Usually individuals who are infected with toxoplasmosis do not show any signs or symptoms. If you do develop symptoms they will probably resemble those of the flu, with a sore body, swelling in the lymph nodes, high temperature, and headache. Individuals with weakened immune systems may show more extreme symptoms like confusion, poor motor skills, seizures, and trouble breathing. Toxoplasmosis can show worse symptoms in babies. A pregnant mother may not show any symptoms but if her baby becomes infected symptoms may occur like eye infections, jaundice, and, later on, deafness, blindness, and retardation.
