25 Most Painful Diseases You Wouldn’t Want to Have

#20 – Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever is mainly a tropical disease and is rarely found in Europe and the United States. This scary and life-threatening disease is spread by a mosquito’s bite. Travelers to tropical countries are always advised to take a Yellow Fever shot before arriving at their destined tropical destination. Although the disease is preventable by a vaccine, there’s no treatment for it.

Most Yellow Fever cases resolve themselves in a couple of weeks while the rest…well, they end up with fatalities. People who develop severe symptoms of the disease such as chills, nausea, severe headache and high fever are doomed to die.
