Hi everyone. On friday, I've felt cold the whole day and had the chills, but I ignored it and went out at night to a bar with friends. Afterwards, we went to McDonalds. During the whole night sleeping, I was shaking cold even though it was warm in my bedroom. I only had a few beers (hardly enough for a hangover) so I attributed it to some kind of food poisoning. During the next day (yesterday), I slept most of the time, with mild hallucinations, and a small fever (100 degrees). I vomited that morning all that I had in my stomach. Just getting out of bed every time took 30 minutes due to hallucinating and no energy. I also had diahhrea yesterday morning. Later on yesterday I started to have chest pains in the center upper ribs/heart area - a big spurt every minute or two (which continues to today). My diet yesterday consisted of a lot of water, a little bread, a granola bar, some tea, and chicken soup at night. It was very hard to eat. This morning I awoke with my head feeling better and no hallucinations, but I still feel queasy, and I'm still getting the same type of chest pains. I also awoke with my right eyelid swollen/lazy eye. I think I slept on it for too long, but it's been like this for 8 hours already. These chest pains have me really worried and wondering if it's something else.

If related, I also have a diaphragmatic/hiatal hernia that I found out about last year that I need to check/ get a CAT scan of.
