Question: Food poisoning or bad stomach problems?....

 relax - Tue Mar 29, 2005 7:14 pm

WEll about 3 to 4 days ago i went to eat at this restaurant didnt look very high class to me. I decided to have fish that night and i really ate all of it with some mash potatoes the fish seemed rather good. About 2 to 1 in a half hours later i noticed this like cramping or really bad pain around my stomach abdominal area i thought it was just because of something that like didnt go that well with my stomach. Later that night when i was about to go to sleep i felt rather hot and kinda nausious and felt like i had to go to the bathroom i looked in the mirror and my cheeks were red and and i had a very small case of diareah i suggested it was probally food poisoning and it will go away in a few days. The next morning i still kind ahad that bad feeling like sort of nausious my diareah i noticed was clearing up and o yea there was really no blood involved in it and it wasant very watery just like a smaller than mild case of diareah. Its now tuesday and i the night i think i got food poisoning was friday. I just finished eating and have this sort of bad stomach ache that is now clearing up. I just wanna kno if i may have a serious infection or something in my stomach.Please tell me if i should provide u with more information
