Those symptoms can include double vision, blurred vision, dilated pupils, drooping eyelids, and difficulty focusing your eyes. Patients can also experience difficulty speaking, facial muscle weakness, a frozen expression, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, and slow reflexes. Gastrointestinal symptoms can include diarrhea or constipation, nausea, and vomiting. Anyone experiencing these symptoms needs to see a doctor immediately.
