Chicken I ordered a chicken dish on Saturday night, ate the leftovers Sunday evening, and 7 hours later was hit with crippling food poisoning. It was the only food I have eaten out in a while. I had vomiting, diarrhea, dry heaving, chills, nausea, sweating, and a pounding headache for 18 hours. I've been unable to sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time, and have been left with aching joints: left knee, neck, lower back, and my hips. It is Tuesday and I only stopped throwing up last night. I am lethargic, weak, and my entire body hurts along with the typical residual abdomen pain and soreness.
