Inhaled ammonia, pain in groin, pelvic region, gastric problems, metallic taste in the mouth. Treatment options?

i recently inhaled a strong amount of ammonia for 15min proubly.. Why i try to go to sleep right before i start to nod off i start to feel pressure in my groin and pelvic area. Also it feels like my tounge is on one of those nine volt batteries and i feel like i have gas but i cant pass gas unless my heart completely stops when im tasting that battery taste in my mouth.. but other than when i try to sleep i don t feel anything breathing feels fine no groin pain no nothing. Its only when im in bed trying to sleep. In other words im fighting to stay awake so i dont feel that its scary. What do I do?

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms you are having are likely to be related to inhaling strong ammonia. Since it is an air soluble gas, your symptoms are likely to subside after few hours or on deep breathing. Take plenty of acidic fluids to increase the rate of its excretion in urine.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
