I've experience several weird symtoms for the past 3 weeks

- constipation followed by dihreaa
- chills
- hot body ( no temperature)
- Chest pain ( never located for a long period, moving like chest pain)
and more recently tensed muscles, and flu ( sore thorat, brown yellow mucus etc.)

I went to the emergency. ( 3 weeks ago)
They did a series of tests on me.
Electrocardiogram. Chest x-ray. Stomach x-ray.

They did not see nothing except lots of feces in the stomach.

I wasn't satifsfied since I still experienced chest pain.
I did a second chest x-ray which was anlaysed by a radiologist. (last week)

Now I got the flu and scattered muscle pain that comes and go.


I'm having questions about anthrax.
How long can the spore live ( out of the soil?)
Do you need to see the spores in order for Anthrax to be lethal?

If I did 2 chest x-rays in a 2 weeks span would they be able to pick it up?
(Pulmonary anthrax)

They also did blood test on me to see if I had high white blood cells and they saw nothing there.

BOTTOM LINE--------------

From almost all the material I read from the net I would have been dead already if it was anthrax. Can somebody clear things up for me?
