Diagnosis: Parasite

Our trip was July, 2018. I was so incredibly ill, I spent the last 2 1/2 days of our trip in the room. I couldn't even eat bread or drink a sip of water. Got home, and went straight to the ER from the airport. They said... See More it was food poisoning, and gave me some meds and sent me home. A few days later, I was having very intense abdominal attacks. Went back to the hospital. The admitted me and did abdominal surgery to cut the parasite out of my small intestine.Then they noticed a lot of fluid in my chest cavity. Turned out, that my lungs were leaking and I was building up fluid in my chest cavity. Then I read how people were dying from respiratory failure from this. All totaled, I underwent a total of 5 surgeries and spent 52 days in the hospital.2 abdominal surgeries, and 3 surgeries on my lungs. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting See Less

After arriving in resort and feeling unwell after 3 days I sort advice from the hotel doctor who treated me for a stomach bug using IV drip & antibiotics and was told it would be better in 24 hours.

We stayed at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana from April 15-April 22, 2019 for a wedding. The whole party was sick with various symptoms. The symptoms were headache, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps. One person even got a parasite. My brother got so severely ill the last... See More night we were there with severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, fever. He almost passed out numerous times. For a moment there he thought he was not going to make it. On the plane ride home, he almost passed out twice from his symptoms. After that I was severely sick with the same exact thing and it lasted for days. We at first chalked it up to norovirus or food poisoning, but now we are not sure because the symptoms are like numerous other visitors. We feel very lucky to have made it out of there. The computer system went out for days and management did nothing to help with anything. We are glad to be home and safe. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps, Headache See Less

I had been craving sushi, so my father got me a salmon sashimi/roll carry out from Sushi Ichiban - not my regular place, but he thought he would give them a try. I felt crampy that night, and the following day interesting trip to the bathroom.... See More To make a long story short, I had to take off work to see the doctor, and ended up with a script to get rid of the worms that I apparently picked up from the salmon. Gross! | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps See Less
