Were you looking for information about Botulism? Botchilism is a common misspelling of botulism.
Botulism is an uncommon but serious illness that is caused by a natural poison produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. This poison prevents certain nerves from functioning, resulting in muscle paralysis (death can also result due to respiratory failure). Early symptoms of botulism include double vision, muscle weakness, and dry mouth. People who survive an episode of botulism poisoning may have fatigue and shortness of breath for years, and long-term treatment may be needed to aid recovery.
