To conclude the story of Ugh Food Poisoning and Probably Not Food Poisoning… After the tests came back the Doctor concluded that I did have Dengue Fever. It has been a long recovery – lots of muscle pain, fatigue, and headaches. But, after a month, I’m finally feeling close to normal again.
Dengue is a virus that infects white blood cells. This causes a variety of unpleasant chain reactions throughout the body. Symptoms persist after the virus has run it’s course until the blood stream has cleaned up all the muck it generated and all the various systems affected by the blood stream have stabilized.
