How Long Does Headaches Associated With Listeria Last
I'm 36 weeks preg. I are coleslaw last weekend not knowing I shouldn't. For the last two days I have aches, stuffiness, headache. Could it be listeria?
Coleslaw?: I don't see why you can't have coleslaw as long as it is properly prepared. You can get a food borne illness anytime from anything. As far as listeria, while it is theoretically possible, cole slaw is not a typical food where it is found. Muscle aches, fever, vomiting and diarrhea are the more common symptoms. ...Read more

If you have green: poop and fever, then look inside the belly for cause. You may need a CT, or stool culture, or GI workup. If you have headache with fever, perhaps you need to look for meningitis. In other words, have your doctor keep looking for a cause, those tests you listed are only the beginning. Focus on your symptoms and start there. Good luck. ...Read more

Listeria infection: Healthy people rarely become ill from listeria infection, but the disease can be fatal to unborn babies and newborns.

How long after getting listeria will it show up in blood tests? What if I had it a month or more ago? I am pregnant.
Blood cultures: Listeria testing is best done when one is acutely ill typically through blood cultures. Pregnant women with high fever, diarrhea, myalgias and headache in whom no other more common cause can be identified may be tested. For a potential infection more than a month ago typically no testing is done and fetal surveillance through basic prenatal care and ultrasound are done. ...Read more
I am 13 weeks pregnant and ate queso fresco accidentally last night. What can I do to ensure my baby doesn't contract listeria?
Yum yum...: Queso fresco is quite delicious (mexican cheese made from raw milk) and only causes problem if it is contaminated. American cheese is made from pasterized milk, thus less chance of bacterial contamination. Listeria is a serious infection, but rather rare...7/million in us...For now, just monitor closely...If fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc..Consult doc...Otherwise, should be ok... Good luck. ...Read more
