The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea that may be bloody, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Most people get sick within 12 to 72 hours after eating food contaminated with this pathogenic bacteria. If the infection gets into the bloodstream, some people can develop arterial infections, arthritis, and endocarditis. The very young, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with chronic illnesses and compromised immune systems can become quite sick.

Most people do not go to a doctor with this illness, but if you have been experiencing these symptoms, see your doctor. Salmonella infections can have long term health consequences and this illness should be on your medical chart.
