      My dear, won’t surprise me a bit if it’s malaria. Reading your post just made me remember one time, during college, I went for checkup because wasn’t feeling too well, the doctor called it cerebral malaria and see the distance and actions of the medical staff just because I had recently returned from Nigeria…smh, like it could be transmitted air…
