How to Identify Salmonella Food Poisoning
To determine whether you may have contracted Salmonella food poisoning, you should:
- Identify whether you have diarrhea;
- Identify whether you have fever;
- Identify whether you have abdominal cramps.
Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
