Goodbye! and best wishes in your recovery

It's possible to get food poisoning from airline food served on a flight. Diarrhea and nausea are the most commonly reported symptoms of United Airlines food poisoning. In late 2017, Listeria was found at the facilities of a food manufacturer that caters to United Airlines.

Flight number 1172
San Jose, Costa Rica to Houston Texas
Monday 16 January 2023
First Class
Had the United Airlines scrambled eggs, potatoes, croissant, fruit & yogurt breakfast. On my connecting flight I started feeling worn out, feverish, freezing, cold chills, restless and was squeezing... See More my rear end closed for dear life the entire 3 hour flight.
Upon exiting my connecting flight, I made a mad dash for the airport restroom and evacuated my bowels. Horrific & violent diarrhea that had a wretched odor. Stunk of food poisoning. Felt nauseous and weak so just sat there with my head against the airport bathroom stall till I had the strength to go to my uber, for what seemed like over 1 hour. The whole time I had a steady flow of liquid stool. Barely survived my uber ride home. Once home had crazy diarrhea and slept for 12+ hours straight. I feel a little better.
Similar symptoms have occurred from eating the United Airlines Snack Box "Tapas" (stay AWAY from that!) & the United Airlines Hamburger. I've even had two attractive stewardesses tell me that United Airlines Hamburger wreaked havoc on their digestive system as well.
United Airlines, please take care of your customers. Im 1k and fly with you every week. I shouldn't have to be concerned about violent diarrhea every time I have a waffle cookie on a United flight. Thank you. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Something else, Fever, Chills

Seems more likely you were poisoned in Singapore than on the flight.
