Chills and Shivering
  • A feeling of being cold without any apparent cause.
  • It may occur at the start of an infection and is commonly associated with fever.
  • It is a body’s automatic defence mechanism against cold temperature – an attempt to warm itself.
  • In malaria, chills followed by fever develops when malaria parasites burst the red blood cells.
  • Female mosquitoes cause fever and chills, which are some of the primary symptoms of malaria.
  • Body temperature that is higher (>99°F) than normal.
    It indicates that the body is trying to fight an illness or infection.
  • Minor infections may cause mild or short-term fever.
  • Body temperatures of 103°F and above are high and can signal a potentially dangerous infection, e.g. malaria caused by mosquitoes.
  • In malaria patients, fever can be low grade to high grade, with or without chills, intermittent (every 48-72 h) to continuous, or prolonged.
  • Pain arising from the head or upper neck of the body.
  • It is an important presentation in malaria.
  • The cytokine (chemicals released in the body due to infection or injury) is an important factor leading to headaches in acute malaria.
  • Headaches in malaria caused by parasites can occur on one or both sides.
  • An overall feeling of tiredness or lack of energy. It is one of the symptoms of many diseases, e.g. malaria, dengue, and flu.
  • In malaria, fatigue is one of the common symptoms. High fever and chills often go hand-in-hand with fatigue in malaria.
  • In severe cases, fatigue can occur due to hypoglycaemia due to parasites’ utilisation of the body’s glucose for their multiplication and functioning.
  • Besides this, excessive bursting of red blood cells (RBCs) leads to anaemia that also leads to fatigue in malaria
  • It is the common symptom of many conditions, including malaria, caused by mosquito parasites and can occur in the back, shoulder, legs, neck etc.
  • Malaria parasite attacks the body’s skeletal system, causing muscle aches, muscle contractures, muscle fatigue, muscle pain, and muscle weakness.
  • In severe malaria, death of skeletal muscle can occur due to blockage of blood supply to skeletal muscle by the malaria parasite.
  • It is also called loose stools, in which loose or watery stools pass three or more times a day.
  • The incidences of diarrhoea in malaria vary from 5 – 38 %.
  • In malaria caused by mosquitoes, diarrhoea can occur because of the malaria parasite’s injury to the liver, pancreas and intestine.
  • In addition, the development of diarrhoea in malaria may involve chemicals like prostaglandins.
