My question is with regard to a differential diagnosis

My question is with regard to a differential diagnosis between food poisoning and a stomach virus. 3 of 4 people at my dinner party became ill 48 hours after eating. Symptoms were the same for each...vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, etc. lasting for approximately 24 hours. Can food poisoning symptoms begin as long as 48 hours after eating or is it more likely that this was a virus.JA: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?Customer: Symptoms have subsided which is true for all 3 people. My concern is whether to eat from this restaurant again. Can Food poisoning begin 48 hours AFTER eating.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: None for all 3 people..

I have a question about migraines. Anybody can help? I can

Hi there,I have a question about migraines. Anybody can help? I can show results from last two exams (MRI and MRA) of my brain. Question is: I have intense pain at times on right side and at times left. If I touch there it hurts. Sometimes I feel numbness in that side of face and body (mostly right side). Sometimes I feel shortness of breath but I also suffer from anxiety. I take contraceptive pill. Could I be at risk? My neurologist said all is normal and recommends pills for pain only. Please advise. Thank you!!

Dr. Love, I found 2 articles about how stress affects liver

Dr. Love,I found 2 articles about how stress affects liver enzymes. I've put the shorter one here:https://www.researchgate.net/publication/40769275_Association_Between_Posttraumatic_Stress_Disorder_Following_Myocardial_Infarction_and_Liver_Enzyme_Levels_A_Prospective_StudyThe longer one is actually better. It talks about how stress in Japanese workers increases their enzyme levels. I didn't attach it just because I didn't think you'd want to read it.I'm just about as stressed as you can get. The only problem is all my enzymes aren't raised. Only the ALT is. Do you think stress could be the answer?
