Ask The Doctor > Questions & Answers > Meat makes me sick with a twist, I’m not a vegetarian

Patient: I am not a vegetarian but recently meat makes me really sick, any ideas?



Symptoms: Lightheadedness, weakness throughout body, slight headaches, stomach pain

Doctor: Thank you for contacting ask the doctor. There is a possibility of a parasitic infestation or a bacterial infection. A s tool examination, blood smear , CBC are some recommended test. I recommened a visit to the physician and discussion of your condition. Treatment would depend on the cause and may include antibiotics or anti protozoals. Avoid the meat for a while till you feel healthy again. Hope this information was useful.
