    It may take several weeks before one starts to show symptoms of rabies but symptoms include anxiety, drooling, convulsions, sensation at bite site, excitability, numbness in an area of the body, loss of muscle function, fever, muscle spasms, tingling, restlessness and difficulty swallowing. Generally doctors give you a human rabies immunoglobulin (HRIG) treatment the day you’re bitten and you’re given a rabies vaccine. Typically one goes to the doctor as soon as they are bitten since there might be chance of rabies. Once someone actually starts exhibiting symptoms of rabies one rarely survives, even with treatment.

    A person infected with rabies will first begin to experience flu-like symptoms within the first two to twelve weeks of infection. Soon after this person will experience slight or partial paralysis, cerebral dysfunction, insomnia, anxiety, confusion, agitation, paranoia and hallucination progressing to delirium. Large quantities of saliva and tears coupled with an inability to speak or swallow are typical of the later stages of rabies.

    Death due to cardio-respiratory arrest will result 2-10 days after first symptoms appear.
