Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Initially, my problem started with a headache, and I felt shaky and dizzy the next day. I felt the same for around four days and went to the hospital. They said that I was dehydrated. But they did not give me anything for it and sent me home. I still have a headache, shaky, dizzy and feel almost worse. What should I do?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I am sorry to hear about your persistent troubles.

  • You need to have plenty of oral fluids. Take Paracetamol 500 mg up to three times a day to relieve the symptoms.
  • Headaches could be because of multiple reasons. I am enlisting the most common causes.
  • Are you working too much on the computer? Persistent headaches could also be due to excessive eye strain. Get your vision testing done.
  • Try to self-evaluate and find the cause. Till then, for relief, you can have Paracetamol. Take care.
