I learned today that I have Salmonella Poisoning due to tainted Peanut Butter. I've had violent shaking spells, vomiting, chills, sensory issues basicly the whole 9 yards.


Is there any home remedies or something that could help lessen the affects of Salmonella Poisoning?

How did you learn you have Samonella without being treated for it?
Could you simply have the norovirus (stomach flu) that's going around?

Ewww! I hear that is terriable to have! I say just do what the doctor says to do.. If I remember right, you should NOT stop the dirreah associated with that as it will just grow and grow and can do a lot of damage inside... expelling it is best... IF I remember it right.. It was years ago that I looked it up when they thought I may have had it but it was just a flare up of my IBS.

Well try having banana strawberry shakes. Just blend up with ice to help stop the shakes from going so much. Did you file lawsuit? Food poisoning after its over can still affect you by shortening the healthy life span of organs.

NOT TRUE

There is no long term damage to organs from Salmonellosis after recovery...

The disease itself can be deadly if not properly treated but the overwhelming majority recover completely with no long term side effects...

A small percentage of folks may develop Reiter's Syndrome...but this has nothing to do with "shortening the life span of organs"

its going to be awhile before I can get to having shakes and all. I only ate 3/4 of a granola bar today.

Why would I file a lawsuit? Yes I know the Peanut Butter was tainted but I should have also checked my Peanut Butter Jars. In my perspective it was 50% their fault and 50% mine so filing a lawsuit would be pointless to me. Food Posioning doesnt affect your organs

I said shortening the HEALTHY life span troll.

OP if you want to google around you will find articles on a strain ecoli doing just what I said. So if someone thinks that being this sick wont affect you later...lol...Guess you never had it!

Anyway gdude if you want to read:
Long-Term Ills Tied to Bad Food - washingtonpost.com

"Until recently, doctors were focused on the acute phase of food-borne infections, but since the 1990s, there has been "a more gradual recognition that some of the pathogens do have long-term [effects]," said Marguerite Neill, an infectious-disease specialist who teaches at Brown University. "We're already on the right track in terms of [saying] food-borne illness is more than diarrhea and may end up with long-term [illnesses]." Some doctors are now wondering, for example, whether food-borne infections trigger irritable bowel syndrome and colitis, said Andrew Pavia, an infectious-disease expert at the University of Utah.

However, long-term health effects of food-borne infections are hard to study, for a variety of reasons. First, it is tough to prove a link between some of these illnesses and later chronic conditions such as arthritis. Second, despite annual outbreaks across the nation, the subject hasn't attracted much public attention or funding, Neill said. Also, federal health-care privacy laws make it difficult for researchers to approach anyone who is not in their direct care."


It goes over how a discovered strain of e.coli will affect you long term and how these diseased stated are under studied as to what long term effects are. Germs always evolve and get stronger.

Salmonella is basically a flu. if your healthy there is no need to worry. It will take a few weeks before your back to normal. Avoid eating sugar since it weakens your immune system. You will get better soon so hang in there.

What product did you get it from? Was it from that same disgusting peanut butter paste plant? They had no regards for sanitation and we will all suffer when PB is chemichally treated because its too much work for a PB plant to mantain sanitary conditions.

Try reading the Original Post Trollette

The post was about SALMONELLA not E Coli....

Once again, there is no link between organ damage and Salmonellosis...feel free to find something that links those...

Of course you could always just continue to make things up which is your usual M.O.......

Reading comprehension....try it for a change
