    Church had valentine dinner, Over half out with food poisoning, including me

    I been throwing up all day and diareea Not spell right. I could not get to bathroom in time and poop ran all the way to the toilet. What a mess to clean up. I cannot eat nothing, try drinking a little water and I got some pedilight . Nothing stays down.
    I been in and out of bed all day, Passed out on floor once. I am drinking bone broth now, but nothing else.
    Over half of the church is home sick.

    Never eat anything with any kind of cream sauce ever again. In fact stay the hell home.
    I really have not got out of bed, Dogs just don't get me, much less the cats. I am going back to bed now and stay there I hope. I got a bucket aside of the bed to throw up in. But really hope that is over with.

    Norovirus is making the rounds and hard right now, just saying. It only takes one person who is sick with it with improperly washed hands handling a serving spoon, etc., to make the entire bunch sicker than a dog.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Are you getting dehydrated? (Pull up a pinch of skin on your forearm -- if it doesn't go back down right away you are dehydrated -- in that case, better get to the hospital, even if you have to call an ambulance.) Keep drinking anything that you can keep down, even if it's just a sip at a time. So sorry you are sick.

    Be careful, older adults and the very young are especially vulnerable to rapid fluid loss. It can and does become a life and death issue even in the CONUS. Good that you have started on an ORS, but don't let up too early. One related resource is:http://rehydrate.org/solutions/homemade.htm.

    If you feel you are still going downhill, this is a legit ER visit or even a 911 situation.

    Yes, this! Please, don't ignore this... older folks just don't tolerate this sort of illness as well. Dehydration can easily cause heart rhythm problems, and go downhill quickly from there.

    The formula they use is simplistic and lacking in potassium and bicarbonate. Mine only needs salt, no-salt, (or the combined Lite salt), sugar, baking soda. Not all that difficult.

    So - two in the ER today and one who should be but isn’t. (At your age and in your current condition, this could easily kill you.) I suggest you get to the ER soonest.

    And yes, prayers.

    OAD if you have a can of peaches in heavy syrup, try taking a tablespoon about every 15 minutes and see if you can keep that down. Several people around here have tried it and it worked. I wish you could have someone take you to the ER. Praying for you sweet lady.

    SORRY TO HEAR THIS. I AGREE WITH THE ONES SAYING YOU SHOULD GO TO THE ER. PRAYERS FOR HEALING. AMEN

  19. #19
    OAD, PLEASE go get checked out at the emergency room. With the vomiting and diarrhea you can become dehydrated very quickly. Dehydration can lead to a whole bunch of not nice things happening to you. PLEASE go get checked out. You may not like going to doctors, you may not have the money, etc etc-don't worry about that. Hospitals cannot refuse service to anyone and you are sick. Do you have anyone close checking in on you? Have them run you to the emergency room.
    I'm praying you go to the ER and go quickly.

    Older than dirt, you could possibly have noro virus, you get it from unsanitary conditions. I avoid ALWAYS eating at buffets put on by churches/clubs, etc. You don't know the sanitary conditions people use to prepare their food, what their kitchen looks like, etc. I learned my lesson long ago because I always got sick at those functions - like not even making it to home and have it coming out both ends. Just sit and watch people at the table licking their fingers then going back for seconds and touching the serving spoons. That should cure anyone from eating at those functions. Other than that, I hope you get better. Stay hydrated and stay at home until you feel better. Noro is HIGHLY contagious!

    Norovirus outbreaks are common. This is because the virus spreads very easily and quickly from infected people to others, and through contaminated foods and surfaces. Outbreaks happen throughout the year, but they occur most often from November to April.

    Protect yourself and others from norovirus:

    Wash your hands often
    Rinse fruits and vegetables
    Cook shellfish thoroughly
    Stay home when sick and for two days after symptoms stop
    Avoid preparing food for others when sick and for two days after symptoms stop

    The most common symptoms are:

    Diarrhea
    Vomiting
    Nausea
    Stomach pain

    There is no specific medicine to treat people with norovirus illness.

    Antibiotic drugs will not help because they fight bacteria, not viruses. Learn more about antibiotics.
    If you have norovirus illness, you should drink plenty of liquids to replace fluid lost from vomiting and diarrhea. This will help prevent dehydration.

    Dehydration can lead to serious problems. Severe dehydration may require hospitalization for treatment with fluids given through your vein (intravenous or IV fluids).

    Watch for signs of dehydration in children who have norovirus illness. Children who are dehydrated may cry with few or no tears and be unusually sleepy or fussy.

    If you think you or someone you are caring for is severely dehydrated, call the doctor.

    Dehydration can affect your judgement as well.
    Best not wait to go to ER, if you just want to lay down & sleep... while getting up every 10 minutes.

    Please keep drinking even if it comes out, you have to stay hydrated. You poor thing.

    I never eat at church dinners anymore.

    Please be careful. You may need an ER visit and perhaps a day or two stay.

    My mom got something like this when she was taking a trip. She got herself to the ER and stayed in for about two days. She had been staying at a motel, but fortunately was staying in a town where she had previously lived and so she had some friends there. She was very sick for a few days but recovered.

    Again OAD, please be very careful. Call a friend to take you to the ER if needed or an ambulance. Dehydration is nothing to fool around with as we age, and you may need to have fluids intravenously if you cannot keep anything down. You know you are one of our favorite posters. so please take care of yourself.

    I agree. Go to ER. My daughter is much younger than both of us together and has had to go many times for dehydration and anti-throw up meds. It’s worth it to do now rather than waiting until you’re out of your mind because of it. If someone can take you that’s great. If not please call an ambulance. This can debilitate you enough they will throw you in the home. Worse you can die from it. Please?

    Praying for healing an please call someone to take you to urgent care.

    I am taking a Master Food Preserver class and Noro virus as well as listeria are common food born illness at communal eating get togethers. Let us know how you are doing when you are able. Can you call on someone to help you clean up the stool and vomit? A HOT soapy bleach solution is needed to kill the virus.

    Potluck used to be trustworthy when we were all playing off the same recipe books, real cocoa, real oatmeal. But the amount of lo fat, instant potatoes, fake butter flavoring, sugar free products out there are rampant and can make you incredibly sick. You want to end up crawling to the toilet in excrutiating pain, try sugar free gummy bears. Hideous.

    Any kind of hollandais or alfredo sauce is risky now. They hold crock pot cook offs for superbowl sunday for half time prize money for best chili, best meatballs at many bars and tailgates, using the pool table as the buffet. They used to be fun but people use cheap expired ground turkey on sale, fat free peanut butter as a thickeners, sugar free grape jelly for the meatball sauce, cheesefood macaroni and cheese.

    *shaking my head*

    Folks mean well, to protect heart meds and diabetic folks with low salt or low fat and often those synthetics are absolutely deadly. If you are cooking for loved ones and others, use the very best ingredients you can afford, real butter, real sour cream, real half and half for the coffee, real gelatin, real actual eggs not eggbeaters. If you are eating for holidays, you are going to gain weight anyway, so just use real sugar, real whipping cream and then diet after the new year.

    nothing lite, lo or 'tastes like real butter' garbage.

    A pancake breakfast fundraiser can literally send you into your bed for 3 days with those pre fabbed pre bagged scramble eggs, artificial sweetener "pancake syrup' that is brown food coloring, HFCS and no actual maple syrup in it at all, sunny d "orange drink" with not a drop of actual citrus in it.

    You cannot explain to elderly women cooking for church folk, they trust the grocery supply and what the teevee sells them as the latest fat free as safe and nutritious. Just because its advertised on tv does not mean it won't make you violently ill.

    Sunny D ingredients, has no business on any church or pre school table for children. Calcium enriched OJ will send gout sufferers into horrific pain too but Sunny D is little more than water, hfcs and crushed vitamin c tablets with canola oil. Less than 2 percent citrus concentrate.

    WATER, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP AND 2% OR LESS OF EACH OF THE FOLLOWING: CONCENTRATED JUICES (ORANGE, TANGERINE, APPLE, LIME, GRAPEFRUIT, PEAR), CITRIC ACID, ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), THIAMIN HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B1), NATURAL FLAVORS, MODIFIED CORNSTARCH, CANOLA OIL, SODIUM CITRATE, CELLULOSE GUM, SUCRALOSE.

    If you have food poison, a dose of the correct antibiotics will start curing you in just a few hours
    Dehydration will kill your kidneys so go to the ER ASAP
    After a day or 2 of nausea vomiting and diahrea you may even need an IV

    My acupuncture doctor would prefer diahrea as that is the natural way to eject toxins
    Binding the poisons inside for covenience isn’t as healthy

    I hope you are feeling better soon. It's nice to see how many on the board are worried about you. I doubt this is not your first rodeo, but, if your situation doesn't improve quickly please consider a trip to the ER? or at least a call to your doctor? If you're not getting noticeably better please don't put it off.

    Don't know if it will help but for diarrhea we use the BRAT diet; bananas, rice, apple sauce and toast(dry).

    I hardly ever post when people have problems. But each one of these people care about you OAD.
    It has been over 12 hours since you have posted. With a night to possibly get a minute or two of sleep. If you are still having any issues, go now to ER. If better, drink pedilite all day long and rest. Hoping for the best.

    Adding our prayers for you, too! Definitely get to the ER/clinic/MD for a check and likely rehydration. In two separate instances, DH had food poisoning (proven by Health Dept visit), and DD and I had norovirus. Symptoms are almost the same, and none of us had rehydration at the time, we just toughed it out. We were much younger then, and even still took weeks to get our strength back.

    It is very, very difficult to get rehydrated from this on your own, especially at our age now. A few yrs ago I wound up in the ER from severe dehydration (heat and stomach issues) and was rehydrated there, and bounced back pretty quickly all things considered. DD just was at an emergency clinic for a severe respiratory infection and needed rehydration. Professional rehydration does a huge amount in helping you feel better quickly.

    Prayers for you that you recover quickly!

    If you still can't keep anything in it's time to get to the hospital. Once they get you hooked up to an i.v. with some saline you'll feel a thousand times better. It's nothing to fool around with!
