Blood tests show oil and dispersant chemicals, Fox 8, February 6, 2011:
"My parents throughout the summer had told me not to get in the water," said 22-year-old Paul Doom. Still Doom said he spent a lot of time last summer swimming in the Gulf of Mexico off Navarre Beach where he lives. Today, Doom has no feeling in his left leg and suffers with seizures daily.
He said, "in July, I started getting really bad headaches and internal bleeding. I would have nose bleeds and what not daily." Doom said doctors haven't been able to give him answers. Worried he could have been impacted by the Gulf oil disaster, he traveled with his family from Florida to New Orleans for a forum on the issue.
