Can someone please help me. I live in Australia.
Around early October 07 i started feeling unwell, with ....symptoms being....I was shaky all over my body (not too noticeable on outside, but felt shaky on the inside), night sweats, dizzy, nausea, lost about 5kgs weight, very very tired and lathargic, white spot in mouth at back near throat that doesn't rub off, loss of appetite, bad headaches (suffer from migraines since i was 4, but headaches i suffered are not migraine ones).

I had std tests among other tests and was diagnosed with Ross River virus (from mosquito bite).

Started feeling a little better around late January.

Now for last few weeks feel like this again, with all these symptoms, plus diarrhoea this time. I was bitten by mosquitoes again couple weeks ago, I went to doc last week but he says it doesn't usually flare up again....but I heard it can, not common but it can. He reckons it's just a virus or gastro infection....hmmm!

Doesn't anyone else suffer with these symptoms etc or have advice on what it could be if it's not RRV?
