My daughter ate eggs for breakfast 3 weeks ago, and since then she has been having nauseas, vomiting, diarrhea, stomachache and weakness. I took her to the doctor and he sent her to draw blood and stool tests. Blood results came back ok, everything normal. So I am not what is going on with my daughter, maybe salmonella or E.coli.

I had salmonella infection. My chicken did not cause it, a salad did. I was very ill and the hospital said I had nothing wrong with me. I kept saying I was having diarrhea and they blew it off. The county called two days later and told me I had salmonella. It took a month to get over it.

I had very bad salmonella poisoning, had very bad diarrhea, and ended up putting a cork deep inside my rectum. I could no longer retrieve it, it is still there to this day.
