Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. The bacteria can be spread through the coughs and sneezes of an infected person. Initial symptoms are similar to the common cold; however, after the mild cough will turn into prolonged coughing episodes that are followed by high-pitched whoop sound. Other symptoms may include upper respiratory tract inflammation, spasmodic cough, tickling in the throat, thick and sticky mucus, difficulty breathing, sneezing, lack of appetite, weakness and exhaustion, pancreatic endocrine dysfunction (hypoglycemia, diabetes), allergies, palpitations, joint pain and stiffness, seizures, spasms, paralysis, blood sugar abnormalities, seeking reassurance, perfectionism, feeling powerless and unprotected, and inability to manifest or finish plans.
