ARS symptoms
      #38893 - 08/26/02 11:16 PM

If I had a fever for one day and loose stool for a day 2 weeks after a possible exposure would this constitute ARS symptoms or would they be more severe?

get an antibody test at 3 months..you will be okay
ARS can be severe or mild or may not occur at all
testing is the best way if you are worried
good luck

Could be, but highly doubtful. Now when you say fever, how high was it?

It was about 99.9. It was only bad for about 12 hours.

Also I did have a negative elisa 2 months post exposure and my doc said that since I had my test quite a bit after my symptoms that the elisa would have shown up positive. do you agree with that assesment?

I was going to point out that you had essentially the same temperature as Gabriel Fahrenheit's wife when he invented the Fahrenheit temperature scale intending 100° to be normal human temperature (you can see a version of the story at http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/bc/ahp/WDS/WD.centigrade.html). However, in looking up a source for the story, I am beginning to become convinced that this is merely an American legend, as all the European sources I can find say that Fahrenheit simply converted an earlier scale by Romer, intending 96° to be normal human temperature (see http://www.infoscience.fr/histoire/biograph/biograph.php3?Ref=24 or http://fr.encyclopedia.yahoo.com/articles/kh/kh_2052_p0.html).

Nonetheless, when people speak of a high temperature with ARS, they tend to mean a higher temperature than 100° F.
