Food poisoning has aggravated my GERD and hiatus hernia

Posted , 3 users are following.

2 days ago I ate seafood at a local restaurant and got sick that night. Ended up at the ER and now all the other symptoms I managed to somehow control are back ... My tummy won't stop rumbling, diarrhea and stomach cramps.

How long until I get better???

    Everyone recovers at different rates. Give it a week and stick to bland foods, nothing rich, spicy or fatty and take Imodium and painkillers for your stomach pain. Try milk which is gentle on your stomach. Have you had any vomiting? If no better after a week see your doctor.

      And now the diarrhea has stopped but I m constipated and can't pass gas. I m so worried something is wrong.

    I think you need to make a Drs. appointment just to make sure your bowels are OK.
