Food poisoning going around?

johnboy 19 December 2011 30

Here in the Eagle’s nest there are a lot of haggard faces as we recover from food poisoning contracted on Friday night (food eaten at different places).

Is it just a coincidence or have you too been getting re-acquainted with the smallest room in the house?

I got cold chicken from Tuggers Nandos. Bad call Nandos.

I’ll bet it wasn’t cold after it was “processed”

I suffered this last Friday night after eating the chicken in mushroom sauce at a friends dinner party. I was like Mt Vesuvius. However after being strapped to the dunny for three days my old jeans now fit , so it was worth it … maybe.

Jenny, I’m sure you’re a beautiful woman, and a lovely peaceful soul, but there are some images that should be kept forever in the mental closet. Vesuvius like eruptions as you are strapped to the loo are just….I dunno…I think I’m gonna have to go to a different thread…:-)

Nothing was spared from its wrath , not even the walls.

Oh Jesus…I knew I shouldn’t have come back here…I knew it…:-)

My 3 year old son has had an upset tummy since Thursday. He’s pale and irritable, but seems to be working through it by expelling copious amounts of foul smelling gas that only the devil himself could probably create. On a happier note for all, it has drawn toilet training to a successful close, finally. I’m very happy with that as an early Xmas present.

No other symptoms of food poisoning though. Belly still not 100% and backside as sore as anything. Doc couldn’t find anything overly wrong so said bad case of gastro.

There is an opening here for an old joke, but I shall resist temptation. 🙂

Food poisoning? Gastro?

Nope.

Slight mass hysteria?

Possibly.

Is hysteria brown?

Had something really nasty on Thursday evening/Friday. Went to the quack first thing on Friday morning who sent me to the emergency room at the hospital. One of the worst things I have ever had, gave me the urge to make a number 2 every 20 minutes or so, not good when there is nothing left inside to come out. No other symptoms of food poisoning though. Belly still not 100% and backside as sore as anything. Doc couldn’t find anything overly wrong so said bad case of gastro.

If you eat food contaminated with staph toxin, you can get nausea and vomiting in about one hour. You don’t get ‘gastro’ per se, just really unwell, really fast.

So many people blame food – without any knowledge of food epidemiology – it is oftentimes community acquired. Common gastro is usually not from food, but passed through the air by carriers. Food poisoning has many different symptoms depending on the pathogen that caused the poisoning. It takes at least – I want to repeat this – at least six hours to take effect, but can take up to 6 weeks. Therefore it is seldom if ever the last meal that you ate that made you sick.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence, the Christmas silly season is definitely here in full force and people just aren’t on the ball. Yesterday, my coffee from a usual place was awful, very rare for them to make sub par coffee much less totally bad coffee. Today, my sub was incinerated, the chicken having all the tenderness of kevlar.

At both places, the staff were noticeably… laid back shall we say. Indeed at the coffee shop, two of the staff were doing a piggy back ride, not really professional during business hours.

A mix of people not thinking straight and the higher than normal demand on staff on hospitality before Christmas is a dangerous combination.

Lots of viral gastro around at the mo. 10/22 of young Miss Pott’s class were away with it 10 days ago, and it has marched through the rest of the Potts family since then; at home today. As noted above, though, it does wonders for the Xmas weight control.

And I’m not sure if food poisoning ‘goes around’…

It is marketed as a flatulence stopper because it does that too.

Why on earth would you want to stop flatulence?

You need to eat at some better places!

Food poisoning sucks. I would like to share a remedy that I have tested many times for when contracting gastro food poisoning. Activated Charcoal tablets from the chemist marketed as gas-eaze or some name like that. Wolf down some medical charcoal tablets and depending on the kind of food poisoning you may be better within a few short hours. The dosage is up to your discretion but I had a few after making sure it was safe on the net.

Activated medical charcoal is used by hospitals for standard poisoning. The charcoal absorbs the poison and a lot of other things too. That is why if you are on normal medication, if you take charcoal with it, it may absorb and negate the effects of your medication.

The idea is, all the poisonous crap in your stomach that your body is desperately trying to expel, may be absorbed by the charcoal, including perhaps some toxins from bacteria. Give it a try, it worked for me when I got salmonella from Chicken in Sydney two years ago. Oh yeah it has to be the medical stuff you buy at the chemist for about 8 bucks a bottle. It is marketed as a flatulence stopper because it does that too.
