I thought I had food poisoning two days ago— woke up

Customer Question
I thought I had...

I thought I had food poisoning two days ago— woke up projectile vomiting and then had a fever later that day. I felt better the following day. But today I’m throwing up again and feel sick. What’s going on? This happened to me about a month ago, too. But I recovered after about a day. Not sure if both incidents are related. Not sure what’s going on with me. Thanks.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?

I had a fever for about a day. Don’t have a thermometer but I could feel it— could barley move, felt terrible. Took Tylenol. Was fine the following day. No fever now, just nausea and just threw up. No respiratory symptoms.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

A few days after the first bout I had a mosquito bite that got infected, with a red line, and had to be on antibiotics.

No smoking. The first night I got sick I had a glass of wine with a salad.

No bloating. No dizziness. Do I need to see a doctor?
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe there may be a possibility of Viral gastroenteritis in your case.
And the main line of treatment includes rehydrate yourself with plenty of fluids and Oral rehydration solution (Gatorade).
Also, take Metamucil.
Continue to eat easy to digest food like soup or BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast).
Take OTC Zantac and Mylanta Gas.
Take proper rest and avoid dairy products, caffeine, alcohol, undercooked meat and fish and fatty rich food.

If your symptoms persist you need to be seen by your regular doctor for a clinical examination to rule out underlying possible cause which may include Intestinal parasitic infection, Gallbladder disease, Gastroesophageal acid reflux, Irritable Bowel syndrome.
If you have severe abdominal pain and persistent vomiting then visit ER for treatment.
I hope this helps.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
