I may have had Listeria. All my symptoms point to

I may have had Listeria. All my symptoms point to it--muscle aches, nausea, slow onset, mild fever, diarrhea I seem to have overcome it after about five days of rest. Question: Am I still possibly infected and should get a blood test for the bacterium?

THERE WAS A RECALL AT SAM S CLUB ON FRUITS PACKAGED BY THE WAWONA PACKING CO DUE TO THE POTENTIAL PRESENCE OF LISTERIA MONOCYTOGENES. I HAVE ATE ABOUT 6 WHITE NECTARINES, ONE TODAY BEFORE READING THE RECALL. I AM NOT SURE I HAVE THE ITEM WITH THE PACK CODE. IF I DON T BELIEVE I HAVE THE SYMPTOMS, WILL I GET THEM?, AND SHOULD I SEE A DOCTOR FOR A BLOOD TEST?

I am 17 weeks pregnant and really paranoid about Listeria to the point where i obsess about everything I put in my mouth. For lunch today i stopped at a pizza place and had two slices that were not fresh out of the oven but were in glass case with heat lamps. They probably were not there for too long as it was the lunch time rush. Should i be concerned because pizza was only luke warm?

Hi i am 16 weeks pregnant. What are the symptoms of listeria that can be identified in a pregnant person. I am having a sharp pain in the right side of my brain plus frequent passing of stool ( 2 or more times per day) sneezing runny nose nausea . My entire neck is not stiff just a small side of my neck and only when i move that part. Im also having occasional headaches . I ate a piece of 5 day old refrigerated chicken on monday morning. Then i swallowed garlic to act as antibiotic on monday and tuesday. I did this because a few hours after eating the chicken i felt like vomiting and i had one noticeable episode of diahhrea.
