So here's my story: I drank a two liter of pop straight from the bottle which I later found out had a dead rat in it. I then started feeling nausea, abdominal pains, and headaches the day after. They were noticeable but not to the point where I needed to go to the hospital. The symptoms have lasted about a month. I went to see my family doctor who sent me to an infectious disease doctor. The id doctor took blood and urine tests and nothing came back. The id doctor said that if symptoms continue to go see a GI doctor and get tests that way. My question is even if the symptoms do go away can something still occur out of nowhere that was even worse then before? Even though nothing showed up on the blood and urine tests can there still be something going on inside? Just cause the symptoms get better, does that necessarily mean its a good thing?

  • Funnyguy, If your symtoms have improved I wouldn't worry about it anymore.Your Immune System must have beaten the infection .If I did that I would feel a bit sick for weeks anyway.
