Question: Have I been poisened?
|mat0120 - Sun Sep 04, 2005 4:49 am|
Hi, I don't know if this is the correct place, if not I apologise.
We have recently had a wasps nest near our house, we bought some Raid wasp killer to deal with the problem. When spraying the spray the wind blew some in my face and I breathed in a very small amount-I immediately washed off the foam on my face.
I looked on the internet and found this website
From that diagram I have the following symtoms:
Vomiting &Nausea (I recently went to a party however and had a bit too much to drink & cold)
Fever/flu like symtoms (I have a cold)
Tighness in chest (is this becasue I am thinkig about it all the time)
Rapid heartbeat ( It feels fast however I don't know what my usual heartbeat is)
Diarrhea ( connected to the party-cold etc?)
It is now 3 days sice I sprayed the wasps and those are all the symtoms I have had at some point
Do I have anything to worry about or do you think I am over-reacting?

If it has been 3 days and the symptoms have not worsened, I don't think you have anything to worry about. You may have ingested just a small amount to make you midly ill, although it sounds like your symptoms are related to other things.

Thanks for the reply
My symptoms may be related to what other things? The things I mentioned? Or something else?

I've just counted how many beats my heart does in a minute. It was 102 beats a minute-this is very high isn't it? Whats going on?!
