Is 'Breakbone Fever' coming to a town near you? Dengue Fever is a viral illness transmitted by mosquitoes which may be coming to a town near you. It can create muscle and joint pain which is so severe one feels like their bones are breaking, hence giving it it's nickname, 'Breakbone Fever.' Most cases occur in the tropics, especially Central America; South and SE Asia; but cases have been documented in Key West, Texas and Hawaii by people who were bitten near their homes. 28 states in the U.S. now have the mosquitoes which can transmit the disease.
