    Today ordered at around 3:45 I have started vomiting 15 minutes ago., Feel like I am starting diarrhea soon.
    I ordered the #2 with just cheese. I scraped off the sauce. So some was left but most scraped off. I know it was this. I was fine.... See More I only ate a packaged new granola bar around 10am and nothing until this.

    Update: My stomach is a little weird this morning and I am using the bathroom a little bit for #2. Yesterday, I threw everything up for about an hour and was fine after it was out if my stomach. It was like my stomach wouldn’t even digest it. I went #2 once, after finishing throwing up. So, it didn’t give me complete diarrhea. It hit at just around 2 hours from eating the cheeseburger. No lettuce no tomato. It did have their sauce, but scraped it off so some residual was left. | Symptoms: Vomiting, Other
