is an unusual symptom to have when you have listeria. When the bacterium goes unnoticed, it travels to the nervous system and can cause complications. When you’re confused, you may not know where you are. For example, if you drive a vehicle, you may get lost even if you have an idea of where you’re going. You may need assistance in order to get home.
A medical team will take you to the hospital to examine you to see what’s going on. A confused person will not want to go to seek help. He or she just wants to go home, but the hospital can do blood tests and X-rays to see what’s really going on. Once it’s found you have listeria, you may be able to go home after a prescription for antibiotics is written. It’s important to take the medicine as prescribed. Since you’re confused, you will need someone to administer the drug for you.
