What Caused This?

judy_jayOctober 24, 2006

I went to my company picnic last Sat. I was fine before I got there. I did have kind of a lot to eat, but so did everyone else. My lunch included a hot dog, a cheesburger, a small helping of potato salad, tomatoes & lettuce on the burger, some chips, some fruit & some trail mix. About an hour & a half after I got home, I had a horrible diarrhea, and then for the next 5-6 hrs. had bad stomach cramps & the diarrhea continued. Even yesterday I still felt sick. No one else in the family or at my company was sick, just me. Can anyone help in identifying why this happened? Thanks in advance.

Most likely either you just overate causing an osmotic diarrhea, or you are something the 1-7 days before which was stewing until then and it was purely coincidental that you got sick right after the picnic.

Other option- you have an intolerance to one or more of the foods you ate at the picnic. You can test that theory by eating one of the foods at a time and see if you get sick.
