There was small as heck mosquitos flying around the house just 2 hours ago and now some even chased into my room. Experiencing a stuffed nose, stomache, nausea and loss of appetite

I don't know if I should just sleep and wait to see if I can make it...

I think it's a bit early to blame your condition on Zika.Symptoms don't usually show up that quickly.

According to the CDC many people will only have mild symptoms or no symptoms. The main danger is to the unborn child. So if the OP is pregnant or is having sex; it would be wise to get the blood test and find out if they have been infected: https://www.cdc.gov/zika/about/needtoknow.html.

Like old_cold stated it sounds too soon and the symptoms sound too severe for this mosquito bite. There is always a chance that somebody was infected with a cold or flu that coincided with the mosquito bite. A trip to the doctor might shed some light on this infection.

Two hours ago?? That's one fast virus.



No, it takes 3-14 days for the virus to incubate. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/23/5/16-1715_article

You might be a guy, but if you really did come down with Zika, you could spread it to a girlfriend or wife. So it should not be taken lightly. But, so far, most of us do not suspect you were infected. But a doctor could tackle your cold and check you if you were still afraid. Here is a link to the CDC's maps of areas where it is more likely to get the virus: https://www.cdc.gov/zika/vector/range.html.

I may be going nuts sure, but considering Texas is a state for high risk supposedly, then yeah


Not worried yet, will see if my doctor’s visit can help me tackle the issue as one stated and ask for bloodwork which I have not gotten in about 2 years now I believe.

Just calm down! As stated - you didn't get Zika w/i hrs. of being bitten. IF you have anything... weather is changing, etc. - maybe just allergies?
