    "Bubonic plague symptoms include:
    * High fever
    * Smooth, painful lymph gland swelling called a buboe
    o Commony found in the groin, but may occur in the armpits or neck
    o Pain may occur in the area before the swelling
    * Chills
    * General ill feeling (malaise)
    * Muscle pain
    * Severe headache
    * Seizures

    I guess I've had plague, then, since I've had some of those symptoms at one time or another.
