In the first stage, you may experience a painless formation of vesicles that resemble skin lesions. The second stage occurs when painful inflammation of the lymph nodes and the secondary symptoms that can result from the inflammation (Bushnell, 2013); symptoms may include fever, fatigue, chills, or joint and muscle aches (Health Canada, 2013). The third stage results in a strong inflammation of the colon and rectum (Bushnell, 2013). If LGV is left untreated it can result in the spread of inflammation to your spinal cord tissue, brain, or liver. Inflammation of these areas can result in death (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2013).
