Is this food poisoning or the stomach flu & how long can I expect it to last?


Posted by Never been this sick

I ate Sushi around 10:30pm then woke up at 4am with simultaneous vomiting & diarrhea repeatedly for hours.  This subsided for a few hours then picked back up again.  I also experienced severe lower back pain.  Is this food poisoning or the stomach flu & how long can I expect it to last?  Also, what is with the back pain? I've had a fever too, but it usually only spikes right after a vomit/diarrhea episode.

It really sounds like food poisoning.  You should consult a physician, especially with raw fish.
