I have been in Argentina (Buenos Aires) for the past four months and recently, I've started to worry that I have contracted dengue. I visited Iguazú recently and I THINK all these symptoms began around that time.

My throat is incredibly sore -- my tongue feels almost swollen. I have muscle aches in my legs. And I have been having stomach pains, dull small pains that culminated in a very severe stomachache earlier this week. Also, one of the symptoms I read was "bleeding of the gums" and maybe I'm just a hypochondriac looking for symptoms, but I do have a cut on my gum.

I do not have a fever though nor a headache of any kind.

Thoughts?????

  • also agreed, dengue comes complete with a severe, acture fever, which can rise in excess of 104 degrees (F). Without that, it's just not dengue, that's probably good news. Chances of you contracting one of the local, nonlethal organisms is much more likely, and much less fatal, particularly if you've been eating in some of the smaller, local restaurants and markets. If you're worried about bleeding gums, brush more.
