5421936 tn?1378849147 Ugh I know what you mean.
8600220 tn?1398955674 Yes it sounds like you are recovering from the viral food poisoning. If it was viral they didn't need to give you an antibiotic. Maybe they gave it to you because they didn't know if it was viral or bacterial so I would continue to finish the antibiotic until it is done or you could develop resistance. Keep hydrated and you should be well soon.
10286987 tn?1410261849 Well, that is how food poisoning works. It is hit and miss. If it is viral food poisoning it would affect more people but bacterial is hit and miss. I went to a mexican restuarant and my husband I ordered different food for lunch I didn't get sick and he was extremely sick for two nights.
Avatar n tn 22 weeks and I believe I have food poisoning. Im feeling weak vomiting using the bathroom my stomach is.hurting like belly ache.
Avatar f tn I had food poisoning at around 15 weeks pregnant and was almost dying! I couldnt keep anything down. The nurse told me if i couldnt keep anything down for 3 hpurs to go to ER. I had to get an IV and hydrated. They also gave me a nausea pill only needed to take one but it worked in like 15 minutes! All u have to do is stay hydrated!!
2026302 tn?1334731062 I had either food poisoning or the stomach flu when I was about 25 weeks. It didn't have any effect on the baby (though how it couldn't I was surprised since I threw up all night long even when nothing was in there) it was a horrible experience but baby was fine.
4392824 tn?1353937963 s been also feeling weak, dizzy, nauseas, feverish, as well as a sour stomach. We think it might be food poisoning, but I've also ate pretty much all the stuff he's eaten in the last 72 hours. Should we take him to the emergency room? Is it possible he's suffering from food poisoning?
Avatar n tn My husband and I are both recovering from flu-like symptoms. He got a sandwich at a deli, last week, got sick soon after, and now I caught whatever it is he has. Neither of us has felt like eating much for a week, except for rice and hot chicken broth, Does anyone have any nutrition ideas? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Adults usually don't get GI symptoms with the flu. Flu symptoms include fever, headaches, cough, body aches.. You could have a stomach bug though or even food poisoning.
2050045 tn?1343153733 If it only lasted a couple hours and not several days it was food poisoning...most people get it without even knowing it because they automatically label it as "stomach flu" if your doctor said 2 go if it doesn't go away I wouldn't worry about it if it's finally over with...
2035383 tn?1329579413 Ok so today I'm 7 weeks Yaay but....idk if i possibly have food poisoning maybe the flu or I sure am hoping this is not what Ms feels like. Yesterday I felt fine I took a nap and when I woke up I felt like my stomach was turned upside down. I was dry heaving and so sick to my stomach for 5 hours and gradually my symptoms subsided by then it was bedtime.
Avatar m tn If the test comes back positive they will treat you will several antibiotics and possibly bismuth sulfite. As for the flu symptoms, plus the stomach pain it is possible that you had a virus if you had diarrhea? Hard to know without all the information and test results.
Avatar f tn t know) and I am wondering if the chicken was a bit undercooked and is to blame for my symptoms. I know everyone handles food poisoning differently, but I just feel like I have an upset stomach right now without any other symptoms. Thank you in advance for any replies and please pardon the descriptive question.

Avatar f tn I had a bad case of either food poisoning/stomach virus when i was 12 weeks. It was horrible, couldnt eat or drink anythink properly for 2 weeks without throwing it back up. I lost 10-15 lbs at that time. Theres really nothing you can do but to let it pass out your system. Sip on water or gatorade to keep hydrated, but dont down it because it may come back up. Munch on very light foods like crackers, plain toast, rice, or clear soups. Good luck and it will pass!
Avatar m tn Hi, From the information shared by you it is possible that you are suffering from gastritis. Other causes of your symptoms could be food poisoning, food intolerance, stomach flu etc. Try to take regular fresh well balanced meals. Ensure to snack on plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and include natural yogurt in your diet schedule. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Keep me posted. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn Flu or food poisoning maybe.
Avatar n tn It could very well be the stomach flu Other causes could be: Food: such as you ate too much, Getting checked for lactose intolerance may be a good idea, Something that just normally upsets you e.g. Spicy foods, Eating a food that's been around for a while and went bad. Appendicitis Stress Tips to help you try and prevent this in the future: Don't overeat, Eat a good amount of fruits and vegetables, Wash hands before eating, Don't eat right before bedtime, Get lots of sleep.
Avatar f tn I agree about checking for carbon monoxide - carbon monoxide poisoning can mimic a flu or virus, causing headaches and nausea/vomiting. If you're not having trouble with carbon monoxide, it's possible you've either both picked up a stomach virus or perhaps even food poisoning. The only thing a little "different" about it is that you feel worse if you don't eat - that usually is more typical of something like an ulcer than a virus.
Avatar n tn This week, I had a tooth extracted, and a couple of days afterwards I came down with fever, cough and other flu symptoms. I feel miserable and I've been driving myself crazy worrying it could be some sort of systemic infection related to the tooth, although both my dentist and my GP were completely unconcerned. I've spent some three days taking my temperature every hour or so, and googling complications of dental extractions.
1019388 tn?1340851086 // What ever it is if it is not gone or gets worse within the next day or so go to the doctor and get checked. The reason I keep thinking it is something you ate is because I developed shellfish allergies and my symptoms were similar to yours. My husband also had food poisoning once and in both cases it was within 2-4 hours of eating. What is throwing me is the hr increase. In either case hope you are better soon.
Avatar n tn Go to the doctor I don't know what the symptoms are, but when I hear this started after a chicken sandwich I think about salmonella. In general, salmonella symptoms begin with nausea and vomiting and progress to abdominal pains and diarrhea. Additional signs and symptoms include fever, chills and muscle pains, and can last anywhere from several days to two weeks.
Avatar n tn Have any of you ladies gotten food poisoning while pregnant what where your symptoms? How long did they last did you take anything?
