I was diagnosed with brucellosis in 1987. Each year I have had recurring bouts. Never as high a fever as I did in 1987 but I do have fever, cold chills, aching joints, stiff neck and headaches. I would like to know what, if any, long term effects brucellosis has on my body. I am 65 now and since I retired I have read a lot about brucellosis. I have discovered that it can be more serious than I was lead to believe in 1987. See answer
