Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend who claims she has fiberglass poisoning. how can one tell if you have it and what are the symptoms? she said I have it also but I feel just fine.

Doctor's Assistant: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

What more information do you need to know?

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

She said there were fleas at first, then she had bed bugs and I don't know what else she said her fingers were split open and there were black spots in the cuts. she is in a hospital as they think she is nuts or not all there.

Hello,

Fiberglass poisoning can cause breathing problems like cough,sneezing,shortness of breath,skin rash,blisters formation,sometimes crusting.

The symptoms can range from mild to severe.

If you don't have such symptoms and not occupationally exposure to fibre glass then chances of poisoning are very less in your case.

Hope this helps.

Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
Please to not forget a positive rating.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
