“We arrived at Vikings at around 18:45 last July 28 and left at around 22:00. Everything was fine until my Dad had episodes of diarrhea morning of July 30. I gave my father one capsule of Imodium to stop his diarrhea after he finished his lunch. Then, I just finished my dinner that same day at around 20:30 when I suddenly felt a severe abdominal pain. I thought it was just Gastritis that I usually experience when I ate too fast just like what I did that night. I slept that night despite of my abdominal pain but I woke up at around 01:30 on July 31 because of severe abdominal cramps. I still thought that it was just Gastritis or indigestion. I took 1 tablet of Nexium then I forced myself to poop thrice hoping that it will relieve the pain. I was in so much pain for the next 4 hours that I was already feeling cold, nauseous and feverish. I called my Mom who was in the next room to hand me a glass of water and a hot pack that I can put over my tummy. I took 1 tablet of Buscopan because the pain is already unbearable. I also asked my Mom to massage my back because the pain is radiating to my back already. I somehow managed to sleep again when the pain was a bit lessened. I woke up after 2 hours at around 08:00 and the moment I sat on the bed I vomited right away. I felt relieved after that. I was just sleeping the whole day and I don’t have an appetite to eat because I’m still having abdominal cramps and I started to have loose bowel motion. I was already starving by dinner time so I forced myself to eat 3 pieces of crackers with 1 glass of ORS. At that time, I found out that my sister also started to have diarrhea that morning. It was then that we realized that we’re suffering from food poisoning and the only common food that only the 3 of us ate is the oysters from Vikings Buffet. When we looked up in the Google it says that food poisoning from oyster can occur 4-48 hours after consumption and it was the exact time when we started to have the symptoms. Since it also says that taking anti diarrheal and antacid drugs can make it worse, I stoppped taking any medicines. It’s now August 1. My Dad and sister are already getting better but I still have abdominal cramps and diarrhea so I’m already planning to visit the ER today.”
