Signs usually show up within one to three days of infection. Often, people experience mild stomach ache along with frequent diarrhea, though bacillary dysentery does not usually cause blood or mucus in the stool. Less common symptoms include severe abdominal pain, fever, nausea, and vomiting. Most times, these symptoms are so minor that a doctor's visit is not necessary, and the issue resolves within a few days.
