Went to africa and started having a headache which is still present today, also have a cough.

Anyone know what it could be, I'm 19 and ITS NOT EBOLA for you stupid trolls.

I'm thinking typhoid or malaria?? Going to visit GP on Monday as they're closed on weekend.

Lasted 7 days now these symptoms.

Only the GP can make a diagnosis, best of luck with Monday. If it gets really bad call 111 for advice.

Keep a diary and make a note of symptoms. Draw the GP up a timeline.
If it gets dodgy then Chemist is an alternative.

The symptoms started in Africa like 5 days ago and continued till today in the uk.

I'm taking malaria tablets atm and will still go GP to check because it might be something else.

Hehe pesky mosquitoes lol probably got bitten or something idk.

Never felt like this in the UK, started when I went Africa >_<

Theres not really a lot to say as egg said it plus you have done the most common sense thing which is get an appointment, which fortunately for you is quite soon. Maybe not worth self diagnosing yourself into oblivion.
