I had fever but a low-grade of 99.5 F, aches and pains like flu symptoms, nausea and tiredness from listeriosis. I had a cyst form overnight on my buttocks that had to be lanced and was found to culture with staph and listeria.

My husband had diarrhea and vomiting for 3 days. At first we thought it was just a stomach bug. On the 3rd day he collapsed and I had to call emergency medical technicians (EMT), and that was on Thursday evening. He was moved to the hospital and died on Monday afternoon, he had contracted Listeria monocytogenes. The listeriosis led to multi organ failure, he was only 56.

I experienced an odd sensation, Felt like the ground was enveloping me at the same time my head felt like it was falling. This lasted 5-10 seconds. Then my head felt heavy. My equilibrium is off balance. I have a dull headache in my temples. I wonder if this is a symptom of listeriosis.
