Ate a bad string cheese 2 days ago & have food poisoning. Worse today. Should I avoid hurling or let it happen and get whatever it is out? Hydrating.

Ate a bad string cheese 2 days ago & have food poisoning. Worse today. Should I avoid hurling or let it happen and get whatever it is out? Hydrating.

Just let it happen.: Just let whatever happens happens. You're not going to feel well for maybe a couple more days, but don't make yourself vomit as (a) it won't help and (b) you can give yourself a tear in your esophagus, which of course would not be good.

Fluids: Drink plenty of fluids to flush the system. If you do get food poisoning symptoms (usually within a few hours) homeopathic arsenicum is awesome for helping alleviate symptoms.

How long does it take to notice food poisoning symptoms from eating bad chicken?

How long does it take to notice food poisoning symptoms from eating bad chicken?

It varies...: ...anywhere from a few hours to 5 days, depending on the particular bacteria that might contaminate undercooked or spoiled chicken. But there's no point in doing anything before symptoms start. Just contact your doctor if you develop vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, or fever. Most food poisoning isn't very serious, so it's safe to sit tight and wait for symptoms.

I just had a bout of food poisoning and suffered bad migraine headaches, could those headaches be caused by the food poisoning?

I just had a bout of food poisoning and suffered bad migraine headaches, could those headaches be caused by the food poisoning?

Yes: Food poisoning can release a lot of toxins into the body. The mechanism is inflammation of the gut which can make the gut lining "leaky" allowing those toxins into the body. Gut health is the source of overall health - if your gut is inflammed so will be your body - rashes, joint pains, headaches, fibromyalgia, etc. Start a good probiotic like florajen 2 x daily to rebuild your healthy gut flora!

My boyfriend had bad case of food poisoning. He doesn't remember doing certain things like driving home or taking shower. Is that just from being sick?

My boyfriend had bad case of food poisoning. He doesn't remember doing certain things like driving home or taking shower. Is that just from being sick?

Not from food poison: These are not normal symptoms of food poisoning unless he is extremely sick. He would be in the hospital if he were that sick. He may have ingested something else in his food. I would follow up with his primary doctor if symptoms persist.

Can wasabi peas go bad and cause food poisoning? Ate some for first time ever, already were sitting in cupboard for while. Felt flu-ish next few days

Not food poisoning: Dried foods like wasabi peas are an unlikely cause of food poisoning, and "flu-ish" symptoms don't suggest it. The main symptoms of food poisoning are gastrointestinal -- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. And food poison symptoms generally clear up on their own within 1-2 days. Almost certainly your symptoms have nothing to do with the wasabi peas. See a doctor if they continue or become severe.

Have not pooped for 3 days now. Just had bad food poisoning the past day. Been vomiting a lot. Is there something wrong?

Have not pooped for 3 days now. Just had bad food poisoning the past day. Been vomiting a lot. Is there something wrong?

Likely: Vomiting and the constipation may be related, if you have intestinal obstruction. You may wish to try an enema to relive the constipation, if that does not help, it would be time to see your doctor.

Is flatulence of a bad odor a sign of bad digestive system or food poisoning?

Is flatulence of a bad odor a sign of bad digestive system or food poisoning?

Not necessarily: Bad odor in flatus can be a result of a variety of foods including fish, legumes but also may occur with poor digestion or food poisoning. If chronic, regardless of your diet, see a colorectal surgeon or GI doctor for an evaluation.

Bad gas: Flatuence (gas) can be a common symptom after a gastrointestinal infection. This can last several days after other symptoms resolve. If you need to try something to help relieve your symptoms, there are many gas relief medicines over the counter. Gas-x or beano are a couple.

My gf ate bad chinese food and has been throwing up for the past 30-45 minutes. Probably food poisoning. She is now resting w/ some pain. What can I do?

My gf ate bad chinese food and has been throwing up for the past 30-45 minutes. Probably food poisoning. She is now resting w/ some pain. What can I do?

UR probably right...: About the food poisoning, which should run its course if your girlfriend is otherwise a young healthy woman. However, if she can't keep down liquids, has unremitting vomiting, has fever, symptoms evolve and worsen, or she sees blood with vomitus or diarrhea she will need medical attention soon.

Sure, but I see...: ...that you have asked this question multiple times in the last 12 hours and I'm concerned. Pain is not to be ignored particularly if persistent. If you are in significant distress, please seek medical evaluation for the correct diagnosis and treatment. I wish you well.

See a doctor: Do not start yourself on antibiotics without seeing a professional and establishing a diagnosis. Antibiotics are not harmless.
