In 2007, my son, husband & mother visited Punta Cana. The day after we arrived, I woke up vomiting & hallucinating horribly. My hallucinations were unbelievable. I was eventually taken by bus to Santa Domingo for an MRI. My mother was told I had a massive Brain... Bleed and two strokes.
I was also told I coded twice while en route on a medical plane flying me back home to Dallas.
I had to have a shunt placed in my skull to drain the blood out of my body.
My son, 7 at the time, thought I was dead.
I was in a medically induced coma for 3 weeks.
I began receiving symptoms right after I drank some tepid Koolaid as soon as I stepped off the plane at Punta Cana.
My brain surgeon told me, after I saw him for my first check-up, that I was lucky to be alive. That is when he told me I coded on the Medivac plane back to Dallas.
I believe I was poisoned. My vomit, the color of having blood in your stomach, was constant and I had no warning when I needed to throw up.
The resort told my husband not to talk to the papers, or the media, regarding my medical condition. Especially where I was when I started having these symptoms.
This resort would receive negative stars if I could give them.
Their CAT scan machine was ’not working’ & I had to be bussed to Santa Domingo for a CAT scan.
Because of this experience, I shall NEVER go out of this country again.
They, whomever They are, need to be persecuted. I was poisoned, according to the tox screen after I was throwing up constantly. I had no warning before I vomited
This incident happened in 2007 and these resorts NEED TO BE SHUT down.
An employee of the resort insisted on following us everywhere we went. To dinner, lunch, everywhere we went. Before my incident.

These illnesses in the Dominican republic are not something new. In 2010, my girlfriend and I flew for a vacation. I was very careful with the foods I eat and what I drink. Despite my best effort’s, I became very sick with diarrhea, severe cramps, and vomiting... for three days. My girlfriend and I really thought I was going to die. Once I started to recover, I was very weak. My illness wrecked our entire vacation. I would never go back there again. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Nausea, Vomiting, Cramps, Weakness
After reading all of the articles posted pertaining to the Domincan Republic illnesses, I feel compelled to speak out. Several weeks ago, I was in Punta Cana on a bachelorette party with a group of 17. We stayed in a private villa ran by a corporation. Unfortunately,... the trip took a turn when three of us came down with a horrific case of what we at the time chalked up to be food poisoning. The classic symptoms were present and we found ourselves sweating, vomiting and with extreme cases of diarrhea. The strange factor was that all 17 of us had eaten the same food but only 3 of us contracted the illness. We were essentially bed ridden for the remainder of the trip and sick after returning home as well. After reviewing all of the articles, I am no longer certain that we had food poisoning. It seems as if we had all of the same symptoms as those who became ill from the organophosphates. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting, Sweating

My husband fell suddenly ill while we were vacationing in Punta Cana in April. He had terrible diarrhea and vomiting. He was extremely weak and cold. This went on for 24 hours.
