what happened to me?

i've been having digestive problems for a few years now but this time it was something different and now i'm sitting afraid to move or take a sip of water.

it all started yesterday after my supper which was cous cous with vegetables. right after i was feeling quite unwell, unusually full. then i took a drop of peppermint oil in water (which i never did before) and i think it made me feel even worse. then i woke up in the middle of the night feeling like food is coming up my throat, nauseaus, my skin was very sore and i was freezing. took domperidone and inflammatory medicine. kept waking up for the rest of the night and had diarrhoea in the morning. the whole day today i was feeling awful, had nausea and my stomach was sore. had some vegetables and banana but it was upset for the rest of the day until i got home and threw up. it seems that nausea is gone now though i'm not feeling perfectly well. and am afraid to even drink anything as it may come back.

any ideas what it could have been? could it be peppermint oil? (i could burp it's flavour in the morning). i'd also appreciate any advice what kind of food i should eat for a while to avoid nausea to come back?

Just sounds like a stomach bug, don't think it was the peppermint oil, that was just the last thing that you had so that taste is staying with you. I think you could probably drink water or have some flavored Italian ice - maybe some mashed potatoes, but don't overdo it at all.
