A98.5: Haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome

You have been infected by viruses that can cause a feverish illness and bleeding.

The illness can appear very suddenly. To start with, you can have headaches, back pain and stomach aches. You may feel very sleepy and your blood pressure may drop sharply. It may also cause circulation problems. The illness can cause inflammation of the kidneys.

There are normally 2 kidneys in the body. They filter blood and create urine. They thus help to detoxify the body. Furthermore, the kidneys regulate the blood pressure and salt content in the blood, among other things. The viruses have caused your kidney function to deteriorate rapidly. When the kidneys stop working properly they can only carry out their tasks to a limited degree. As a result, you may only pass a small amount of urine or even none at all. The salt content and acid content in your blood may also change.
