Sick Day


Wednesday, April 03, 2013



I got hit with a bad case of food poisoning yesterday...
I never had stomach pain like that before.
Feeling almost human today.
Read up on food poisoning from the Mayo clinic website.

"Signs and symptoms may start within hours after eating the contaminated food, or they may begin days or possibly even weeks later. Sickness caused by food poisoning generally lasts from one to 10 days."

SECTION=symptoms


Did not know you could get food poisoning a few days AFTER you eat the tainted food...interesting. Yet another reason why food journals are valuable

    Sorry to hear you were sick. I had food poisoning twice after eating fish. I was so bad for several hours - I was laying on the bathroom floor. LOL My kitties didn't know what to make of this. Glad you are better...

    Been there- done that. When I lived alone, and was lying on the floor between my bed and the bathroom, wondering if I should call 911, but knowing I couldn't get downstairs to open the dead bolt... NOT fun! Hope you are better tonight!
Hugs,

Patti

    Wow! Sorry you got sick. Bet you won't eat that again! I thought that once the food made it through the digestive track, you got better, boy, was I wrong. It's really hard to be a food detective, especially when it comes to yourself.

Hope you feel better soon!

  Hi Sheryl.........
I am so sorry to hear that. I have had food poisoning twice and both times it hit about an hour after I ate the tainted food. I remember being sick from both ends (sorry......TMI) and trying to drink stale 7-up in between bouts!!! I also had to send stool sample to a state lab to ensure that it was completely gone. I'm not sure if they still do that or not.
Anyway.........take care of yourself and I hope you feel better soon.

    I guess it depends on the type of food poisoning you have.

    Hope you feel better and stronger soon. Have had food poisoning twice. First time was as a child, from ice cream, second time was from potato salad at a wedding reception. The wedding reception time affected many people.

    Please feel better soon. That is nasty stuff to deal with. Had it a couple of times and it's no fun! Hope your food journals help you track down the culprit. I had no idea that it could take days to develop.

    I didn't know that either. I don't know what I should do; I can't remember what I ate just a few hours ago! :-)

I guess the only thing to do is to again post on SP what I eat-as I eat it.

    HUGS! Hope you're feeling better today. VERY good site for health information. As a nurse who graduated from Mayo Clinic, I rely on that site all the time!

Feel better, sweetie.

    I had no idea it could hit you days later. I always thought within 30 minutes of eating something bad.

Learn something new every day!

I hope you are back to yourself very quickly!

    Then there's the wondering if it was a bug.
It's amazing how much we survive!
Blessings to you on this journey to a healthy lifestyle - with as little food poisoning as possible! emoticon
