Okay, I am sick

I have food poisining. From what I suspect it was the smoked oysters I ate. They didnt taste right with my cheese and Triscuits, so I put them away. Without going in to detail, I am sick as a dog. Bob was ill with the tainted peanut butter( we had two jars) two years ago, and he s knowing what he is seeing with me. Anyone else go thru this horrific situation?

    I've never had food poisoning. You get over this fast, you hear? Can't have you sick.

    I have neer ever had food poision but I was in in East Germany and my friend has white asparagus with some of their sauce.  We had dinner and I did not see him until the next morning at the at the hotel when we were heading toward northern Germany at Rocksort?  He was deathly ill the entire way and we made many stops for him to recup.  I never ever want to be like that.
     
    We all saw the former MIG bases of the Soviets on the way. That was about 10 years ago

    Bless your heart dear.  I've had food poisoning and it is horrific.  Your body just has to dispel it accordingly.  Not pleasant.
     
    I know this sounds weird but keep ingesting water.  Add to that, finely chop a dill pickle if you have one handy.  Pick at it slowly.  Then, try sipping on some pickle juice.  The ph balances and sodium will start re-working your electrolyte levels.
     
    If you have a high alcohol content liquor, do a shot.  It will kill any "crap" inside your gastrointensanal tract.  I know this highly controversial in this day and age but it is good, old fashioned advice and it does work.
     
    Last but not least, I know banannas are not number one on the list; especially when nauseaous but they are the most helpful in easing symptoms.  The potassium and the nutrients subdue symptoms such as yours.  Works miracles.  Unpeal the bananna.  Let it ripen a bit to ambient room temperature.  You don't even need to eat the whole thing.  3 big bites will do the trick.
     
    Good luck my dear.  Hope you feel well soon.  Best Wishes.

    Tijuana with my family.
     
    Setup:
     
    Look!  A taco stand!
     
    Me...  I'll have some of the guacamole on mine.
     
    I was the only one that got sick.  I was the only one smart enough to ask for the guacamole that was sitting out in the hot sun for probably days.
     
    That was the first time.
     
    Second time while traveling across country in a Greyhound Bus.  I had seafood crepes in Boston.  I was sick through Buffalo and on to Niagara Falls... Canadian side.
     
    Next time...  I went to a Cuban Carniceria or however it's spelled.  In the back of my head I remembered my mother telling me that I'd die if I bought meat that was pre-marinated.  She was almost right.
     
    Last time.  I ate tainted mushrooms with delicious wine.
     
    I hope it never happens again!

    Folks, I do not know how to advise you but I suggest that you avoid water in un known  areas, mayo that ould have been setting out,  possible tartar sauce that is suspect and any thing that you might suspect with any salad.  I know that this is difficult but you have to be alert to any issues.

    Hope you feel better soon....The BRAT diet usually works for me------bananas, rice, applesauce and dry toast. I try to drink a lot of ginger ale and clear sodas too.

    Ann:
    When I was young,  I was allergic to many, many foods, so I did a fair amount of vomiting.  Once I had my stomach "washed out" with water, I found that peppermint would calm it.  In those days, my mother would give me some oil of peppermint, but now if my stomach is queasy, I suck on a peppermint hard candy or some peppermint TicTacs and it settles my stomach down pretty quickly.  You might like to give it a try.

    Last New Year's Night I had Gulf Oysters and was sick for three days.  I thought I was gonna have to die to feel better.  I wouldn't even attempt to eat or drink anything but ice water - and it didn't stay down.  I think it just has to run its course.  Come to think if it I haven't had an oyster since.

    We talked with Anne last night... Still feeling the effects.  I hope she kept the can from the bad oysters. I would recommend returning it with any complaints to the store where purchased...and notify the oyster company, if that info is on the can.
    Get better soon, Annie !

    I remember taking the Food Handlers Course, and I "believe" the number of REPORTED cases of food poison is less than 8%.  That number sticks out in my mind.  As mayor Al said, notify the oyster company AND their Health Department.

    And I sure hope you are feeling better by now.

    Well, its Wednesday, and while I am no longer my toilets best friend, my body feels like it fell over a cliff and hit every rock on the way down.Last night Bob got me chicken flavored noodle soup( just broth and noodles)and I managed to eat some.he had a fine smelling double cheeseburger with fried onions and pickles-but the thought of taking a taste had me reeling!Thanks for all the well wishes;this is as bad as it could be.
    I did save the can with the uneaten portions, and will be returning it to the store, and notifying the company( Roland) I can assure you-I will never eat smoked oysters of any kind again.

    Glad you're feeling better, Ann.  Does the can say what country the oysters were from?  Seems like the only smoked oysters I see these days are from China and I'm just not comfortable buying food products that're from there, and I'm not familiar with the Roland brand.

    When I was working the gourmet foods in the store, Reese was considered a top brand of smoked oysters and Roland was considered a "knock-off" brand, so it does not surprise me that the oysters that made you sick were Roland.

    Well, I have learned a lesson, athough this sort of thing seems so random. And in checking the can, they were made in China.

    Many years ago, had a shrimp-burger in Cape May, and hours later got dizzy spinning above our "throne."  To make matters worse, had promised my spouse we'd stop at AC.  She drove back up, and so glad my "out-bursts" ended, as I sat, slowly-feeding a quarter-slot, thinking I might die there, while she enjoyed herself in the multi-buck-zone, to prove that my love endured.

    Once a week on ABC's Knoxville News, they have a program that outlines all the health inspections of restaurants.  You would be surprised how many failed.  Three of the larger restaurants closed because of the report.  Viewers saw the report and never returned. I had been to them many times myself.  I never went back.

    Had a lovely, brief phone call from Greymo tonight. What a sweet lady-just checking up on me. Thanks, Kay!!
    Its Bobs b-day, so we were on our way for a gathering at his favorite steak place. I did okay eating, but brought most of my food home. Still a bit gun shy...
    Paul, the Journal Sentinel( our local newspaper) has the same type of reporting monthly on restaurant inspections and their failures( and successes) Very informative and certainly impacts my eating choices.

    Don,
     Glad to read you're feeling better. I get the feeling that there are a number of "Walking Wounded" in the RF family lately. Best wishes to all of the afflicted. I am really feeling better now myself and hope that all the rest of you are too.

    Cajun King,
    Neither will I, but because I don't like the food, not because of a specific 'bad' incident.

    It even happens at Roadfood places. In Jan 2010, we went with some family that was in from out of town to LC's Barbecue here in K.C. I had what I thought was the flu for a couple of days afterwards. Later in the week LC's got shut down by the health department. I didn't go there myself for personal reasons before that, and I now advise visitors to avoid them.

    Maybe forty years ago on Long Island, there was a local Australian themed restaurant we used to like, and one of their specialties was Carpetbagger Steak, stuffed with oysters. Sounded good, and I ordered and ate it. Within an hour or so, I got violently ill, dizzy, sweating profusely, nausea and diarrhea. I assumed it was food poisoning from bad oysters. Maybe five years later, I tried the same dish again and the exact same scenario ensued. I was done with the restaurant.
     
    Fast forward another twenty years, and I was with my boss at one of his Florida homes, and his sisters were shucking fresh oysters. Despite my history, I was talked into eating them because they knew where they were from and they were fresh as could be. An hour later, sweating profusely, and with the same accompanying symptoms, I was on my back for the night.  I was the only one that got sick.
     
    Feeling only slightly better the next day, I did go out on the ocean in a small fishing boat with my boss and fellow employee. Of course my stomach rebelled, but thankfully just bailed upward. Later that night we went to a popular local bar restaurant and there on the menu was a warning, including possible death, about eating raw oysters for people with compromised immune symptoms or liver damage.
     
    I'm convinced to NEVER knowingly eat an oyster again. I didn't even like them very much when I had them. I do love lobster, crab, scallops and like shrimp and clams as well as most fish, and I have no similar issues with any of them. My doctors have said my immune system and liver are fine.
     
    I did a little googling to see if I could find the menu warning I saw, but it's not on their current online menu. I did find this though, from someone's lawsuit with another restaurant... "The restaurant menu warned of the danger of eating raw oysters, especially for persons with “chronic illness of the liver,” but ****** ordered without reading the menu."
