I think I have food poisoning.

For the last night I have had diarrhea to the point where all I poop is water(sorry for the TMI) and I can't even keep water down. I am miserable. Any suggestions?

  • Try the BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, and toast). If you start vomitting then Id go to the hosp bc you could get dehydrated.

  • drink lots and lots of water or Gatorade or something else with electrolytes. If you are pregnant go to the ER so they can check if the baby is ok (I just had food poisoning in October and am pregnant).

    That's really all you can do until it get's out of your system but definitely push fluids. Good luck!

  • I have had it so many times, so I really feel for you!! I used to drive truck OTR with my SO and man it was a never ending cycle for us. We are now VERY careful about food we eat AND never ever eat at a buffet. Take care of yourself and don't overwork yourself. You AND your baby need that!! GL!

  • This is me: luckily I'm not pregnant. I had my son six months ago so its hard taking care of a baby and not feeling like I can walk without puking. Thank goodness his daddy's work called off due to snow, otherwise, I don't know what I would have done. I just woke up and its a lot better so far AND kept down a cup of hot herbal tea my SO made for me. :-)
