Breathing problems and burning in the lower back
My son has been poorly after returning from a holiday in Morroco and Fertuventura.  He has had breathing problems really bad and had burning in the bottom of his back.  He has been to A & E 5 times and had attacks in front of the doctors there.  They are confused, he has had urine tests, blood tests, kidneys and liver show ok.  After almost not coming round from his last attack they are now worried it might be malaria.  Has anyone ever had this?  He gets his results on Monday.  His symptons have been flu like, passing out, not being able to get his breath and burning in the bottom of his back, he also sweats shake and feels ice cold?  

Any suggestions?

Hi there,

Sorry to hear of your son’s problems. You have posted your question in a Hepatitis C forum; while there are folks in here that can offer suggestions concerning viral hepatitis, it’s unlikely many of us have experience with malaria. If they suspect malaria he should consult with an infectious disease doctor, I suppose. Is his primary care doctor managing him currently? Will he be referred to a specialist soon?

Best of luck to you both,

Bill
