I didn't see any GI...
I didn't see any GI docs so I picked Endocrinology. So - my hubby and I BOTH have GI symptoms after eating peanuts - dry roasted - in the shell. From the same bag of peanuts. Brand name Hines. Both of us got bad nausea and liquid diarrhea.
WHAT could we have? WHAT do we need to be tested for. This is still going on - for 2 days now, although getting better. Less diarrhea, but still waves of nausea.
PS: I did report it to Brookshires. They wanted the empty bag, but I had already thrown it in the trash, and it was picked up.

This is likely to be contaminated dry roasted peanuts. This may have caused food poisoning or viral gastroenteritis.

The peanuts can be cultured (a test to grow the organisms) to confirm the diagnosis.

Very rarely both of you may be allergic to the contents.

The initial treatment is;

1) PeptoBismol

2) Lomotil; may only be given if the diarrhea is vigorous.

3) Gatorade / Pedialyte

4) Plenty of fluids

5) BRAT diet; banana, rice, applesauce, toast. Vegetable broths / vegetable soups, coconut water also can help.

6) Probiotics
