I have a fever, vomiting or diarrhea—do I have Ebola?
Unless you have had direct contact with or handled body fluids from someone who has Ebola symptoms, it is extremely unlikely that you could have Ebola. However, if you have a very high fever (102 F or above), or severe vomiting or diarrhea, it is always a good idea to swiftly contact your healthcare provider; you likely have a different illness.
