Answer by  worker76 (773)

yes, it is very likely that if someone contracted a mild case of salmonilla poisoning it would irritate bowels. amore severe case would make someone very sick with flu like symptoms.


Answer by  DrMom (854)

Salmonella is a bacterial infection of the bowels which can cause severe diarrhea and fever. This kind of diarrhea is not usually associated with or diagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. Severe prolonged diarrhea should be medically investigated. Antibiotics may not be necessary but there may be other helpful medications.

Irritable bowels are normally caused by a food sensitivity. Although sometimes viral infections can upset the bowels. Many foods can make bowels irritate, especially citrus or vinegar type foods. So if the salmon is marinated in a citrus type marinade or vinegar it could irritate your bowels. What foods irritate people can vary individually.

If you have salmonella you would be sick and experience diarrhea, and feel quite ill. Irritable bowel is a different condition where you can be constipated or have diarrhea. There can also be the suffering of having the cramps which is quite uncomfortable.
