Symptoms of Arsenic Poisoning

April 25th 2012 09:18
When someone is suffering from arsenic poisoning, he or she may first experience headaches. Later, headaches will transform to a lightheaded sensation. Numbness and a tingly feeling in the hands and feet may also occur at the onset of poisoning. Other symptoms of arsenic poisoning may include stomach pain, bowel pain, tenderness and pressure on the body, retching, vomiting, excess saliva, green, yellow or blood-streaked vomit, a dry or tight throat, lethargy, thirst and weakness. A hoarse voice, encephalopathy, coma, speech changes or difficulty speaking, diarrhea, a burning sensation while urinating, tenesmus, problems with the anus, cramps, convulsions, cold or clammy sweats, purplish-red skin, a sunken face, red eyes and delirium may indicate poisoning. Elevated liver enzymes, hypotension, shock, congestive heart failure, ventricular arrhythmia, pulmonary edema, renal cortical necrosis and garlicky breath can also present themselves as symptoms. A combination of gastrointestinal, respiratory, cardiovascular, neurologic, renal, hepatic and hematologic symptoms may form and point to symptoms of arsenic poisoning. Prolonged exposure to arsenic poisoning may often result in specific arsenic-related symptoms. Cutaneous hyperpigmentation, skin lesions, anemia, lung cancer, skin cancer, hyperpigmentation and hyperkeratosis have been linked to continuous exposure to toxic amounts of arsenic. Neuropathy symptoms are often the first to arise after prolonged exposure.
