In brief: Fever+head+limb pain

Denue fever is increasing world-wide.
It is caused by a virus and spread by mosquitoes. Some suffer headache, fever, and extreme body pain (as if your bones are broken). Sometimes the infection can go on to internal bleeding. Treat the symptoms with acetaminophen, rest, and plenty of fluids. A vaccine is in research trials, so for now preventing daytime mosquito bites is only way to prevent it.
