    Default Food related health question (erp!)

    DH took us out to dinner last night. We all tasted each other's food
    (he had salad and soup, I had puttenesca pizza, and DD had smoked
    salmon and farfalle). We were all pretty stuffed, and didn't intend
    to have dessert, but they told us it came with our meal (mother's day
    and all), so DH had a good cup of coffee (bitter, but complex flavor,
    not the current charbux variety), and I took home some sabayon with
    strawberries.

    Just before bedtime, I found there was room in my tummy for a bit of
    dessert. An hour later, things were not going well in the digestive
    tract, sharp pains, things like that. Within 2 hours, the contents of
    my stomach were in the the waste basket.

    Do I blame the dessert, or is that too short a time-span for something
    in the eggs or on the berries to have caused a reaction?

    could you possibly have gallstones? A gallbladder attack can also
    produce all the above. For some, especially after a particularly rich meal.

    Egg custard from a slovenly restaurant can be deadly... what's their
    specialty... from the combo of the three items you ordered the joint
    sounds like a garbage dump.

    2-4 hours after eating tainted food is about when you feel it. Whatever you
    got it was very mild because salmonella, e-coli etc would leave you sick for
    several days and not just a couple of hours. Vomiting rather than diarrhea
    means the problem was still in the stomach so it had to be the dessert, yes.
    Sensitivity to food pathogens varies between individuals and it also varies
    witchin individuals from day to day so it is easy to explain why only one
    person got ill.

    I'm blessed with a relatively iron constitution, and rarely get sick.
    When I do, it's pretty mild. Flu? 3 days and i'm on my feet.
    Colds? 7-10 days of the sniffles and runny nose. This did seem like
    a pretty quick thing, altho at about the 24 hour mark, I got some more
    cramps, but that was blessedly it.

    Thanks for expanding on what I read about the process

    Had a medical emergency in January, and they did test for those.
    Unlikely, especially since my usual diet is very lean.
