    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.

    MADE worse by the timing. Hope you're recovered soon.

    What a horrible experience and even more so on your birthday meal.

    I'm so sorry you had to go through that...I still vividly remember my bout this past winter with food poisoning.

    Sorry you had to go through that especially on your B'Day!
    I wonder how many other people became ill? I'd let the
    restaurant know as well as the local Dept. of Health who
    should be doing the inspections. I had a Dinner House for
    seven years and always got a 97 or so on inspections as
    cleanliness and food monitoring is just a matter of com-
    mon sense!! Public imput protects us all.

    Glad you are doing better!
