Having body ache, hypersensitive skin, headache, joint pain, pain in neck, elbow, cough. What could it be?

Hello, About three days ago I woke up with body aches, hypersensitive skin to touch and mild headaches that worsen when I cough, sneeze or turn my eyes the farthest in any direction. Today I woke up with joint pain in my lower neck and left elbow . I thought it may be a migrane , but I am not senstive to any bright light. I have mild phlem when I cough, but my throat is not sore in any way. Any ideas?

hi you have not mentioned your age and gender. but by your symptoms it looks more like viral infection also if you have fever then there is high chances of you having dengue and chikungunya.
you need to visit hospital .they will do test for both and treat accordingly.
mean while you need to take rest ,drink plenty of water , take paracetamol only if required avoid taking aspirin, or pain killers without doctor prescribing you.
you need to look signs like bleeding from nose , gums ,black color stool. if any of these are there go to hospital immediately. it is surly not migraine ,in migraine you do not have body ache and other symptoms
thank you

Hi smoodog,
I have read your question,
The symptoms you have stated above show that you are suffering with flu & bronchitis and it is completely curable hence you need not worry. I suggest you to take antibiotics along with anti histamines & pain killers for quick relief . further consult a nearby physician for medical guidance .

Wishing you a good health,
Dr.G.Gayatri Devi
