Symptoms

Symptoms

Why Take

Fever

  • Body temperature that is higher than normal (>99°F).
    It indicates that the body is trying to fight an illness or infection.
  • Minor infections may cause mild or short-term fever.
    A body temperature of 103°F and above is high and can signal a potentially dangerous infection, e.g. malaria.
  • In malaria patients, fever can be low grade to high grade, with or without chills, intermittent (every 48-72 h) to continuous, or prolonged.
  • Malaria medication treats symptoms of malaria.

Chills and Shivering

  • A feeling of being cold without an apparent cause
  • It may occur at the start of an infection and is commonly associated with fever.
  • It is a body’s automatic defence mechanism against cold temperature – an attempt to warm itself.
  • In malaria, chills followed by fever develops when malaria parasites burst the red blood cells.
  • Fever and chills are one of the primary symptoms of malaria, and malaria medication is prescribed.

Diarrhoea

  • It is also called loose stools, in which the passing of loose or watery stools happens three or more times a day.
  • The incidences of diarrhoea in malaria vary from 5 – to 38 %.
  • In malaria, diarrhoea can occur because of the malaria parasite’s injury to the liver, pancreas and intestine.
  • In addition, specific chemicals like prostaglandins cause the development of diarrhoea in malaria.

Body Ache

  • It is the common symptom of many conditions, including malaria and can occur in the back, shoulder, legs, neck etc.
  • Malaria parasites attack the body’s skeletal system, causing muscle aches, muscle contractures, muscle fatigue, muscle pain, and muscle weakness.
  • In severe malaria, death of skeletal muscle can occur due to blocked blood supply to skeletal muscle by the malaria parasite. It is, therefore, crucial to take malaria medication.

Nausea and Vomiting

  • These are the symptoms of many different conditions like malaria and stomach flu.
  • Vomiting is very common in malaria due to high-grade fever, the disease itself or even drugs.
  • Vomiting may pose problems in administering antimalarial treatment.

Fatigue

  • An overall feeling of tiredness or lack of energy. It is one of the symptoms of many diseases, e.g. malaria, dengue, and flu.
  • In malaria, fatigue is one of the common symptoms. High fever and chills are associated with fatigue in malaria.
  • In severe cases, fatigue can occur due to hypoglycaemia due to parasites’ utilization of the body’s glucose for their multiplication and functioning.
  • Besides this, excessive bursting of red blood cells (RBCs) leads to anaemia, which also leads to fatigue in malaria.

Headaches

  • A pain arising from the head or upper neck of the body.
  • It is an important presentation in malaria.
  • The cytokine (chemicals released in the body due to infection or injury) is believed to be an essential factor leading to headaches in acute malaria.
  • Headaches in malaria can occur on one side or both sides.
