Vibrio vulnificus food poisoning is a potentially life-threatening condition, and it is important to immediately talk to your doctor if you feel you might have the disease. Delay in diagnosis and treatment can result in serious complications including amputation of limbs and even death. If you suspect you have contracted the disease, or are showing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea after eating raw oysters, seek medical attention immediately.
