AFTER VISITING THE CORAL SEA WATERWORLD
“HER HAIR BEGAN TO FALL OUT AND SHE SUFFERED HALLUCINATIONS”
[ezcol_1third][/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]After dinning in the Coral Sea Waterworld Resort for only 2 days Mrs M experienced symptoms of food poisoning such as nausea and diarrhoea. Mrs M visited the hotel pharmacy and was provided with medication. However she very quickly stopped taking this medication as it reportedly gave her hallucinations. Mrs M did not leave her room for the remainder of the holiday, and therefore was unable to attend an excursion she had saved up for (a trip to Cairo to see the pyramids) so therefore lost out on £220.00. Mrs M’s illness lasted for 9 weeks. [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]After returning to the UK, visiting her GP and providing a stool sample, Mrs M was diagnosed with Shigella Sonnei. She then developed Pernicious Anemia. This is a condition caused by too little vitamin B12 in the body, which causes the body to not make enough healthy red blood cells. Fatigue occurs because your body does not have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen to its various parts. Mrs M’s hair began to fall out and she must now have injections of vitamin B12 for the foreseeable future. [/ezcol_1third_end]
