Do not buy the packaged salads from the deli department of the grocery store! You have zero idea on how sanitary the preparation was! I ate the salad and by the next day my stomach felt like it had a bowling ball inside! By that night the runs began and continued all night until I was empty. Along with shivers and headache it was horrible, and messy. Lesson learned: buy your own salad ingredients and wash them yourself!.

I had diarrhea the day before I got the terrible stomach pain and vomiting from food poisoning. I've never vomited more than once before. Usually I vomit and then feel better. This time I vomited 7 times over the span of 10 hours. The pain was crazy! Then I had leg and buttock cramps. I took ibuprofen and kept drinking as much water as I could. After two days of this I felt better, although I was still weak and my abdomen was sore from all the vomiting..
