food poisoning

On my 10th day in Turkey I developed diahorrea which made me quite ill. I suffered excrutiating stomach cramps, shivers, constant diahorrea with no control, felt sick to my stomach, although I wasn't sick and headaches. I also had a stiff neck and joints. I returned home in a terrible state and am still suffering with diahorrea and stomach cramps now one week later. Most of the other symptoms have gone now although I do keep sweating and am having headaches. It is Saturday now, so if no better by Monday will go to the doctors. It has all left me feeling very weak, I justy haven't had the energy to go to the doctors yet. Is this food poisening? Patsy Smith

Re: food poisoning

Definitely see the dr. It could be food poisoning or you could have picked up a parasite or bacteria that's causing your symptoms. This isn't something to let go, even if you're feeling a bit better on Monday.

Please keep us posted.

Re: food poisoning


The stiff neck and headaches could also indicate a type of meningitis which could be very serious. I would see the Dr. ASAP.
