This post should describe my impressions about my first real sickness experience in Bali. Unfortunately I catched dengue fever after being in Bali for 1 week, but did not even realize that I have it until the very end. Everything started all from a sudden after driving home with the scooter from Sanur. When arriving home I felt totally out of my energy and just fell into my bed, which I could not move out for 2 days at all. I felt dizzy, had pain in all my body parts, head ache and fever. Moreover I had just no apetetite at all, so that I was just drinking tons of water (which should be the best medicine!!) and a small piece of dry bread just to get some energy for my body. My condition improved or got bad again during the upcoming days. There was parts of the day when I felt better, but then I got totally out of energy just from being awake for several hours. I think I never slept as much as that week ever before in my life. Even though to this time I did not know I have dengue fever, I did the right thing: DRINK WATER, GET A REST, SLEEP. After my condition still did not really improve on the 7th day, I decided to go to the hospital and get a blood test to check what is going on. I probably should have done this a few days earlier. This day I got totally weird rashes along my arms and upper part of my feet, which in my eyes looked even really creepy. Furthermore my hands and feet got swollen and felt very disagreeable. I went to SILOAM hospital to talk with a doctor and get a blood test. Unfortunately it was Sunday, so that there was no regular doctor visits and I had to use the emergency doctor. Anyway, there was no long waiting time and I finally talked with a doctor a few minutes later after filling out the registration form with all my details. The doctor made an overall check and I explained him about my complaints. He told me exactly the rash and swollen feet and hand that I have is a special sign for the end phase of dengue fever. I had to pay almost 2mio. Rupiah for the consultation and two blood tests, one of them was a special dengue test for checking the type of the virus. I was not 100% satisfied with that hospital because the doctor’s English was not really sufficient for understanding everything, whereas 2 mio. Rupiah was also a really high price for the short consultation. 2 days later I felt much better and went to recheck my blood and compare the values with the old ones – this time I chose BIMC hospital. I was actually much more satisfied there because of the better English skills from the doctor. For the consultation and one blood test I payed around 800.000 Rupiah which was still much cheaper. I recommend BIMC hospital if there should be any health problems.
