Does it get much worse: how much can we take???? I rarely eat out but, for my birthday, I went out and got some Thai takeaway. Ended up with food poisoning on Saturday night. Sooooooo bad, especially as I live alone. Fever, sweating, vomiting, gastric - the lot: I think I blacked out for a while too. Finally, had to get a doctor to come to the house and give me an injection to stop the vomiting- and he had to come back six hours later for a repeat injection. Feeling much better now, but still shakey and have had 1 cup of black sweet tea and 2 dry rice cakes in the last two days. Now I have all this stomach muscle pain from the retching to add the the fibro. But I think I lost a bit of weight. It will be along time before I eat out again.
