I was in Cancun,Mexico for two weeks Jan.15-29/2011 and began getting severe migraines the last 3 days as well as dizziness. Headache has gone but I can barely walk from the dizziness!!!!! On the plane home I got very sick & threw up my plane meal & it started getting worse from there. Now I feel way more dizzy (ground moves), my body aches everywhere (like the flu), nausea, diarrhea (metallic smelling greenish), dry mouth, stuffed nose and a little lung congestion. I feel like total crap & just want to crawl into bed. I had my H1N1 shot & the flu shot months ago. Any of you have any idea or have experienced this so bad? I've travelled alot and had the odd bout of diarrhea but that's it...this is awful :( I'm kinda scared.

We came to the conclusion that we picked up a bad flu from tourists because I am better now. Someone who works for the airlines as well told us that since they banned smoking on airplanes they don't have a good air filtering system anymore so it constantly flows the existing air around and is filled with tons of pathogens!! During our stay in Cancun we did see people that were sick so it could have come from the hotel as well. If you aren't seeing signs of getting better in a few days though, go see a Doctor because while I was sick I googled my heart out and found so many parasites we can pick up travelling and they come with the same symptoms!! I know a friend of a friend got a parasite and was sick for a year and got down to bones ;God Bless!!!
