Ive been going through some severe harassment and believe

This answer was rated:

I've been going through some severe harassment and believe I may have ingested some food which was poisoned by one of the persons. I made homemade tortilla soup of which I ate 2 previous times, had an illegal entry into my home and on the third time I ate the soup, I've had extreme dizziness and when I lay down my whole bed seems to go in circles and everytime I sit up. I'm very pale, very thirsty, blood pressure elevated as well as heart rate. I don't have health care, but it's been about three days and the symptoms are not going away. I also got a face rash around my right eye.

Hi,

Charogat :

Thank you for coming to this site with your question.

Charogat :

I will only be on the computer for about 15 minutes more, so I will wait to see if you come back online. After that I will release this question for one of my colleagues to answer.

Charogat :

Have you eaten the soup more than once?

Charogat :

(After the time you think made you sick?

Customer:

I ate the soup two times prior to the third time and no problems, I had an illegal entry into home and evidence was stolen and

Customer:

On the third time, I got the symptoms. Dizziness, start to walk sideways, bad pain in head, bed spinning around on lying down, high blood pressure

Charogat :

Is there any soup that you can have tested?

Customer:

168/over 98

Charogat :

Also, there are tests that could be run on your blood and/or hair (with time) that will show if there were toxins that you ingested.

Charogat :

More importantly for right now, your BP is very high and needs to be checked out.

Charogat :

It sounds like you are really going through a very hard time :(

Charogat :

One of the very confusing things about your story is the fact that usually laying down relieves symptoms of dizziness as opposed to causing it.

Customer:

Yes, I have a lot left. On the hair, do I need to pull roots? Can a regualr clinic send off the hair for test?

Charogat :

An inner ear infection would cause dizziness in many positions, but not your other symptoms.

Charogat :

The first thing that you should do is call your local health department (or if the police are involved in the break-in you can ask them if they can help) and have the soup tested for any toxins.

Charogat :

The hair might still be a bit early. It would need to come from the roots, but I'm not sure it would show up after only a few days. I'd have to look into that. But the much better way to find out about it is by testing the soup - which is what is getting you sick.

Charogat :

It was very smart of you not to throw it out when you realized you were feeling bad!!!!!!

Customer:

Given what's going on I do not think it is the ears, but I could have them checked out. Ok, I will do that and get a appointment, Everything is harder when you have no health insurance or a job.

Charogat :

I know :( I wish I could do something to help with that issue :(

Charogat :

If you have no income then I hope you can apply for medicaid

Customer:

Thank you so for your advice.
