Food poisoning: 5 days is usually a safe period to keep cooked meat in the fridge but if it was contaminated after cooking then it might make you sick 5 days later after bacteria have had a chance to grow. Food poisoning generally goes away in a day or 2. If not, or if having worrisome symptoms, seek medical care. ...Read more

May be: Prostaglandins are released with the breakdown of the uterine lining and can cause cramping, fever, headaches, nausea and vomiting, and diarrhea and this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. While this is not abnormal it also isn't good. See your PCP or GYN for treatment and to be sure nothing else is going on. Hope this helps and you feel better fast. ...Read more
