Ghoulish follow-up: What radiation poisoning can do to you

From here:
Instantly: You’ll probably throw up. The gastrointestinal system is extremely sensitive to radiation at this level.

Within 30 Seconds: Disorientation sets in. This can last for minutes or hours. It is due to the radiation’s effect on your central nervous system.

1st Hour: Skin damage will start to appear. This can look like a sunburn and is characterized by swelling, itching and redness of your skin. You may also start developing Radiodermatitis at this point.
