“Tuesday March 7th 2017. I was at work so I went to Subway to get a sandwich for lunch. I got a 6in. Chicken Teriyaki sub. Pepper Jack cheese, bacon toasted. Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles and chipotle southwest sauce. Went back to work and I took the first bite I noticed it had a sour bitter taste to it. At first I was thought it was the pickles because sometimes they can be sour. Took the second bite still sour biter taste by the third bite I smelled the chicken it had a very foul smell to it. That smell when chicken has gone bad. That's how it smelled. I threw the sandwich away after smelling how the chicken had a bad odor. Later that day I started to get some discomfort in my stomach. I began to get a stomach ache. After my shift I went home and drank some herbal tea to help my stomach ache. Wednesday March 8th 2017 I was off from work. My stomach ache came back full force. Severe stomach pain, stomach swelling, body chills, nausea, vomiting. I contacted my boss to tell him that wasn't going to be able to come into work the next day. I don't know how much herbal teas I drank and warm compresses on my stomach to help ease the pain. Thursday March 9th 2017 I went to the doctor. I told her all symptoms and told her what I had ate. She checked my stomach( it was still so swollen) After further examination she told me I was suffering from Food Poisoning and possibly Salmonella. Said for Food Poisoning I should have gone to the hospital. That this was a very serious problem that some people even die from this. I had no idea it was a more serious problem. I didn't know what was happening to me, because I never experienced this before. My doctor prescribed me some medication. RANITIDINE HCL 150 MG take twice daily. Went back to work on Friday March 10th 2017. Still very sore and stomach still very swollen. Saturday March 11th 2017 woke up at 1am with severe stomach pain again. Was thinking about calling off work again and just rushing to the hospital. After all I knew what the cause of it was. It subsided and I was able to go back to sleep. I went to work, I still had a swollen stomach and felt sore. Come Sunday March 12 2017 Finally stomach swelling came down. No more stomach ache. I was able to finally eat because with such severe stomach pain I couldn't eat anything. From Tuesday all the way till Saturday I felt very sick. All because I ate some bad chicken. God knows how long the chicken was sitting there or maybe it was expired and it had started to grow bacteria and I ate it that way. Crazy because I have always gone to that subway and this never happened before until that day. One thing I will tell you is that I will NEVER go back to any subway ever again.”
