    Last night at around 11.45pm I woke up with bad abdominal pain. Went to bathroom, had diahorrea, bit of vomiting, started sweating profusely, stood up and next thing I knew I was coming round on the floor, got up and must have passed out again. Got up again and made it to the bedroom, shaking like a leaf and still pouring sweat and passed out on the end of the bed. Come round and had a load of water and fell asleep. Very tired this morning but a little better. I was so scared, any ideas what could have happened?

    Only ate oats the last two days as I have been really stressed hence not much appetite, boss has put me on formal pip, since she found out I have depression she is working hard to get me out of the job. Anyway last night just had a small piece of salmon, freshly purchased.

    Exactly what happened to my hubby. Except he passed out 3 times and badly injured himself...

    Gadtro enteritis acvording to GP. Would feel better in a few day. Due to either a source of dirty water or people not wahing hands after toilet. Even tho hubby does, at work it only needs someone to use loo and not wash hands and touch handles and others will pick those germs up.

    It is awful and hits you so fast but it goes within a few days.

    Ah fish !!!

    Wondered if you had prawns or some other kind of seafood. But fish will do equally well if there's something not quite right about it.
