I had mumps because I did not have full MMR and was not fully vaccinated. I caught it from unvaccinated child during clinical. It was bad. I still remember the pain and I lost 20 lbs of weight. I recovered without complications.
Mumps is not good news for males . Orchitis is not rare complication. About 20-30 % of patients will develop it. However, it is more common in adults than children. About 10% will develop meningitis. Again, 10% is nor considered rare. It is not a being illness. Please, see a good infectious disease specialist if you can.
- Shaking chills
- High fever
- Testicular pain.
