I hope someone can help me! On Wednesday around 2pm I ate sushi. At 5pm, within 5 minutes, I developed a high fever with aches and chills. Wednesday night I began getting severe, sharp, stomach pain, followed by diarrhea. I've had a constant fever (which has finally subsided today) and the cramping and need to run to the bathroom is occuring every hour at least, since Wed night, day or night. Since then, I've also not been able to eat much. I've been drinking tons of water and Gatorade, but I think it goes right through me, because ten minutes later I get more severe cramps and have to go. When I go, there's no blood. It's green-ish (which I read is bile because i'm not eating enough), and oderless. The stomach pains have become unbearable! Is this normal? I also have not vomited during this illness. I've been in bed for the past three days and am desperate. Are these symptoms of food poisoning?

Thank you for any advice.

  • You need to see a doctor ASAP! Urgent care at the very least, if not the ER. Anytime you have acute, severe stomach pain, it requires immediate medical attention. You may also be severely dehydrated. Not trying to scare you, but either of those could be life-threatening. You don't want to play around with this.
