Come on. You're jumping to conclusions. It's probably just a large tumor dripping pus into the air sacs.

Shaking, "teeth-chattering" chills (one time only or many times). check
Fast, often shallow, breathing and the feeling of being short of breath. check
Chest wall pain that is often made worse by coughing or breathing in. check
Fast heartbeat. check
Feeling very tired (fatigue) or feeling very weak (malaise). check
Nausea and vomiting. nausea check
Diarrhea. No, thank god.

The howling spiritual banshee wail of the posters in the other thread telling you to take your ass to the hospital coming out of your swollen alveoli?

if you have some green mold growing around your food items, you can get penicillin from that.

wouldn't you be partially covered by your EMO?

I think it's just a higher co-pay.

actually, one of the mistakes you can do while you have an unidentified sickness is to walk yourself into the hospital check in.
it's best to call a hospital or 911 so they can pick you up and not contaminate other patients at the hospital.

At this point, I don't want him to go to the hospital. Far more interesting to see what he can incubate.

FYI - In college, I was in very good aerobic shape such that I didn't realize I had pneumonia at first. So by the time I finally went to the emergency room, I was totally laid out. Had to spend the next 4 weeks flat on my back.

But really, don't go to the hospital.

I did that a few months back too. The last straw was going for a ride with a doctor-friend of mine on a day off from work. I was pulling my 18-month-old in a trailer and we went for a longish (maybe 10 miles each way) ride. By the end of the ride I was coughing up a lung and felt like warmed-over garbage. She pulled out her stethoscope and listened to my chest. "You've got pneumonia!" she said.

"Huh," I replied. "I knew I was a little sick."

People, people, please. This is clearly a case of bubonic plague.

And a little bit of leprosy.

Don't worry. You don't die until 108. When it reaches 107, take some aspirin and a cold shower.

ER....asap!

If you want to get really quick service....tell them you were exposed to a level 5 infectious agent.
Ebola would be a good one. Yersinia Pestis might raise a few eyebrows. Hantavirus will definitely get the attention of ER staff in your neck of the woods.
