of the day duration it remains around 99. From past 2 days I had been taking DOLO once. One other complaint that i have is that I get extreme drowsiness and breathlessness after taking Allegra M. I have taken 4 doses till now. Please advise if this should be continued.

I am attaching my recent blood and urine report. Please review and advise what should further be done.

My current fever right now is 99 and I feel little tired.

Detailed Answer:
Dear
Thanks for contacting the Ayurveda section of (A)YUSH and after reviewing your case history, attached reports, and answers by fellow physicians, I'm of the following opinion:

1. Most fevers encountered in general practice are viral,self limiting and require only symptomatic treatment, but as you still have symptoms persisting, then mine next approach (If I was your treating Physician) would be:

i. Look for pallor, jaunndice, neck stiffness, abdomen for liver and splee and auscultate the chest.

ii. Any running epidemic in the locality, then that cause be thought of first. (like malaria, influenza, viral hepatitis or typhoid)

PS. One should always try to find the cause of fever by evaluating the associated symptoms.

iii. TSH value is slightly raised and so is the blood sugar value with 3+ sugar in urine (could be pre diabetes or normal because of STRESS (infetion) in the body.

PS. One can later check with an Endocrinologist.

iv. ADR (adverse drug reaction) of Allegra-M itself is Viral infection (cold/flu), drowsiness, dizziness, so could be the problem in you.

v. Since most of the investigations are normal, check with Widal titre, X-ray Chest since additional treatment will depend upon the cause of the fever. (if any) and also because you have taken general measures.

I had a bad cold/flu in August 2012 it cleared up but I got another cold soon after this underlying sense of something not quite right with my lungs has continued. Over the past 3 months i have had cold feet which started with chilblains on both feet, something I have never had before. The cold feet and also tingling in my feet is continuing along with a sense that there is something not right with my lungs. I am 54 yrs old male fit and can still exercise although sometimes my throat becomes dry when breathing hard and can lead to a sore throat which passes quickly. I also have a back issue from playing golf and tennis and sitting down a lot in my work. I have addressed this by stopping these sports and sitting upright. I have most recently thought could i have chronic low level pneomonia. I also think stress could play a part so I am working less and resting more and meditating more.
Can you let me know what you think? I have had blood tests, heart listened to etc at the doctors all come out as no problem. Thanks
