Persistent mild nausea/headache

Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni

I am a 32 year old male, generally healthy. For the past 2 days I’ve had this mild yet concerning symptom between a nausea and headache that I couldn’t tell apart anymore but somewhat of a constant pressure on my head. It is especially worrying with the current pandemic and reports of a similarly possible mild COVID19 symptom. I have taken paracetamol yesterday and today but the feeling persist. Appreciate your advise.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern regarding COVID-19. For your information symptoms of COVID-19 infection and other illnesses are very similar. According to WHO, the symptoms are:

  • Fever (more than 37.5 degrees celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sorethroat
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath

Based on your symptoms of headache and nausea, you may answer the quiz on Risk Assessment for COVID-19 to evaluate your health status in regards to this disease. After completing this quiz, you will be classified into several categories. You may be of low risk in contracting the virus if you have no recent travel history to high risk countries and close contact with positive cases of COVID-19.

We also provide home testing services, accessible through this link: COVID-19 Screening At Home and we are collaborating with Ministry of Health. So far, the only information on the screening hospitals as stated in the list from this link. You may visit the hospitals in this list for a COVID-19 screening test.
