Doctor thinks I picked up zika in Mexico

Can't be 100% because the blood test takes a month.

I had the pink eye. Now it's the muscle pain (not really pain, just tightness in my torso) and the red spots all over.

This should be interesting.

I went in yesterday. Talked to a couple people. They said I fit.

I don't think it's either of the two things you mentioned. The spots don't itch and they're not tender. It's more muscle tightness than pain or joint pain.

Where in Mexico were you? My wife has been dealing a bit with fatigue since we were down in February at Playa del Carmen.

Drove down the whole Baja Peninsula over 4 days and stayed in San Jose del Cabo for 4 days then drove home to Portland

Hope that your treatment for zika goes well so you can remember the trip. It must have been a fantastic one!
