Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Could it be a virus even though I've been feeling like this for nearly 3 weeks, ever since I had the yoghurt?
Also, are serologys accurate and reliable ways to determine listeriosis? I hear all sorts of things and don't know what to believe. I just want to feel well. I'm petrified that the baby has been harmed. I only had a scan on Thursday. Everything looked fine; quite small though but sonographer said within normal means.
Thank you for the advice you have given me so far. Much appreciated. I have a couple more questions as the situation has progressed and then I will give you excellent feedback and a bonus.
i dkscovered the other day that in the uk ( nhs ) they now don't offer listeria serologys which is a shame. However, the doctor spoke to a consultant and said that the way they test it here is by stool sample because technology has advanced . They said I tested negative for listeria and to be reassured. My first question is this ;
i still had symptoms when I did the sample but they became more 'flu like' the day after. The yoghurt would still have been in my system for 2 weeks so if anything was going to be found it would have been ?
Also, I feel less tired and no fever but still coldy and a bit shivery. my stools haven't returned to normal . My husband has had the same symtoms so do you think I have the same as him ?
ive felt less fetal movement the last 2 days but there is still a heartbeat. Any reason to worry at this stage?
Sorry for for the extra questions . All of this has triggered my ocd and because I still feel poorly it's making it worse. If I had started to feel better I wouldn't be as worried.
Thank you so much .
