Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 28 years old. My weight is 55 kg. Whenever I am taking cold foods, I am suffering from nausea, headache, and chest pain. Kindly advice.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

You feel those symptoms when you take cold foods, and so you may likely be having symptoms of common cold and malaria. The chest pain could be a symptom of an ulcer. There may also be fever, I presume. You can run a test for malaria (blood film) if it is positive then treat it. Tablet Artemether Lumefantrine 80/480 mg b.d (twice a day) for three days, tablet loratadine 10 mg b.d for five days, tablet vitamin C 2 t.d.s (thrice a day) for five days. Add tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg b.d in case of ulcer.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
