Question: Strange headache and belly pain

 sharnu - Sun Jul 13, 2003 9:32 am

For two days now I have been feeling a sharp pain on my left side that doesn't move, I have nausea but no vomiting and a headache which motrim won't help. I spend a lot of time outdoors and have had many misquito bites. Is this a weird virus thing?

User avatar Sharnu,
The symptoms you give are very vague. Ordinarily they could easily be dismissed as insignificant to be followed up at the most. However, in the wake of fear from West Nile Virus infections around the US and your complaint of frequent mosquito bites, I think you should seek advice from your physician.
