How many times per year do you get food poisoning?Jan 4
I'm trying to see if I'm above or below average and if I need to change my life style.
Please also share any theory on why/where you are getting bad food.
I'm pretty sure I'm getting it from eating out randomly, even at reputable restaurants. Got poisoned from a boba drink once.
- Got food poisoning from a sketchy Vietnamese restaurant. I instantly knew something was up a couple hours after as it felt like the food was sitting in my chest. Not fun.
In regards to you getting sick from boba. You could have just picked up norovirus (people call this the stomach flu) and after x amount of hours it kicked in. If you’re sick right now, I hope you feel better!
- Adobe / DataCSpc08Is it food poisoning or just that your body is not able digest some kinds of foods?
- Monster unholy!Only once in my life. Bad fish. Thankfully was only horrible pain that progressed quickly into bloody diarrhea and was over in a few hours.
OP, consider going to the doc if 8+ times a year is a thing for you...you could have a random food allergy or it could be something more serious...
- Atlassian / EngLuffy, M.DmoreFood poisoning != an upset stomach or runny trots. And it takes a while to kick in.
I've got a weak stomach and have a problem after a meal probably every few weeks (sucks less to be me than you'd think. You get used to it.)
I've had actual food poisoning twice in a 40+ year life and it is way worse. Norovirus once, which was worse still
