Ate approximately five slices of Pizza on October 14th between 330 p.m. and 7 p.m. Got the Pepperoni thin Crust and also a regular Crust Italian Sausage with onion.Started feeling queasy at 800 p.m. Ran to the bathroom at 830 p.m. and didnt leave for over an hour. Spouse drove me home and as soon as I entered the house I vomited like a little kid at a poorly run daycare. It was very bad. Woke up several times during the night as this continued. Could not even sip water. Had a fever with sweating and chills body ache head ache.Spent the entire next day in bed shivering and sweating taking small sips of water and eventually eating some Plain chicken. Three days later and I no longer have bathroom issues and fever but stomach is still not back to normal. I am certain the Pizza caused this because the only other food I had that day was the same Chicken that arrived fully cooked and that I also ate yesterday and the day before without issues. both my husband and me. sickness started approximately five hours after eating.

What To Do If You Have Food Poisioning


If you got food poisoning it's important to report it. You should drink fluids to prevent dehydration, and avoid solid foods until the vomiting has passed. If you experience severe belly pain, dehydration, high fever, bloody diarrhea, or prolonged or bloody vomiting, it is recommended to seek medical care.
