if the temperature is with in 100 than it is not fever. it has to be 100 or more for you to say it is fever. so in the evening when you feel feverish or chills are there that time you take your temperature and if it is more than 100 than consult with your doctor.

Fever in pregnancy indicate some infection. if its tiredness then its ok. but fever is not normal in pregnancy. so get some blood and urine test. so it wil help you to find out the cause of infection.

No, you are not having fever, please don't take un necessary medication. If temperature rises above 100 degree F then consult the gynaecologist or the physician

I'm 37 years of age, around 55kg ,5ft and have been treated for malaria and typhoid in recent time and in the past. I have been suffering from mild pains in my middle-left of abdomen and I now feel the pain in my left part of the chest and sex organ and this has made sex unsuitable as I do not ejaculate now when I have sex and also courses weak erection. Please what could be my health situation?

I have had recent blood samples and urine and stool cultures done. I had typhoid which took months to clear whilst I am in India. I have recently been passing what I know to be part of the superficial intestine (I had a dog who died from parvovirus and he passed the same thing just before his death and which I showed to his vet!) I recently had some diarheoa but not severe. Now, however, just 5 days after the results came back normal, I have a really severe sore throat, chest, back, neck and shoulders. My arms are sore to move and to touch, and covered in mosquito bites. I have severe pain in between my shoulder blades for which I am taking continuous pain killers. My fever is 102 and up to 104, for the past 2 days. I feel like I have severe flu and cannot do anything, even moving my fingers is causing pain!!! Can I have malaria even if my tests came back showing nothing abnormal? My chest hurts to cough, so does my back.

Hi Doctor, i have a pain in my right side of my abdomen, exactly on the place where liver is located. it started when i was in hospital treating for malaria, pneumonia and typhoid fever. the examination result for these diseases in different hospitals was different. but i took all the prescribed drugs. When I check i check my liver except there was enlargement of liver and spleen, they called Hepatosplenomegaly they told me that the size and function of the liver is fine. but still the pain after a year and half is continuing. sometimes it is low and other time very strong which i feel it very well when i asleep by that side. plus i have disc prostitution case which is not treated. So, my question is do you think that the problem is liver case or associated with the disc problem?

Our family is all taking Malarone as we went to an island with the potential for malaria. We have all come down with various rashes. One on the back of the thigh (painful and two red stripes), the others behind the knees and in the armpits. This has never happened to us before. Could this be from the medication, sun, or something like ringworm or scabies?
