PT docs - food poisoning?

How soon after eating does food poisoning kick in?

We had Thanksgiving at a restaurant.

It was great and also included raw oysters that were good, but in hindsight were a little off.

I threw up twice about an hour after the meal and still don't feel that great. I continue to be dizzy and nauseous.

I am hydrating now and contemplating some crackers in a couple hours.

TIA

I've had it twice. Both times onset was 2-1/2 to 3 hours after I ate, and the throwing up was every 10-20 minutes for a few hours.

I think it can occur as soon as an hour though.

Food poisoning can occur anywhere from hours to days from when you ate the tainted food. Thatís one of the reasons itís so hard to pinpoint what caused it.

Iím sorry youíre sick and hope itís a mild case. You should call the restaurant, it may not be their fault but they should know just in case.

What a way to spend your Thanksgiving. I was thinking 2-4 hrs after eating generally, but I can see 1 hour as well.

One time it was within an hour for me. Another time it was probably 5-6 hours. I'm sorry, sounds like a crummy way to end Thanksgiving. I'd call the restaurant and let them know. Hope you recover quickly!

Depends on the germ causing it... Staph can hit in 30 minutes, hepatitis-A up to 7 weeks - dozens of others between those extemes. I am so sorry that you don't feel well.

That is a terrible way to end Thanksgiving. About a month ago I ate at a Kyoto Express and had the shrimp bowl as I had eaten many times before. It tasted very salty to me, but I ate about half of it. By the time I got to my car I was throwing up. So I think it could be very soon after you ate up to several hours later.

I think how soon it kicks in depends upon what it is, but it can occur within hours. I hope you are feeling better by now! Food poisoning is absolutely miserable!
