  •  I had food poisoning once and it was pretty (6+ / 0-)

    awful - I threw up several times a minute at first, then after several hours it petered out.  I am told I was lucky it only lasted about 8 hours.  This happened right before they found that sprouts could carry salmonella...

    My heart goes out to anyone suffering like you describe.

    And thank you for educating us!

      2 whole weeks. I had uncontrollable diarrhea every hour and a half for ten days with salmonella. You probably had a very small dose of e-coli or some other thing that you fought off well from the way you describe it.

      The salmonella scares really scare me, as I can picture my grandchildren not surviving what I went through...

      •  everyone reacts differently ... (2+ / 0-)

        I was involved in the first famous case of salmonella poisoning (Jewel milk) in the 80's.  About 8 hours of extreme distress for me also....it petered out over a couple of days.

        A couple people did die though.

        •  Yikes! I grew up in the South, so I got some (0+ / 0-)

          Coca-cola and drank that until I stopped throwing up - they used to sell the syrup as an anti-nausea.
