Salmonella Symptoms of Poisoning When Should I See A Doctor

Common symptoms for salmonella poisoning include painful cramping in the belly and intestines. Also feeling sick to your stomach, watery mouth, and an urge to vomit may be some of your symptoms.

You may encounter flu like symptoms such as cold sweat, chills, fever, and/or unexplained body aching. In addition, you may feel as if you are having anxiety or a panic attack. I myself experienced the latter when I had salmonella food poisoning.

Diarrhea usually comes along quickly with the salmonella poisioning and acting fast is an important factor in saving your life. If you keep going to the bathroom (diarrhea), so much that it dehydrates you, it can be a life threatenting situation. You should act quickly to seek medical attention if you have prolonged diarrhea for more than a day, or if you have troubles fighting off infections and colds or are taking any medications to suppress your immune system.

Salmonella is known in thousands of different varieties or strains and is commonly spread by food handlers that don’t wash their hands after they’ve wiped their butt!

Salmonella posioning can show up in your system in as little as seven hours after exposure (usually eating something contaminated). But it may take up to a day or more before you notice the signs of salmonella in your body.

It’s very important to wash your hands and encourage others to do the same. Some people can carry the salmonella bacteria around with them without ever showing any illness - they can still infect you though. Experts say that a seemingly healthy human carrying the salmonella bacteria can infect others for up to a year after they’ve been exposed.
