Aches and Pains

Dengue is sometimes nicknamed "breakbone fever" because of the muscle and joint pain it may cause. Pain behind the eyes and a severe headache may also be present.4‘Dengue Fever | Florida Department of Health.’ Florida Department of Health, www.floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-conditions/dengue/index.html

People may typically manage these pains at home with acetaminophen and rest. If a person is concerned about the level of pain they're experiencing, they should check in with their doctor. The pain should typically ease in about a week.1‘Dengue.’ Nhs.uk, 23 Oct. 2017, www.nhs.uk/conditions/dengue/
