With Q fever, I experienced severe shortness of breath, cough, fever over 102 degrees for weeks, and constant fatigue. I ended up being admitted to the ICU and they had to place me in a medically induced coma for days because even with an oxygen mask and nasal cannula my oxygen saturation sat in the low 70s. It also attacked my liver, which was extremely enlarged with high liver values.
