In brief: Malaria Symptoms

may include: headache, fever, shivering, sweating, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dry cough, muscle/joint/back pain & enlarged spleen.
There is a cyclic pattern of being very cold & shivering followed by feeling very hot and sweating. Additionally one can develop jaundice, blood in urine, anemia, eye problems (nystagmus, problems with eye movements), seizures & coma.

In brief: Fever

Fever, chills, headache and sweats with sometimes nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea.
After a week of daily fever, different malaria species begin to synchronize to have fever every other day (tertian) or every third day (quartan).
