INDIANAPOLIS - A mosquito bite may seem annoying or like an inconvenience -- but in certain parts of the world, it can turn into much worse.
The chikungunya virus isn't in the U.S., but one Indiana woman contracted it while on a trip to Haiti.
Michelle Curran said she returned home three weeks ago -- after getting sick at the end of a year-long mission trip.
She said the so-called "breaking bone disease" left her in bed for days -- and even weeks later, she's still feeling some pain.
"Like right now I still have lingering arthritic pains it kind of feels like really bad shin splints and it's hard to clench my hands and that sort of thing. But it's not as bad as it was in the first three to four days of the symptoms," Curran said.
The virus can only spread through the bite of an infected mosquito.
An Allen County resident who recently traveled to the Caribbean tested positive for the virus, but he is doing well in his recovery.
