Suggest medication for dizziness,tiredness and cough

I woke up on Friday morning feeling fine. Then at bedtime I was dizzy, tired, and my throat hurt. By Saturday I could hardly get out of bed my body hurt really bad(felt like I had been run over by a mac truck) very tired I could hardly keep myself awake. I slept all day and night. I still feel really bad tired, dizzy, weak and a cough. When I do get up to do anything I am out og breathe and have to sit done so I do not faint. I was just wondering if I should go to the hospital.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a viral syndrome of sorts. It could be an ear infection that has invaded the throat or vice versa.

Usually, these sorts of episodes of illness are transient and otherwise uncomplicated. If you have a high fever or cannot hold food or drink down.

If you are severely vertiginous (the world is SPINNING not just "dizzy/lightheaded") and have nausea/vomiting or are experiencing any specific weakness in an arm or leg that you've never had before THEN, under those sorts of circumstances I believe an ER visit would be reasonable.

Otherwise, lots of hydration, eat something soft or bland in case you still have a sore throat and all of this should pass within a few days to about 1 week or maybe a bit longer.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
