Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

How long ago you had this exposure.

If within hours, then the effects can be reversed by the antidote.

Organophosphate poisoning can be treated with appropriate medications in the ER.

If the exposure is several days ago, then you are experiencing delayed side effects from the exposure.

in that case the symptoms can be treated with oral steroids to control the adequate inflammation.

Yes you should see your doctor for further evaluation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
