How well do you know your diseases and Illness? A forum game

Post by Godot » Fri Feb 25, 2005 10:03 pm

Easy game. I post a hint and a list of Symptoms of the condition, and whoever gets it right gets a point.

Whoever comes up with the most points wins. 2 points goes to where you can get the illness or Disease

1.)

This Disease, or should I say "Fever" is also a name of a famous song. =3 It can be very dangerous, but this song said "It's nuthin' dangerous! It's okay!"

Difficulty: **/*****

Symptoms (Mild to severe):
- Achiness and discomfort
- Loss of appetite
- Symptoms do not appear for several days after exposure and may last for several weeks.

Let's go. ^^ [img]tongue.gif[/img]
