Jl. Batu Belig, Kerobokan Kelod, Badung Regency, Bali, Indonesia

Report Type: Food Poisoning
Symptoms: Diarrhea Nausea Vomiting Other Fever Dehydration Chills Body Ache
“Ate breakfast at hotel and dinner at beach/pool bars. I'm not sure if I should mention them as I can't be certain where I caught the salmonella and don't want to blame a business if it wasn't them. It was in the Seminyak area.

I ate mi goreng / nachos... See More at popular beach/pool bars. I ate eggs Benedict at hotel for breakfast with apple juice on first morning.
On my last morning in Seminyak before heading to Kuala Lumpur, I woke up with body aches. Then went for breakfast with eggs, bacon, beans, toast etc again with apple juice. Not long until I was on the toilet with diarrhoea, bad headaches. I woke up with body aches so it could have been from breakfast 24 hours before or food at beach/pool bar.

In Kuala Lumpur I had fever and severe chills along with diarrhoea and headache again.

Returned to the UK on worst journey of my life, had diarrhoea, body aches, fever, cough, vomiting, high heart rate (BPM).

Went to A&E 3 occasions, then hospitalised for 4 days, severe dehydration, could hardly walk as legs and arms seized up, could hardly speak either. Severe abdominal and lower chest pains and diarrhoea did't stop for 10 days including bloody stools.
BPM over 100 at times. CRP count 188 then after 7 days of being ill it went higher than 200 which indicates bad infection. normal crp is 5-10 according to doctor.

I had to have intravenous fluids/vitamins, multiple antibiotics, blood samples, stool samples, urine samples, xrays, ct scans and covid-19 test (negative).

Inflammation in colon, stools finally came back positive with salmonella. Unsure of the strain. Diagnosed with Gastroenteritis. Month later my body still hasn't recovered properly. I lost a lot of weight and muscle mass and still very fatigued.

It was an awful experience that ruined the end of a holiday and I would hate for anybody else to go through it. I was seriously worried about my health and very lucky it didn't seriously infect my bloodstream.

What is Viral Gastroenteritis?

Gastroenteritis refers to an infection of the gut and is known as food poisoning when caused by food contaminated with virus(e.g.norovirus), bacteria(e.g salmonella), and parasites(e.g Giardia). Gastroenteritis symptoms range in severity and can start within hours of eating contaminated food.

What is viral gastroenteritis

Viral gastroenteritis affects the intestines and often manifests as watery diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea and, in some cases, fever. As its name suggests, the infection is caused by a virus. And while the term “stomach flu” is commonly used to refer to viral gastroenteritis, this is incorrect as the infection does not affect the stomach but the intestines. In most cases, symptoms of viral gastroenteritis are short-lived and self-resolving. Thus, infected persons rarely need medical treatment before they recover. Although not common, prolonged infection may lead to severe symptoms like dehydration. 

Prevalence of viral gastroenteritis

Gastroenteric viral infections occur frequently, with norovirus being the most commonly identified organism, infecting an average of 20 million people annually in the United States. Gastroenteric infections caused by other viruses are not common. While the infection is generally widespread in a population, symptoms might be more severe in older people, young children and immunocompromised individuals. 

Complications

Severe viral gastroenteritis might lead to dehydration, which occurs due to loss of fluids and electrolytes when you vomit or experience diarrhea. Lost electrolytes and fluids need to be replaced to restore your body’s normal activities. Infected persons need to consult their physician when symptoms of dehydration are suspected. Left unattended, dehydration may be fatally dangerous, resulting in organ damage, coma, shock, or death.
