Food poisoning? I got severe stomach pain and diarreah out of nowhere, every time I eat I get sick farted bloody mucus as well

Not likely: "Food poisoning' is usually an acute and intense period of vomiting and diarrhea, usually in some association with a meal, perhaps 2-3 hrs later. Lasts 6-24 hrs in most cases. The bloody mucus is a bit concerning. So I suggest you speak to a doctor or provider soon. Try to drink lots of fluids, eat small frequent meals/snacks, and be prepared to discuss this with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Was diagnosed yesterday with food poisioning. Constant abdominal pain and abit of diarrhoea still persistant. With slight feverish. What shall I do?

Food poisoning: Food poisoning can come from many different organisms, and can present in many different ways. For now, I would be sure to drink a lot of fluids, especially while you're having diarrhea. If your pain is worsening, fevers seem to be getting worse, rectal bleeding occurs, or anything new develops, I would go back to the emergencyroom immediately. Most likely, you will gradually improve. Good luck. ...Read more

Symptoms overlap: Some times it is hard to tell. I generally assume that a fever over 101 in an infant or 100 in an adult likely represents an infectious process rather than a food toxin.

How often would expat get the stomach flu as opposed to food poisoning in china?

No idea: I do not imagine the actual frequency of "food poisoning" in china is known, but the term is so vague that it could refer to any of several dozen conditions.

My guess is that this would be far more common than illnesses transmitted through food, but have no data to support that opinion. ...Read more
