I kind of think that I might have gotten sick from the recalled eggs.  We do not keep our egg cartons and a few weeks ago I bought a different brand.  I got them from Albertsons and their eggs are on the list.  The symptoms range from cramps and nausea to vomiting, diarrhea and fever.  I do have IBS, but it has never been this bad.  It is like I have taken colonoscopy prep.  It is pretty awful.  yuck.

Hi sue, sorry you are sick, hopefully you are throwing out the rest of the eggs. You should probably get checked out by a dr. too. Hope you feel better soon.

(((( Sue ))))

Oh you poor thing. Having been through utter heck this last month with stomach issues - I sincerely sympathize. I think Shirley is right, do get checked out by your doc. Salmonella is a very unpleasant thing to deal with. They can do something to help you. I think they take a stool sample for identification.

REALLY hope you feel better soon.

EDIT: Robin in so right about staying hydrated. I dehyrdrated twice - it wasn't pretty. Gatorade (not the artificially sweetened one) mixed with water at room temp helps a lot. That's what my docs had me do. It will put back some of the potassium you are probably losing, too.

We had some of the recalled eggs. Fortunately, no one got sick. I got salmanella about 24 years ago so I only eat well-cooked eggs. I remember it very clearly because I couldn't take my birth control pills for a while afterwards and ended up with a daughter.

If you seem to be "exploding" about every 20 or 30 minutes, you probably have it. It is awful and can last for days. You should see a doc, they can take a culture. This helps track the infection.

It is a bad case of the stomach flu.  I got severely dehydrated and had to go get an iv of fluids.  I am still deficient, but not dangerously so.  Only sips of water and attempt to stop the diarrhea.  home now and going to rest.

I'm glad I saw your post Sue, as I haven't really been following the 'rotten egg' story.  I looked and ours are on the list.  I don't eat eggs (allergic)... the hubby does and he hasn't gotten sick but I tossed the rest of the carton out as I forgot where I bought them!

((( Sue )))

Went through similar last month. I am sooooo sorry you're in the middle of it. Hope you can get good rest and recover quickly.

Let us know how you are when you feel up to it.

Thank goodness my chickens are laying again but they are hiding most of them in the hay section of the barn. We are getting enough for us but no extra like usual.

Sorry about the stomach problems and hope it resolves soon

How many of you are like this: I fought going to the doctor. But in my defense, the advice nurse said to call 911 or have someone drive me to emergency or go to an appointment 3 hours later or stay home at eat toast and yogurt. Seriously? How could all of those options be viable? So I chose to try staying home and ended up going to the doctor appointment. I didn't even realize how sick I was until today when I read the papers the doctor gave me after the appointment. They gave me a liter of fluids via IV and the nurse said I was severely dehydrated evidenced by the fact that my veins were completely flat and collapsed. My heart rate was high and blood pressure was low.

Maybe my hesitation at going to the doctor comes from the multiple tries I have had to get them to pay attention to me and realize that something was wrong. I practically had to diagnose myself with fibromyalgia before my doctor would consider it. I had to fight for my blue parking placard. When I had the swine flu, I called the doctor twice for help and was berated (it was the advice nurse again).

I am glad I went and am feeling much better now. I am still a little weak and tired, but have eaten a little and my hydration is back up. I'd just like to figure out why I cannot trust myself. That must stop. I guess awareness of a problem is a step in the right direction. But I have made that step before and want to take another step toward believing and trusting myself. How does one do that?
Sue

ps: do people with fibro experience illness more severely or something?

Sue, I can really understand every word you wrote here.

First - yes, people with fibro DO experience illness more severely. I have that from the horse's mouth - my new rheumy told me that often his patients will catch the same illness as another person but it almost takes them down - and it takes much longer to recover. He told me it was not abnormal for me to have been so sick this last month after what may have been a viral thing. So yes, you're right.

One note - your presentation at the doctor - severely dehydrated after severe diarrhea (not vomiting, right?). The first time I went in they gave me 2 bags of fluids. The second time (2 weeks later) they gave me one bag. And yes, my veins were collapsed. My blood pressure dropped (I'm low anyway) and my heart was going mad. If it is the same thing somehow, be extra good to yourself even though you're feeling sort of better. For me, it was a long rough ride to get better. I wish you much speed!

And - yes, I am like you when it comes to going in. I had never EVER been in the ER for myself before this incident and was proud of that. I try not to go to the doctor because like you I've been treated badly many times in the past. One phone nurse was rude to me when I was so sick - another one nearly freaked out that I wasn't in the ER with my symptoms (her daughter has crohn's and she recognized my symptoms were dehydration.)

How does one believe in themselves? Gradually you build on it. I'm working danged hard every day to do just that. Take baby steps and re-wire your thinking about yourself. Catch any negative talk and reverse it. If I say, "I can't do that, I'm stupid" I stop myself and say, "Wait a minute. I can do a lot of things. I'm smart enough to figure things out. I've figured out loads of things before. I'm bright!" It helps a lot. Daily effort in small doses will get us there.

*hugs*

My new motto is when in doubt get checked out. lol
Now I have to learn to abide by it. I think we get so used to everything being the fibro and that when we go in they wont find anything that it is easy for us to put it off. I have done that many times but I am definitely trying to change my thinking now. I think we all need to rethink things and tell ourselves better to be safe than sorry.
