Anyone know much about Food Poisoning?

Forums - General Discussion - Anyone know much about Food Poisoning?

Sure going to the hospital is the right thing to do. But when things feel a little bit better, I tend to hesitate. I have not had any major stomach problems in the last 12 hours. Still feel a little sick, have not tested out the breathing problem yet.

I just slept for 4 hours and have been drinking a lot of watery drinks, and it seems slightly improved. Again I must remind everyone that I am a healthy adult, so even if I did get botulism it probably wouldn't kill me per say. If symptoms last I will probably call my mother today.

Edit: And it is definitely not pneuomonia! TBH I am starting to think I had a blood clot around my lungs, which was very dangerous. I am hoping it passed.

Go away from google, fuck sake.

You can't "start to think" you have a blood clot around your lungs, that isn't something you can really feel as being wrong with you like that.

If you ate shit food, you'll probably crap it out, if you really have not got $20 to your name then your status on your profile (checked to see where you live to see about ambulance costs) is pretty weak really, maybe spend some of that time streaming your game online and try to generate some funds that way?

Simple thing, if you are in need of a doctor, go to a doctor, if you have no means whatsoever to get healthcare either consider moving country to one with social security or else commit a crime and end up in jail, you might be in Jail but you'll get 3 meals a day and basic health care! (just don't do anything to someone else, do a crime like start to ddos your local governments website using tools downloaded from a thread on 4chan or something)



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

The difficulty breathing makes me think its not food poisoning.
I would seek medical help.



Oh boy, there are countless variations of food poisoning, so please just quit the self-diagnosis. In most cases, healthy people can wait out food poisoning just fine, but yeah, you never know. Also keep in mind that whatever you got might be contagious. So by not going to a doctor, you might put other people in danger, even if there is no one directly around you.

@bold what? I am a busy college student. And it is most certianly not as cheap as $20 lol, even if it was it would break my budget. The pork I ate was donated to me by a friend, and I am very grateful. It sucks that I made the mistake of not knowing how to cook. Would love to move countrys, in fact its my plan in the future with college. Anyways my family tells me jail is bad, so its not like I am going to follow in their footsteps.

I live isolated and alone, no way anyone could get it here. While going out to the hospital would expose many people. So its kind of reverse logic there...

Anyways, thanks all for your responses. I am glad the community cares. Good points brought up, that I will remember. Now I will probably go back to sleep :).

Can you call an ambulance? Or have you called the local poison control center? I'd call the poison control center immediately if I were you

Ambulance is too expensive for me right now even with healthcare. If it is as low as $20 fee, would be a huge impact. But I am sure it is more.

You have to pay for an ambulance in America? Jesus....

You didn't mention vomiting, if you're not throwing up I wouldn't be sure it is food poisoning...

Get well soon

I'm a doctor and all I can say confidently from the above information is that you aren't qualified to diagnose yourself.

Do yourself a favour and get checked out by an actual doctor. Google doesn't actually replaced 7 years of university education.



I had food poisoning from air port pizza once.

My advice, drink a bunch of Powerade or Gatorade. Just clean that shit out, I didn't even take medicine.

Aren't there doctors working for charity organizations that visit the poor and people with low income where you live? For example Medicaid centers, Caritas, Knights of Malta, doctors volunteering locally at personal level, etc...
