Thank you for posting your query.

Sometimes, you can get these symptoms in the period, when you are just recovering from a kidney infection. Common symptoms include fatigue, weakness, tiredness, dizziness and headaches.

You need to be in positive frame of mind and the best part is this period does not last too long.

Please ensure you have regular and nutritious food, including fruits and plenty of juices. Add some dry fruits and milk in your diet.

Increase your physical activity in a graded fashion. You may start with an evening walk, as you don't feel too well in the mornings.

Regarding medications, you may take etoricoxib or naproxen for headache and betahistine for dizziness, as and when necessary.

Wishing you good health,
