In brief: Many things

Incubation time is from 3-7 weeks (historically) but can occur as early as 10 days after exposure.
Symptoms may include: anxiety, tension, drooling, convulsions, exaggerated sensation or pain at bite site, excitability, loss of sensation and muscle function, fevers to 102, muscle spasms, swallowing problems, numbness and tingling. Rarely do people with the disease survive, even if treated.
