diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, fever, and abdominal discomfort are the first
symptoms of trichinosis. Headaches, fevers, chills, cough, eye swelling,
aching joints and muscle pains, itchy skin, diarrhea, or constipation
follow the first symptoms. If the infection is heavy, patients may

problems. In severe cases, death can occur. (Source: excerpt from Trichinosis: DPD)
Trichinosis: DPD (Excerpt)
Symptoms may range from
very mild to severe and relate to the number of infectious worms consumed
in meat. Often, mild cases of trichinosis are never specifically diagnosed
and are assumed to be the flu or other common illnesses. (Source: excerpt from Trichinosis: DPD)

The average case of
trichinosis is not severe and produces no noticeable discomfort. It
can produce symptoms that are frequently overlooked or ignored – a
slight stomachache and achy muscles and joints. Invasion by a large
number of parasites, however, produces symptoms that mimic food
poisoning followed by severe "muscular
rheumatism." (Source: excerpt from Parasitic Roundworm Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
