... you! I came down with WNV several years ago. I was told I had a mild case and was not hospitalized. I was able to recoup at home. The problem I have is that I have weird things now that I wonder if they are a result of having the WNV. I would like to talk to people who have had it several years ago and what side effects they have now.
Side effects are for drugs. Sequelae is the word you want here.
People who have it no matter if it was severe or mild, can have sequelae. They can include tremors, dysfunction of motor skills, and fatigue.
I had WNW in 2011. I was hospitalized. Beside having foggy brain for the past few years, I recently developed tingling in hands feet and occasionally feel it in back and face. Not chalking up to west nile virus but neurologist doesnt have answer for me. I am use to not being properly diagnosed. When I first started having wnv symptoms my doctor said it was a mild virus. I told her I looked up my symptoms and told her I think I have wnv she laughed and then so did I. Well after suffering 2 more weeks my family dragged me to hospital where they told me I had meningitis. After a week in the hospital it was confirmed that I had wnv. It took another month to feel better. Just looking for answers and would like to know what weird things you are experiencing.
Six years after coming down with West Nile, what's left that I battle with is slight insomnia, worst-case scenario imaginations, slow mental processing, and still some sexual confusion.
My symptoms didn't get really bad until six months after I was released from the hospital. And those irrational fears and imaginations, suicidal thoughts, extreme sexual confusion, fear of nudity, fear of God, and extreme loss of confidence were heavy struggles for at least four years.
