Is it okay to have a sharp pain in the left half of the head after a prolonged fever?


Question
I just got sick with a fever nearly a week ago, after the fever stopped, the left half of my head from the middle of my forehead to my ear often had pain and was accompanied by a lot of throbbing symptoms. Is it okay to have a sharp pain in the left half of the head after a prolonged fever? Thank you doctor.

Hello! Your headache is most likely the result of a recent fever, which is suspected to be caused by a bacterial infection. When infections cause chemical mediators that affect pain receptors and cause headaches. If there are no other abnormalities, this headache can be taken with Paracetamol (if you are not allergic to Paracetamol or have liver disease).
This headache after the infection usually subsides and goes away. If the headache is not relieved or persists or is accompanied by other symptoms such as vomiting, fever again, signs of neuropathy, a neurologist should be consulted immediately.
