I’m typing this post with arthritic, painful fingers and wrists while having to concentrate really hard to write coherently, because not only are my joints and muscles killing me, my brain has gone into mush mode as well. And that’s not even talking about the rigors and chills.
This is very curious indeed. It’s the third time now that this has happened to me, and each time it was after a visit to Bangkok. I haven’t been to areas with killer mosquitos(carrying Chikungunya, Malaria or Dengue fever, for example), I don’t do sex tourism, I usually just sit by the hotel pool or go for short local excursions. But reliable as clockwork I can expect to fall ill within 24 hours of leaving Thailand, and always with the exactly same viral-type symptoms.
It’s a mystery.
