Patient Comments: Measles - Experience

Did you have measles as a child? Please share your experience.

Comment from: Marianne, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: August 21

I have all the symptoms, and yesterday I was told by my doctor that I have measles. When I woke up this morning, my knees and fingers were terribly swollen! I think I should go back to the doctor.
