West Nile Fever

i think i had west nile for the past 3 days. i am better now. i am 21 yr old. i had stiff neck, sore throat, achy body, fever, headache...pretty much all the west nile symptoms. i went to the doctor and he said i did not have strep
he didnt know what i had though.
does this mean i am now immune to west nile. or can i get it again??

Re: West Nile Fever

If you truely had West Nile Virus, you are then immune. There are tests that the doctors are doing to determine whether a person has West Nile. If you want to know for sure, you need to have one of these tests.

Re: West Nile Fever

sounds like it could have been flu as well.
Glad your feeling better.
