Hello doctor,

After I ate some street food, my body quickly deteriorated to the extent that my muscles were severely weakened and I can say that my skin and bones are stuck together in many places of my body. I am a 21-year-old male. I want to know what kind of poison they may have put in that food. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern.

It is difficult to determine what kind of poison may have been put in your food without more information and a thorough investigation. However, the symptoms you describe are concerning and may indicate poisoning or an allergic reaction. Some common symptoms of poisoning or an allergic reaction include muscle weakness, difficulty breathing, skin rash, vomiting, and diarrhea. Do you have any of these symptoms? If you have any remaining food or drink from the meal that you suspect may have caused your symptoms, it is important to save it for analysis. You can also provide a sample of your blood, urine, or stool to help determine the cause of your symptoms.

It is important to note that intentional poisoning is a serious crime, and if you suspect that someone has intentionally poisoned you, you should report it to the authorities immediately.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and take care.
