Dengue Fever ranges in severity.
Easy/cheap blood test to confirm that.
I had Dengue, confirmed with a blood test in Bali, and I hardly knew I had it.
Got super tired Christmas night, went home and slept almost 24 hours.
Severe, strange headache, eyes really hurt and by head and vision seemed slushy.
That only lasted about a day.
Then I went out partying again.
Broke out with red hives on my arms first. Thought it might have been an allergic reaction to something I ate...
Still felt ok.
Got back to my guesthouse and they said, "Oh, it's Dengue! Stay in bed and drink lots of guava juice and water."
I said fuck that! I'm going to a doctor!
The hospital confirmed it was Dengue and said, "Stay in bed and drink lots of guava juice and water."
I also don't think coughing is a sign of Dengue.
When I lived in LakeSide seemed like everyone would come down with it sooner or later.
Even several tourist I kept in touch with got it as they were leaving, and either fell ill in another country, or when they got to their home country.
