West Nile Virus
Once bitten by an infected mosquito, you can develop symptoms between 3 and 14 days after the bite. The more serious symptoms, which can last up to several weeks and can cause permanent damage, range from high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness to paralysis.
The milder symptoms can last for a few days up to a few weeks and include fever, headache, and body aches, fatigue, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, at times swollen lymph glands, a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back, but many people may not even show any symptoms at all.
Especially people over 50, very young children and those with a weakened immune system are more susceptible. Even immune suppressants will put you at a higher risk for getting this illness; keep that in mind in case you are taking those medications.
If you are not sure whether you are suffering from WNV or not, don't hesitate to see your doctor. Usually, the milder symptoms will cure on their own when given some time, but the severe ones need hospitalization and treatment.
When problems and trials come your way, don't hesitate to pray about them. God has a plan in place for solving them and when given time a solution will be presented for even the severe ones!
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
