Food Poisoning or Appendicitis ??

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi, just around 3 hours ago I started getting really uncomfortable stomach cramps that progressed until I began to poop a lot, and eventually I vomitted. After vomiting I felt somewhat better but then had very watery diarrhea. 

I haven’t pooped or vomitted in about a hour, but I still have some stomach pain, it isn’t as bad and it seems to be going away. It doesn’t feel like it’s on one side either, it feels like someone is squeezing my stomach. I took some pepto, but I’m extremely worried it could be appendicitis. 

I had a fish soup today that was frozen for a few weeks and reheated for dinner today, but my mom ate the same thing and she didn’t get sick. But I did have a strong coffee to drink just an hour before I started feeling bad. Coffee regularly makes me poop, but this coffee is stronger than normal. HOWEVER I had some of this coffee earlier in the day with only runny poop as the result.  I want to assume the fish soup and coffee didn’t interact well but I’m still scared.
