    What is the cause of fever, fatigue, headaches and body ache?

my husband returned from a 2 week trip to Niger on Monday. he has had a low grade fever since the previous saturday (6 days), mild headache, fatigue, irritated stomach, general body aches. Our doc had blood drawn for Malaria, but we haven t gotten the results back yet and he doesn t have a high fever. Never above 100.3 Any ideas?

Hello,

The symptoms of your husband seem to be related to a viral infection. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the fever. I also suggest to rest and eat a healthy diet. If the symptoms continue I suggest to do a blood test for further evaluation.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
