monday I wake up with a headache, really bad. I go to work take a couple ibprofun which helps for a couple hours. In the meantime I get the chills really bad. I was freezing and couldn't stop shaking. I went home early. Tuesday (tmi warning) I started getting bad diarrhea and have had it until even now although not as often now. Wednesday I had went back to work after taking an excedrine for my head. But my bowels weren't cooperating and there was blood in it so I went to the er. They took some blood and stool and aCT OF my abdomen. After I got discharged I started vomiting and couldn't keep a sip of water down. The culture from the stool sample will be in tomorrow. I thought maybe I had a migraine and a weird flu at the same time...then I looked up salmonella poisoning and ALL the symptoms are the same. I still have all the symptoms. No more vomiting today though (thankfully). Has anyone gone through this?

yes. my symptoms were similar to yours...but i couldn't even make the decision to go to the ER. i was seriously just laying in the tub at one point, vomiting in a bucket. it was TERRIBLE. my husband had to carry me into the car-and i proceeded to vomit all over that. at one point, before he took me to the hospital, he put depends on me because my diarrhea was so bad and i was so sick i wasn't even able to get to the toilet. it was disgusting! i thought i was dying. i thought i had died and gone to hell. besides my terrible kidney infection a few months ago-it was the sickest i've ever been. 


i'm sure there are varying degrees of it, though. you could prbably still have it and not be quite as bad as i was.

There were times where I couldn't get out of bed. My friend from work came over and played with my daughter 5or awhile. She wanted to take me to urgent care our the er but I couldn't move at all. She came over last night too and helped me out. I'm feeling a little better today, still have stomach pains and diarrhea and a headache but I'm functional now..well to a point lol
