I had a mile case of food poisining this week and although I only vomited once, it was very painful and my face was strained like crazy. At one point it felt like I was seeing stars... If you know what that feels like... Not good.. I then proceeded to brush my teeth after the fiasco and looked in the mirror and almost fainted!!! My face looked like it was bleeding everywhere? Like there was blood in every pore? Now it looks like a day after like I was in a car wreck.. My face looks bruised? What could this be from? My eyes are sore and I can hardly move them around... Can anyone define what has happened to me.. I went to work and they sent me home.. They said I looked like the walking dead...LOL....But any rate.. This has happened to me before about 10 years ago.. Again, another vomiting strain? Is this normal? No one I talked to has ever heard of nor seen anything like this before?
wow I could have almost wrote your post. I was say its normal. I also had a mild case of food poisoning this week except I threw up about 5 times and my face also looked kinda bruised. My mom had this about a yr ago and the ER doc told her its just the strain from vomiting that breaks the tiny blood vessels in your face and causes it to look like that. No cause for concern or anything and should go away within a few days. Mine did about two days later it was fine....
The same sort of thing happened to me a few weeks ago. I'm pregnant and have been suffering with severe sickness and dehydration (Hyperemesis Graviadrum). My husband rushed me to the hospital where I was admitted and continued to have horrible vomiting all night. The next morning I looked like I had been in a boxing match..and lost! Blood vessels had burst in and around my eyes as well as down the front of my neck. My whole face looked swollen and bruised. I also had bruises around my rib cage.
The nurses told me not worry about it and within a few days most of it had cleared up and after a week it was gone completely.
Sorry to hear others are feeling this as well. Now I Feel a tad better.. What I mean is my stomach that is. NOT that others are having this as well.. LOL.. Sorry for that..
The only thing that worries me is my EYES are bloody as well? The eye lid if you pull it down is blood red and the blood vessels in the white of the eye still gets worse as the days go on.. Yesterday I had a tad bit of blood on the white of the eye on the sides.. Today its closer to the color part of the eye.. It gets worse and NOT better? Could I have popped a vessel maybee? Should I go to the hospital? I mean it doesn't hurt or anything.. But about a day after the sickness, My eyes were so sore I could hardly move them around...Nor rub them... Should I be concerned about the blood on the eyes? My face looks 100% better..
Sorry to hear about all of you being sick.. I hate this and wish this on NO ONE!!!
