Last night my fiance and I ate seafood, but we stopped after several bites becuase it did not taste right. After several hours he started a high fever. This morning we are both experiencing chest pains and tingly feelings in our limbs.

Thanks for the query.

Chemicals or microbes could cause poisoning from sea food.
Cooking cannot prevent some of the chemical poisoning.
You MUST see a doctor - go to ER as SOON as possible - it can worsen with time.
You need observation for a few hours...

Take care and wish you speedy recovery…
