    Ate there Friday night and by Saturday I was extremely nauseated. Nausea worsened and by Sunday I had severe diarrhea and into Monday. Today (Tuesday) I am pretty badly dehydrated and nausea is still bad even with anti nausea medication. Went to the doctor and they did... See More an X-ray and it’s gastroenteritis. Nobody else is sick. I had a filet o fish and some fries. Everyone else ate fries but I’m the only one that ate a fish sandwich. Thankfully no vomiting but I’ve been miserable for 4 days and haven’t really been able to eat. Had to force myself to eat once due to my blood sugar dropping from not eating. Doc says it should be better within the next day or so. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Gas, Dehydration See Less
