About a week ago I had an awful smell above my bathroom and I thought a dead rat had died on my ceiling.
Now after 6days I have found out that a rat had died in my watertank and I have been using that water for bathing, washing and brushing my teeth.
Two days now I have a fever and flu.
Any medical personnel who can help me? Do I have leptospirosis? I saw a doctor and he said I have to wait and see if I turn jaundiced. I know that by the time I turn yellow then I am in a bad state.
The doc only gave me antibiotics for my flu and sorethroat.
Another important thing......I have been making love with my boyfriend. Can he get infected if I am????
Please anyone out there who knows something......I know that leptospirosis is a killer disease if left too late.
thank you for your help.
