The soup was in one of these plastic containers. Threw out the box before getting sick so I only remember that it said "creamy, 50% less salt."
My wife had the same soup, but she noticed little balls in the soup and only ate a few spoonfuls. I really liked it and I had mine and hers. It tasted good to me! We both had a half of a tuna salad sandwich with the soup. I had a nice bowl of Brown Cow yogurt right afterwards; I think she did also. That was Monday at around 8PM.

At 2:30 AM I woke up with a terrible stomach ache and a small headache. I was just a mess all morning until my wife got up. The headache got much worse. I was nauseous but did not throw up. I stayed home and was in and out of bed. I had only one small bowel movement.

My wife thought that some Coke would settle my stomach, so I had some. It did for a while. She got me some Pelligrina sparkling water also. I had some of each. Finally around 7PM Tuesday, it occurred to me that I should just throw up and get this stuff out of me. It was a big effort, but I managed to throw up every few hours or so after having some of each of the drinks. This went on all Tuesday night and all Wednesday during the day. It was agony. I almost wished I was dead. Stomach ache, head ache and nauseous all day again on Wednesday with the vomit episodes every few hours.

Wednesday around 7PM was my last vomiting episode. I still felt weak but my wife suggested some oatmeal which she made for me. It tasted good and I finished the bowl. I had not watch any TV or ready anything since Monday so Wednesday night I felt good enough to watch a few shows. But, I was not feeling terrific. Still a little nauseous. But, I went to sleep with so too much waking up only two or three times.

Thursday I feel better, but have some kind of acid reflux in my esophagus which I felt a little on Wednesday, also. I have a low case of diarrhea and am just a little nauseous. I feel very weak so I am not going to work today.

What could have happened with that soup? What additional treatment should I give myself? Thank you for your help. How can I AVOID that experience again?
