Should I talk to my doctor about listeriosis?

Most people who suffer from listeriosis have their symptoms go away on their own in about a week without seeing a doctor. This is especially fortunate, as listeriosis symptoms mimic the symptoms of the flu and many people don't realize when they're infected. But if you start experiencing more severe symptoms like a high fever or stiffness in your neck, you should see a doctor right away, because they could be signs of a dangerous complication. If you're a pregnant woman, you may want to see a doctor even if you're experiencing the mild symptoms, as listeriosis is very dangerous to you and your unborn child.
