Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Other

My husband and I went for our honeymoon. Feb. 2019 and have been sick off and on since. I've seen several doctors, including a holistic doctor, and they can't figure out what is wrong with me. I did get extremely sick while staying at the resort and... See More continued for several weeks after returning home. My blood pressure was 220 once I got back to the states. I go weeks of feeling great, and then a month or two where I can't even get out of bed because I am exhausted. My skin is a mess, and my hair falls out in clumps, pale, brain fog are just a few of the symptoms I now live with. I am now getting a referral to Mayo Clinic. I am hoping for some answers! | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Other See Less


Diarrhea, Nausea, Cramps

Got sick after on the 6th day of my stay. Diarrhea and stomach cramps were the symptoms. Not sure what caused it, highly suspect the food was the cause. My wife and 2 children also experienced similar symptoms, with additional vomiting. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Cramps See Less

Our group ate at Bavaro buffet for supper Feb 8, 2020. Middle of the night 3 members were up violently ill; vomiting, diarrhea, fever/chills that carried into the next day. Took them about 2 days to recover. Suspect it was either the mussels or beef steak contaminated. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Fever, Chills See Less

Arrived Jan 30, 2020 with a group of 11 adults. Second day into trip we spent the day at the side pool. Few of us had a tequila shot and mojito. Simultaneously, 5 of us became very ill. Vomiting, could not stand up, passing out and blacking... See More out. We have no memory of the rest of the day. Only thing I remember is being dragged up the stairs to my hotel room by life guard and other staff member. Thankfully, the members of the group who did not get affected ensured we were cared for. When I woke up, I had hot/cold flashes and vomited bile for the next 10hrs. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Other, Chills, Bile See Less

I was in Punta Cana at a resort back in December with a friend. About 3 days into our trip I fell ill with a persistent headache, fever, diarrhea and severe stomach cramps. My friend was fine, but I went to the hospital. Unsure of what caused it. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Cramps, Headache See Less


Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting

In 2009, yes 10 years ago. I was at the Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro in Punta Cana and on my very first night, we ate at the Asian restaurant and about 1-2 hours later I woke up in excruciating pain, throwing up, diarrhea, fever and literally thought... See More I was dying. My boyfriend (now husband) had to call for help (called at least 3 times). They finally came and got me and brought me to their doctor. In order to be "seen" I had to pay him $500. Once he evaluated me, he said I should go to their local hospital, I refused so they gave me some medicine (anti-viral?) and two iv's. The rest of the vacation (3 more days) was a blur because I was so sick. I didn't eat/drink anything other than bottled water and bread. When i came home, I was admitted to the hospital for 5 days on iv antibiotics. My doctor said I had one of the worst strands of e-coli and my kidneys were failing. Luckily, I got help. I wish I reported this years ago but since these reports are coming out in the news I felt I had to post this somewhere that mattered so others could see how serious this issue is in the Dominican Republic. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting See Less


Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps, Body Ache

We can't confirm what made us ill weather it was the pool, the drinks or the food. However on day 4 we just sat down to dinner when I got a fever and sever pain in my back and stomach. We went back to our room and... See More that was me for the remainder of my 10 remaining days and for a further 7 days when I got home to the UK. My husband took it on day 8 and he also had it for around a week after we returned. Our friends who came from Canada for a week 1 took it on day 6 and his wife took it on day 8 the 1st day home. As with us and many many other travellers it came on with a fever severe back pain and stomach cramps. Hotel wasn't interested in helping and failed to get us a doctor. The pools were filthy and slimy and the buffet restaurant smelled of raw sewage. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps, Body Ache See Less

2017 - After 2 days on the resort I became extremely ill with diarrhea. Not the normal travelers diarrhea. I couldn't get out of the bed and stayed in the bed sleeping or going to the bathroom the rest of the week. I had to buy diapers... See More to fly home it was that bad. Once we got home I went to the ER and was told I had not only salmonella but also Ecoli. I was given antibiotics but after a week I was no better. I was given fluid 3 times during this week and was still severely dehydrated. I went to the ER again and was admitted to the hospital. I stayed a week due to the strain of salmonella not responding to antibiotics. Infectious disease was brought in to try and figure out how to cure it. I lost 15 lbs the 7 days I was in Punta Cana. We had visited Punta Cana 6 other times with no issues (at a different resort). The infectious disease doctor believes I contracted the illnesses from a cucumber that had a peel on it. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less
