West Nile Virus ??
« on: October 04, 2011, 07:20:23 PM »
I wonder if I have contracted it.  I Googled WNV and the symptoms match.   :-\

I'll call the Doctor in the morning.  I got no time for this foolishness.  My Son and I leave for Colorado two weeks from today.

Just trying to reason it out.  I did get several mosquito bites last week, and an article in today's newspaper stated that we have a verified case of WNV here in Lincoln County.  (power of suggestion)  I'll be buzzing the Dr. in the morning.  They may refer me to the Doc-in-the-Box, depending upon how their appointment schedule is.

Slow down Magic!  If you have mild viral symptoms, they are just going to ride it out with supportive care.  There is no specific treatment for West Nile Virus.  Relax.  Handle any dead birds lately?

MM,  sure hope you only have a non serious bug. I know when I was down your way about a week ago I was ambushed with your Brokehaven pest several times. Hate them devils. Get to that doc and checked out so you can make that Co. hunting trip. Get well and good luck. bg

Hope you do not have the West Nile.  I can testify to the mosquito population around your deck. They did not bite me, but Bill was constantly swatting at them when we were sitting out back.

Relax. 

Thanks, doctrorb.  I'll slow down to a mild panic.  I guess that I am just afraid something will mess up the Colorado trip that my Son and I are planning together in two weeks.

Handle any dead birds lately? 

I just could not pass this one up.  Hang my head and confess before all.
 


I have to admit that I did handle a drumstick or two and maybe a wing.    :D

You know you should take this serious. That bird flu is bad stuff. You may want to stay home, treat the symptoms and send me your elk tag :D :D

All internet searches of symptoms of any kind result in the discovery and self diagnosis of a fatal, near fatal, or at the very least, debilitating disease.

Yup, doctorb scolded me heavily and rightly so.  Me running a fever or taking a Tylenol (maybe a dozen in a year) or something is just so far from my normal.  I got no time to be sick.  Stuff needs doing.

I woke up a little past midnight completely wet with sweat.  I changed bed clothes and slept fairly well the rest of the night.  No Doctor visit today.  Hopefully,  I'll tough it out.   ;D

  Must be something going on. I would not let it go too long. Good luck with the sweats and the big hunt in CO.

night sweats can be a symptom of a ton of different things.  Do you have a cough?

Have you had a TB skin test?

As it turns out, my quarterly checkup is tomorrow.  I'll talk with Dr. Jim about it.

101.0 F. yesterday.  101.9 F. today.  I finally ate a nice bowl of hambone soup and I am not too far from going to bed.  The only meds that I have taken is ibuprofen.

My "fasting" appointment with Dr. Jim is at 8:00AM.  The drawing comes after the appointment so he will know what to order.
