#1 Three Of Hearts

Posted 27 November 2012 - 02:50 PM

I felt a bit off yesterday morning, but nothing that a couple of panadol didn't fix.  It didn't stop me going about the rest of my day.  I didn't get a chance to eat anything all day so as I was leaving the shopping centre at 5pm I grabbed a crispy strip snack box and a shake from KFC (Not my usual snack of choice, I'm usually a sushi and water person).  The crispy strip was luke warm and not very crispy, but I didn't think anything of it as I was starving.

We ate tea around 8pm, it was all 'shop bought' stuff as I had had a busy day.  Marinated beef strips, tabbouleh, coleslaw (the chopped stuff, not the deli tubs) and a bit of cheese pull-apart.

Around 8:30pm I started to feel quite ill and by 10:15 I thought I was going to be sick so took myself to bed.  I had an extremely bad night, I felt very sick and spent half the night thinking I was going to throw up at any point.

This morning when I got up around 8-8:30 I was finally sick, and I brought up all my dinner from the night before.  Since then I've had a bit of a sleep and taken some more panadol, but am basically feeling like myself again.

So my question is do you think I had a quick bug, or got food poisoning from something?  DH ate dinner with me and has been fine so it would be the KFC if it was anything.  Or did my dinner just not agree with me perhaps?

The only reason I'm asking is because I have a business meeting tomorrow at lunchtime, and I'd hate to go to it if I had a bug I could pass on.

WDYT?

I don't think enough time had elapsed between eating the KFC/dinner and feeling sick for either of those to cause food poisoning. I think generally that it takes 12-24 hours for food poisoning to really hit. I think it would be more likely a bug or something you had eaten the day before considering you felt off in the morning.

Maybe a gastro type bug because you felt off during the day prior to eating the KFC....
