NYC Bug going around - it's NOT food poisoning.

  • m

I was all set to call a favorite local restaurant that I dine at with a complaint of BAD food poisoning. I then heard that there were many others with my "food posioning" like symptoms. It's a stomach flu that's going around, so don't give up your favorite locale if you should unfortunatley get it...

  1. Thanks Michele - I've been walking around since Sat. night thinking that the Japanese food I had poisoned me... I'll give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt.

      I'll say it's going around! We have it here in Maine too. It hit me on Saturday as well. I'll be in NY tomorrow night and I better be up for some serious eating by then! pat

        Two weeks ago, I was on the way home from dental surgery---and blamed the op for barely making it off the subway at 79th Street in time to grasp for the nearest trash bin. Ugh--I must have been a sight--a bag lady of the worst kind. I THOUGHT it was a reaction to the surgery--and was thoroughly nauseated all day. But, then, three days later, my sister found herself sharing the exact same symptoms. Yes, a stomach bug is definitely making its nasty way around the city. My sympathies to all.
