I need some expert advice for a case study for school. The case involves people getting food poisoning from eating mussels & clams in Alaska. The patients symptoms are numbness of tongue, face throat, fingers, vomiting, lower back pain, & in some cases paralysis of legs. What is the possible danger to these people if they do not get proper treatment? What medications would be used on these patients? How long does the treatment last? I just really need real experience with food poisoning. Oh, and Please list your title (MD, RN). I should go in to talk to a doctor face-to-face, but I know they are busy during office hours. Thank You!
