So we now can rule out West Nile because that is not contagious, and I came down with this last night as well. But the nurse said that would be possible since Aaron and I were intimate the night before he started showing symptoms. But that is the only way anyone can catch this from him since he doesn’t have a cough.
So I got to experience this thing and I’ll tell you that it sucks. Thankfully I didn’t need to go to the hospital since, as soon as I stated having chills, Aaron was making me drink 16oz every half-hour, and that seemed to do the trick. The reason he got so bad was because he didn’t drink any water which caused his fever to take over and start the shut down process.
So if suddenly you start feeling chills, followed by headache and a low grade fever l, just start drinking a ton of water. Hydration is the key to beating this.
Now, this morning, the fever is almost gone but I still have a mild headache that Tylenol won’t touch but I won’t need to go to the hospital. Because this is no normal virus and it can be deadly if not taken seriously.
