On Saturday, January 6, I ordered an order for Pollo Loco on the uber app. Once the item arrived, I started having dinner with my girlfriend. The only thing she didn't eat were the sauces, since she doesn't eat spicy. After an hour I started to feel... See More strange, yet I didn't pay attention to it. Another hour later at 11 p.m., I was exorbitant with a lot of nausea. I hate vomiting and I haven't had a lot of time, so I figured I wouldn't vomit, that I could control it. However, this was not the case, I started vomiting from 1 a.m., I continued like this until 9 a.m., although with a fever. I went to the doctor and he told me that it was food poisoning, within the scheme the difference is made in that tasty, but dangerous sauce of the crazy chicken. It's currently 1 p.m., and I've just stopped vomiting. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting, Fever See Less

I eat only one meal a day and last night that was a Pollo Bowl. It tasted off but I thought it was maybe new seasonings. Today at 3am I woke up to a horrible case of diarrhea. By 4:30 a headache came. I felt cold, clamy... See More and dehydrated with no fever. A little after 8am, I got up and moving around. This triggered an epic bout of vomiting. This lasted for about 10 minutes. The diarrhea continued until after 8:30am. It's currently 8:50 and I don't think these symptoms are completely gone. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Headache, Dehydration See Less
