Dengue hemorrhagic fever

Post by username » Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:41 pm

Hey guys, I'd like your thoughts on this. Maybe I'm just scaring myself for nothing.

I've spent the last few days with a high fever. I suspected Dengue, but I didn't take any tests. Yesterday the fever resided and I started to feel a lot better. This morning I got a rash over my body, which to me confirmed my suspicions of dengue, and I felt relieved, because it was over. Then I noticed a lot of bruises on my legs, and some of the other symptoms for the more serious Dengue hemorrhagic fever. Reading online they say you should contact a health provider immediately if you experience those symptoms.

So I feel kind of fine now, but I've read that's normal at this stage. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow morning, but I don't know if I should look for some other warning signs throughout the evening, if it is in fact hemorrhagic fever. Am I just being a hypochondriac?
