  • Symptoms appear in 1-3 days and include: fever, chills, headaches, joint and muscle pain, weakness, and swollen lymph nodes.
  • Late in the disease’s course it is common to experience bleeding from skin ulcers, black rot of the extremities, and seizures.
  • If left untreated it can kill the average human in under a week.
  • Traditional treatment involves a good diet, rest, access to clean air, and wound care.
