Flu-like symptoms: Most people infected with WNV are asymptomatic. However, those with symptoms can experience fever, headache, body aches (may cause tremors), joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or rash.

Decreased muscle tones decrease blood return when upright that the heart has to accommodate. Just take it slow. ...Read more
