I mean assuming you aren't so dehydrated you need a saline IV.

Got it from this hotel room SVC food. Manager asks me if he wants me to call the Dr and fill out an incident report or something.

Is there Medicine e that helps or do you just have to wait till you purge it out of your system?

For most minor cases no, but there are people who die from Salmonela (sp) who could be helped if they would have gone for help earlier.

I've had a handful of terrible bouts...got so dehydrated I could barely stand from the pain in my kidneys. A couple of litres of fluids and I was good as news...on 6-7 occasions.

If you want to sue, you should identify the organism involved and see if it can be matched to a sample of the offending food. I've had a few food cases...

Doc will be able to help with symptoms but the bacteria/virus will have to be killed off by your immune system ultimately.

Best cure for food poisoning shits is prune juice. Your body wants whatever is in there out and drinking prune juice forces the issue.

You far more likely picked up a norovirus than contacted food poisoning. The best thing you can do is stay hydrated and wait. If you are in otherwise good health,you should be OK. If you feel that you need an IV,go to the

Fuck yes it is for the phenergan suppositories alone. That stuff will stop the projectile vomiting and shits so you can keep fluid down.

How do you know it's food poisoning?

If you got sick shortly after eating, that meal isn't to blame.

IME, no.

This. IV fluids can bring you back to life in under an hour if your really dehydrated.

When I read this I thought: "How'd my grandmother get on ar15.com?"

She'd cure anything that was wrong with you with only two things:

Prune Juice

Vicks Vapo Rub

This. I made it five days with salmonella before throwing in the towel and headed to the ER. Ain't many people I would wish that shit on, but I can think of a few.

Your system clears bad food out pretty quickly, the problem occurs when it isn't bad food but something else.

A guy died here from a flesh eating bacteria he picked up eating oysters.

If you're keeping water down, you should be fine. If you can't, then you need a hospital trip.

They have some great drugs, a little expensive though. Probably get cheaper drugs off the street......J/K. If symptoms persist you could become dehydrated and possibly even die.

Not true. Rapid onset could be from S. aureus food poisoning.

In 1996 I was hospitalized with confirmed E coli. From the first symptoms to the ER was less than three hours. It took so much Phenergan to stop the shitting and puking that it burned a vein from my wrist to my elbow.

If you have "food poisoning" you will know.
