I am a woman, 23 years old. Currently I’m having fever for 4 days, it get better in the morning, but worsen in the afternoon and night. Accompanied with that, i feel chills, headache , my body would also feel pain and stiff especially my joint and my face like the jaws, the teeth and the eyeball and brow area. Since 2 days ago, I started to have bitter metal like taste in my mouth.even when i drink mineral water it taste weird. I also started to feel nausea,but still manageable. During these 4 days i only consume panadol. It kinda helps with the fever, but not with other symptoms.

Thank you for your question. I understand your worries regarding your condition.

Feeling feverish? Check your temperature and get a quick relief.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding you feeling feverish and other health problems you might be facing. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Bacterial or viral infection
  • Dengue fever
  • Allergic Rhinitis
  • Inflammation

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints which are fever and nausea. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.

For metallic taste in your mouth, there are few reasons behind it:

  • Fever itself
  • Vit B12 deficiency
  • Medication side effect
  • Iron deficiency anemia
  • Pregnancy

Fever may be caused from a mild to more serious condition. Get advices from our specialists!
