Smelt Jars for contamination. I was taken to ER!!!
    #532922 - 01/27/02 01:43 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Some of my jars were not growing or had one inculation spot growing. I opened the jars and smelt it. It was a foul smell. Next morning my neck was swallen, hard to breath, ringing in my ears, sour thought, and couldnt move my neck because it was in so much pain. I called a doctor he said to come to the ER. There was no way i could drive. A freind picked me up and took me. Doctor had no idea what was wrong(said it was a viral thing), and i didnt want to explain the whole deal because my parents met me there. This is just warning to everyone, just remeber to be carefull with this stuff. I am still in pain and the doc just gave me a percribtion for Mortin IB. Anyone have any advice for me so i could fell better? Thanx

So you can feel better?
If you can score some benzos or any opiates you will feel alot better.

I once got a mold spore in my left eye from contaminated casing. I got a SEVERE eye infection that caused temporary blindness. I had to go to a specialist and get steroidal and anti-biotic drops. Bacteria is very serious stuff.

Damn Jaybin!!! You need to get back to the doctor now!!!!! Without antibiotics you will get worse before you get better!!! Sounds like you can't take any worse in your state!!!! NO BULLSHIT!!! Do like phrozendata said and tell the doc you smelled some mold or bacteria in the garbage! Tell him you're not sure which! That shit can possibly kill you without treatment. Now haul ass back to the doc!!!NOW!!!!

i agree.. you should definitely run to the doc asap! tell them the garbage thing... but no matter what you do hurry up. i don't want to freak you out, but i had a friend who contracted meningitis and had the swollen kneck and ringing in the ears. when his mom came home from work, she found him sitting up unresponsive on their couch... took him to the ER - thought he had OD'd on some drug, but it was just the infection. doc said if she had come home an hour later he'd probably be dead. interestingly, there was a spore distributor that had a contaminated batch which produced a pink/purple contam. it was rumored that it could be a form of bacterial meningitis. this was many months ago and it's highly unlikely you were exposed to it, but take these things seriously and get it checked out

Well i amost f**kin died last night. My troat closed and i passed out. When i woke up i couldnt respond to my mom for some reason. I was like in a weird state of mind (alomst dead). I was taken back to the ER.
GET THIS!!!!!!
I told two diffent doc's about the jars, They both laughed at me and said its not possible! I tried to explain its a bateria growing in an enclosed jar, they still laughed. Fuckers, well they gave me like 3 different meds, one was to open my troat and anther one was an antibotic. I am better now, I am very very mad that the doc's didnt realize what happened.

Good to hear you are back with us! This is why you should always sterilize a jar that has gone bad BEFORE you open it. Be sure there is a way for the hot gasses to get out of the jar or it will explode in the cooker. This is also why you should never ever lie to your doctor. If your parents are there, simply tell the doctor that you want to talk to him/her in private. From a (good) parents point of view, when a child's life is on the line, a little jar of mold in the closest isn't such a big deal anymore. I had a friend in high school that had a very similiar reaction to yours. He landed in the hospital with septic shock on the verge of toxic shock... which has a 90% + fatality rate (so said the doctors at the time). After two weeks on his back getting super strong antibiotics via IV he finally managed to kick the nasties in his blood. Play it safe and toss (or resterilize before you open) any jars that look like they could be bad. It sounds like you got lucky... give thanks! -Peace

The doctors didnt think that bateria in the jar had ANYTHING to do with why i was sick. Which they are totaly wrong! Thats why i am mad, professtional doc's that dont know what the f*ck their talking about! They said it was something else.

While it could very well have been from the jars (and quite probably was), you don't know that for certain. Also, you must be willing to share the blame. It was you who didn't tell the first doctor what had happened. He can't do a proper diagnosis without all the info.

Having said that, glad to hear you're doing better.

JayBin,

Glad to hear you are doing better.
:smile:

You probably should have told the doctors the truth earlier.
Might have helped you recover faster.

I never smell jars.....never.
I look for signs.....if i think a jar is bad.....i chuck the jar.
I wear a respirator.....I have a few from when i was working.
I put the damn thing on and dump the jar out....outside in my garbage can.
Then i have a container out there with bleach in it....for empty jars.
I put all my jars into the bleach container.....good or bad.
I leave them in that til i get enough of them.....then into the dishwasher they go.
No reason to take a health risk.

Good luck to you.
Wish you a speedy recovery!
And stop sniffin jars....lolz

You tend to figure out with age that people that "know what they are talking about" are actually just better at bullshitting than the rest of us, for the most part. Doctors are human and make mistakes just like the rest of us. If you lie to the doctor, it just makes it that much harder for him/her to make a proper diagnosis. In a perfect world we would never need to seek a second opinion. Be thankful that everything turned out well and look within yourself to see what can be learned from the experience. If nothing more, you now know that doctors can make mistakes. Life isn't always pretty... thats why they make rose colored glasses. :-)

Glad your doin better....I never put much faith in what medical doctors say. I've been in and out of the ER numerous times with nothing to show for it....Its always "Well we don't know whats wrong, but heres some vicodin...Have a nice day"...I'm not complaining about all the vicodin prescriptions they were handing out but it didn't really help the fact that I was extremely sick. Hell not too long ago I almost died from a sinus infection gone out of control. I even told them I thought it was a sinus infection when I first went in with symptoms (having had it before) Then a few months later when the infection began giving me severe migraines and constant bloody noses did they realize something was wrong....And I was right after all. Stupid fuckers.

Anyway, I am glad you are doing better...and I hope you don't have any relapses.

man, i worked at two different hospitals, and most of the doctors i dealt with were weirdos and know-it-alls. i don't trust any of 'em, but i guess you gotta do what you gotta do to get some freakin' penicillin.

this is an interesting thread, 'cause i've heard so often to use your nose to see if you've got any contams. i guess that's just for cobweb?

glad you're alive. take care!
