In brief: Weeks of weakness

Valley fever is often mild and transient with symptoms very similar to routine viral upper respiratory tract infections or even pneumonia.
Most cases probably don't even come to the doctor's attention. Symptoms of fatigue can last for weeks up to months.

Coccidiodomycosis is, as Dr. Fisher indicates, highly variable. You should be aware that this organism can also produce a very severe and difficult to treat form of meningitis.
