  • Over the past 3 weeks I have been working hard and to bed late with little sleep. The above symptoms started about 2 days ago and seem to subside when I relax or immediately after sleep, but return after I wake. I am working in Liberia at present and need to know if it could have any relevance to Ebola
    I had a bad headache about 2 weeks ago, but nothing since. I have had NO nausea or diarrhea or muscle pain or any other symptoms that I am aware are associated to Ebola
    Above under medication I am taking Mybulen, which is a tablet containing Codeine Phosphate (10mg), Ibuprofen (200mg) and Paracetamol (350mg). I have indicated Ibuprofen and Paracetamol above to represent this tablet.
