Hi. My name is Jadine and i am 13 years old. I have been sick for the last week. My parents think it is a common cold and i will get over it by the end of the week. Well here are my symtoms,
-Tiredness Your sick-
Dizzyness Drink lots of water - your probably dehydrated
-Noticable Paleness Your sick
-Sores around lips Use chapstick-
Always freezing cold Your sick
-Irretibility Your miserable
-Excessive weigh loss (5 pounds in one week) Are you eating?
-Headaches Could be part of your cold
I have tooken dimetap, neocitran, headache pills, tylonol and i still feel like crap! Stop taking all this crap and eat healthy food, drink orange juice and water.
Anyone have any answers? Cuz i sure dont!
what made you come to a leukemia site??? Sounds like a common cold to me, but your parents should take you to see your doctor. After three days, I always take my kids. There are too many infections out there that should be checked. Do you have a fever?? And if you lost five pounds, I am sure you have other digestive problems you didn't mention. If you can't drink the water, drink Gatorade.
This is a site for all types of general health questions so don't spaz. You sound like you have a bad cold and you are out of sorts because of it. You need to go to bed, start drinking lots of good fluids, such as juice and water. Eat soft foods such as toast and eggs, soups. Keep warm. Take Tylenol if you have a fever or aches. Stay away from the rest of the junk. Use chapstick or vaseline on your lips and be kind to your Mom. If you aren't better after 7 days, ask your Mom to take you into the Dr. or if you run an extremely high fever...... nasty colds take time to get rid of...especially if you are run down.
