Why do I have a headache and fever after vaccine?

Not sure: Some vaccines are live organisms which have been attenuated, and may create low grade inflammatory responses with ha and fever. This may also occur due to allergic reactions.

My sister is suffering from severe headache and fever. After performing CT scan on brain they told us there is some swelling on right side. Why actually it happens. Is any thing serious, anything to worry?

My sister is suffering from severe headache and fever. After performing CT scan on brain they told us there is some swelling on right side. Why actually it happens. Is any thing serious, anything to worry?

Maybe important: A CT scan is a good first evaluation, but the details it can provide may be limited. Your doctors probably asked your sister to have an MRI study, based on these preliminary findings. This should help give a better answer. Good luck!

Hi I have fever, pain headache. Please help?

Go see your doctor: Go to a hospital er if you have to get seen but you need to get seen in order to determine cause of fever & headache. Perhaps it's a benign sinus infection. But it could also be a deadly bacterial meningitis. I can't tell you, much less treat you online. That's why you need to get evaluated in person.

I'm having 99.2 temperature n headache also Should in consider this as a fever or not?

Fever: By definition a fever is a temperature of 100.4 F or greater. You can still be ill without a fever, and a fever is not a bad thing as it is the body's reaction to disease. A reving up of the immune system to fight. It is just that we feel worse with the fever.

I've been sick for 2 days now woth fever and headaches that won't go away. What should I take?

I've been sick for 2 days now woth fever and headaches that won't go away. What should I take?

Fever & headache: As long as the fever is not high (persistently > 102), and if it has only been 2 days, I would just take Ibuprofen (otc), 3 tabs 3 times a day as this is probably a viral process that will go away by itself. I would wait up to a week for low-grade fever and mild to moderate headache to go away on its own. If the fever is high, or if the headache is unusually severe, you should see a doctor.
