Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada

As long as symptoms pass and you get alright soon, nothing to worry about them like fast pulse or back discomfort. Lymph nodes come up with some skin condition by bacteria, and no worry when they heal.

Eye spot may be a floating particle inside eyeball cavity. Slit lamp exam by specialist will tell. Harmless if solitary.

Please take fruit juices and calcium, vitamin supplements as and when feeling tired. Cloudy urine may need microscopic exam in lab, can not be done at home. If no bacteria or white cell increase, urine may be cloudy due to phosphate crystals. Vitamin D will help. Smell may come from acetone, so test in lab.

Headache may come up due to blood vessel narrowing momentarily and not to worry if not long lasting.
