hi everyone
i have been suffering from a number of symptoms for about a month now first thing was diahorea that smelt wrong somehow(not that it ever smells right but you know what i mean lol)which lasted about two weeks but now i have a constant dull ache and sporadic severe pains in my upper abdomin around the heart area which is usually helped by belching what i cant get my head round i never felt really ill immediatly after eating one particular thing? but it did start when me and my partner where away in my newly aquired motorhome we ate a few things out a non functioning fridge(some mushrooms and some pork based kebabs)which we cooked and we also drank the water out the onboard tank which had a strange chemical taste? she hasnt been well either for the same amount of time but her symptoms are different she hasnt got the indigestion but she needs to go to the toilet after every meal and her lymph node on one side of her neck swells as she is eating within a minute or two? it just doesnt make any sense to me at all is it possible we have damaged ourselves somehow thru poisoning:confused:

  • I recommend loads of probiotics ASAP. If it doesn't help, see a doctor.

  • You could have any number of things - salmonella, giardia, e coli, worms, etc....what possessed you to do something so stupid (eat food from a non-functioning fridge and drink unsanitary water)you need to go to the doctor asap to get a nice big round of blood tests to test for the above and then get treated.

  • We all do stupid things Amanda -its part of our humanity. Probably amoebic or bacterial. Could try some fresh garlic (pulverized) 3x day with some oil of oregano (enteric coated) while you wait to see the doc.

  • thanks for the advice everyone the symptoms are subsiding but still there i have been controlling the pain with antacids(zantac) for a week now and if it comes back il take time off and go to the doctors il also try everyones suggestions my partner has been refered to a specialist so that should shed some light although her stool sample results all came back normal? the weekend we went away was our first trip away so the fridge not workin was a suprise to us and we did use some judgement the food was only a day old and the water tank was flushed several times and refilled with tap water before the trip so should to the best of my knowledge been free of bacteria definatly thought it was worth mentioning even so like i said it had a strange chemical taste? thanks again il post what happens in case anyones curious :)
