11:01 Jul 31 2016 Panama City Beach, Bay County, Florida, USA

Spent a week at Panama City Beach, FL. Swam in the Gulf a lot. Came back home and my 16-year old son developed a high fever. Highest we measured so far was 101.4 F. Haven't seen a doctor as there are no other symptoms. He has been taking ibuprofen to keep the temperature down. Last week after swimming in the Gult he woke up with a strong abdomen pain but no other symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea. Pain went away with ibuprofen and digestive enzyme.
