Stomach Flu & Food Poisoning

Stomach flu is a nonspecific term that includes food poisoning when the source is contaminated food. It is commonly caused by norovirus which is very contagious and spreads quickly. Stomach flu symptoms range in severity and occur within hours of eating. They include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.

7/25/23 Ate here to celebrate a birthday. Food was great, had smoked chicken pesto cream ravioli and two family members had the roasted garlic and gorgonzola ravioli. We each then had a slice of lemon cheesecake. After eating we all felt full but my husband and I … See More
started feeling weird. About 2-3 hours later we started getting nauseous and started experiencing bubbly gut and cramping. My husband immediately had to use the bathroom and had diarrhea as well as I. The following day our symptoms worsened to the point we thought we had a stomach flu. I went to the doctor today, 07/27/23 and was told it was food poisoning caused by someone who didn't wash their hands or had fecal matter on their hands and prepared our food. I will have missed 2 1/2 days of work due to this. Our symptoms: diarrhea, nausea, cramping, cold hot sweats, headaches, body aches, fatigue, and loss of appetite.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Headache, Fatigue, Loss of Appetite, Body Ache, Cramps

I ate tomato soup on Tuesday Nov 22 and within hours started to have severe stomach flu symptoms (I assumed I had the stomach flu and not a food borne illness) but had diarrhea, nausea, aches and stomach pain that lasted for 5 days. I ate tomato … See More
soup from the same restaurant on December 13 (3 days ago). I spilled half of my soup and only ate half of what was remaining but that afternoon I developed stomach cramps and diarrhea. It has lasted several days. Not as severe but are a smaller amount. I am not obviously 100% this made me sick but it’s highly suspicious given the 2nd incident 1 month later with same exact food and developed similar symptoms after eating a smaller amount of the food.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Cramps, Stomach Pain

On Thursday, August 11, I went to the location. I ordered an “impossible” whopper because I’m dieting and wanted to try it. The drive thru woman forgot my order, told me to go to the front and wait. Waited outside for 15 minutes…. For a FAST FOOD … See More
“vegan” burger. Well I had to walk inside and ask for my meal, upon discovering they were rushing since they forgot about me. Ever since, I have been feeling SEVERE: -Nausea -Projectile vomiting -Diarrhea -Stomach cramps -Hot flash/Cold flash -Chills -Headache -No appetite -Dehydration UPDATE: Not only are these symptoms SEVERE, like the worst pains of my life, but I just vomited my only food up. Because I feel like DEATH for the last 24 hours, and the symptoms only getting worse, I will be visiting an urgent care by morning. I chatted with my doctor and it was confirmed that I have stomach flu/food poisoning based on symptoms alone. After further research, you can also see that they uses 21 chemicals in their meat. It’s public information, and very disturbing to find this out. DO NOT EAT AT HERE. I threw my receipt in the trash once I got home, because that’s what I always do with fast food. I’ve never had a severe poisoning before like this one, and I don’t plan on it again. Dumping fast food completely after this. Not worth it.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps, Dehydration, Chills, Loss of Appetite
