Ate dinner with family. Very good bread and pasta! I had a large glass of water, their Truffle Mac n Cheese with crispy prosciutto, and for dessert I had a cannoli and a spoonful of tiramisu. I was fine after heading home around 9 pm for the... See More most part. At first my discomfort felt like the standard indigestion I’d get after eating too much. The discomfort subsided not long after and my night went on as normal. Around 1:50 am was when I felt a mild discomfort in my gut, I chalked it up to gas and tried to continue on with my sleep. Around 2 the stomach pains increased exponentially. On a scale from 1 (least) to 10 (most), the pain went from 3 to 9. I began experiencing the horrors such as diarrhea and nausea. I felt like I was close to throwing up but luckily it hasn’t reached that point. As I’m writing this it is currently 2:46 AM and I have JUST recovered. Unsure if it’s over or if it’ll come back, but I really hope it doesn’t. TL DR: Ate a whole bowl of fancy Mac n Cheese and a cannoli and experienced the biggest toilet scare of my life. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Indigestion, Stomach Pain, Gas See Less

I can only be without a bathroom for approximately 20 minutes. And when you live 2 hours away, it makes for an interesting drive home. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

I had large bowl of pho, there was brisket meat in it that wasn’t in its normal state.
It was fluffy and loose compared to what it is normally. I was finishing up and saved it for last and noticed it had a weird game like taste... See More like in the verge of being bad but just didn’t think it would hurt me.

I ended within a few hours later from being in bed to the toilet all night with intense diarrhea and vomiting. I spent up all night puking up to the point it was all bile and acid. I gained a fever and it finally broke the next day but I’m extremely dehydrated and my throat and esophagus feels like it’s been burned (obviously) from the stomach acid. I kept going and started to throw up black mass and bits of blood red and black.

I’m feeling better today but that’s was the worst form of food poisoning I got ever from
