Hi there, Many times you get fever in the night, while you are hale and hearty during the day. This makes you have a restless night and then, you are really tired in the morning. This way you don’t get a good sleep or rest that your body demands, and you have a real irritable self. What causes high fever only at night is a matter of big concern. In case you are suffering from fever at night, you need to check on the symptoms first. In case the symptoms match, you need to visit the doctor at the earliest. There are obvious causes that you can avoid to get rid of fever that visits in the night. What causes high fever only at the night, let’s know. REMEDIES FOR HEAD COLD External Pyrogens Pyrogens that travel from outside and try to penetrate your body are what causes high fever only at the night. You will see that these pyrogens tend to produce toxins that can be harmful to your health. Within the body, these pyrogens are produced as a result of monocytes and macrophages. When external pyrogens enter the body, they induce the body to produce its own pyrogens and thus resulting in feverish conditions. This is one of major causes of fever at night. Upper Respiratory Tract Infections Cold and other respiratory tract infections are probable causes of fever in the night. Sometimes, it is just a common cold that affects your body to cause fever in the night. Sometimes, it can also be infection of the larynx, bronchi or the trachea that can cause major respiratory tract infections and in effect, it can cause fever that occurs in the night. Common cold lasts for a few days while other infection depends on the patient's immunity and general time period. Urinary Tract Infections You may also experience fever only in the night when you have urinary tract infections. A very sharp pain in the urinary tract along with presence of toxins can lead to fever. You would need to consult a doctor in this case. In case you have urinary tract infection, it can be cured with some medication and proper checkup. Skin Infection In many cases, fever at night is due to the presence of skin infections. If there are major infections present on your skin that have been persistently bothering you, you will need to get it checked. This could be one of the major reasons for fever at night. Inflammations In case there is inflammation in your body due to allergic reactions to the drugs, you will get fever in the night. It could be a plain allergy that can cause major reactions. Make sure you get it checked as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

When I am intimating with my husband I am getting horrible pain please tell me what to do.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
When I am intimating with my husband I am getting horrible pain please tell me what to do.
Coital pain is mostly due to dry vagina. And more you are terrified it will remain dry. A vicious cycle. Lubrication is a must before penetration. Give more time on foreplay. Once the vagina gets moist. That is the right time for penetration. Discuss this problem with your husband as he may not be aware of your pain. You can choose lubricant jelly from a pharmacy which will be helpful. Even saliva is a good choice. Sometimes vaginal pain occurs due to vaginal muscle spasm called Vaginismus. Doctors don't know exactly why vaginismus happens. It's usually linked to anxiety and fear of having sex. But it's unclear which came first, the vaginismus or the anxiety. Treatment Women with vaginismus can do exercises, in the privacy of their own home, to learn to control and relax the muscles around the vagina. The approach is called progressive desensitization, and the idea is to get comfortable with insertion. First, do Kegel exercises by squeezing the same muscles you use to stop the flow of urine when urinating. Squeeze the muscles. Hold for 2 seconds. Relax the muscles. Do about 20 Kegels at a time. You can do them as many times a day as you want to. Other medical problems like infections can also cause painful intercourse. Treatment will be done according to diagnosis.

There is a pain in the ligaments of right feet. Thats why unable to move Wht I l hav to do.

There is a pain in the ligaments of right feet.
Thats why unable to move Wht I l hav to do.
There seems to be a ligament injury in your case. It requires follows: 1. X-ray to rule out fracture. 2. Immobilisation, meaning bed rest for 7-10 days 3. If immobilisation is not possible then a cast is to be used. 4. Anti-inflammatory medicines, allopathic or homoeopathic. 5. Dip your affected foot in hot water (hot as much you can bear) for 10-15 min, dry your foot and use some ointment like volini gel and wrap it with a bandage and rest. Wish you a speedy recovery.

My full body is painful I am drinking always cool water. Please advise.

MD - Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, Diploma in Acupuncture
Acupuncturist,
My full body is painful  I am drinking always cool water. Please advise.
The temperature in the stomach should not be altered by taking too hot or too cold food or drinks. If altered too much it will upset the digestive system leading to disorders. Hence do not drink cool water especially after taking food. It will be better to drink warm water always.

Hi lybrate-user, going by your doc's diagnosis, there is nothing to worry as such. Cyclic fibroids, in breasts, are benign, transient and exhibit symptoms exactly as you describe. I would advise you to try avoiding caffeine/ products, sweets, chocolates, dairy products, alcohol, smoking, high calorie/ fatty/ oily/ greasy foods including fast foods etc all as they aggravate the condition. However, do include more of fresh turmeric, garlic, ginger, whole grain cereals, leafy greens like broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, carrots, tomatoes, amla, pineapple, apple etc all to your diet on a day to day basis. Avoid flesh foods excepting fresh fish which is beneficial in this condition. Use olive oil for your salad dressings as well as cooking in general. You can also use either extra virgin olive oil or evening primrose oil, as suitable, for gently massaging both your breasts including the nipples to ease out pain. This can be followed by a warm compress alternating with a cold compress for 10 to 15 minutes which alleviates pain. Hope this helps. Take care and all the very best.

I am suffering from headache & body pain.

Prescribe any medicine for it.
Dear lybrate-user, it is some information for you hope it would be helpful. Causes of headaches may include fatigue, sleep deprivation, stress, the effects of medications, the effects of recreational drugs, viral infections, common colds, head injury, rapid ingestion of a very cold food or beverages, and dental or sinus issues. This can trigger your headache: foods : spices, wine , chocolate, citrus •food additives •sleep : both too much and too little •stress : mainly offset Home remedies: •Stay Hydrated •Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. •Menthol and menthone are the primary components of mint which are very effective in alleviating headaches. •Peppermint contains menthol that helps open up clogged blood vessels that cause headaches. It also has calming and soothing effects. •Basil works as a muscle relaxant, making it a helpful treatment for mild headaches caused by tense muscles. Plus, it has calming and analgesic effects.•Simply smelling the soothing scent of lavender essential oil can be of great help in relieving tension headaches. Research suggests that it can also help improve migraine symptoms. •The cold from ice helps reduce inflammation that contributes to headaches. Plus, it has a numbing effect on the pain. •Simply massage your forehead and temples with a few drops of rosemary oil mixed in a tablespoon of carrier oil. •Crush a few cloves gently and put them in a sachet or a clean handkerchief. Inhale the smell of the crushed cloves whenever you have a headache until you get some relief from the pain. •Simply eat an apple with some salt. •Accupuncture: Press and massage the fleshy area between the thumb and index finger, at the highest spot of the muscle when both the thumb and finger are brought close together. Do this for one or two minutes and then repeat on the other hand. Exercise Regular exercise can reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines. When one exercises, the body releases endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. Exercise reduces stress and helps individuals to sleep at night. Stress and inadequate sleep are two migraine triggers. Homeopathic treatment In order to prescribe a homeopathic remedy, it is crucial to discover what is unique about the way an individual experiences a headache. For example, all migraine sufferers may experience nausea, but a particular individual may feel thirsty for cold drinks with the headache. Thirst for cold drinks is the characteristic symptom that sets one migraine sufferer apart from others. There are hundreds of possible remedies for the treatment of headaches, so the key is finding which homeopathic remedy most closely matches your symptoms.
