    I ate the Banquet Swedish Meatball meal for dinner last night and woke up at 5am feeling bloated and nauseous. Went back to sleep and woke up to sharp stomach cramps, belching, and still extremely nauseous. Can’t hardly move without the stomach cramps intensifying. | Symptoms: Nausea, Cramps, Bloating See Less

    Boneless Banquet meal  Bought a boneless banquet for one meal at around 8:30 pm, and approximately 1.5/2 hours later I had really bad stomach cramps, and then not long after diarrhoea and nausea. I suspect it was that as it is chicken and because the last thing... See More I ate was an egg Mayo sandwich from Tesco at 1 pm, a considerable while before the symptoms occurred.
