    So the past four days i was cut down by fevers, upset stomach, aches and pains all over the body, major fatigue, and headaches. My friend told me its because I put raw eggs in my whey shake. But i thought the chances of getting salmonella from raw eggs are like one a million? I know its not the flu though because i got my flu shot... What else could it have been?


    lost 9 pounds in the last four days because of loss of appetite and puking... :wtc:

    I'm not asking OT for advice. I'm merely wondering what it could have been. I'm fine now.

    I've been eating raw eggs for years. The likelihood of getting salmonella is about the same as being struck by lightning.

    chances you got it from eggs is about 1 in 20000.

    given its the holidays, my money is on undercooked meat, probably turkey

    I heard stomach flu is going around. Caught it yesterday too... Weird thing is everytime I'm putting on weight that happens to me. Last time it happened was 2 years ago when I was approaching 185lbs.

    I wouldn't rule it out so quickly.

    A nurse here at work mentioned that the "flu shot" that everyone gets is more of a respiratory flu vaccination. The regular flu, with symptoms like fatigue and upset stomach has no vaccination since it's basically resistant to vaccines these days. :noes:

    When you start pissing out your ass, that's when you know you have food poisoning or salmonella.

    neither would i, but for other reasons.

    the strain that you're being immunized against was picked months ago by scientists of what strain they THOUGHT would be the most prevalent this flu season. so the flu shot might not be be right because you could have gotten a mutated strain or an entirely different strain

    You did not get salmonella. I got it about a year ago from eating a chicken sandwich from a restaurant that somehow screwed it up.

    Symptoms Include:

    $hitting about 10 times a day
    Fever
    Severe Stomache Pain
    Eventually turned into $hitting pure blood.

    Ended up having to go to the ER, they put me on morphene, hydrated me, got me on a bunch of drugs and after a few days i was right as rain.

    You probably got the stomach flu.

    Are you absolutely sure you had a fever though? Did you take your temperature? Typically, the "stomach flu" will not cause a fever because it is a virus and not a bacterial infection in the body.

    If you had a fever it could have been from food poisoning... but the "stomach flu" is also a potential culprit.

    Either way, chances of it being from your eggs is VERY unlikely. Chalk it up to food poisoning or the flu.

    I seem to suffer the same fate.

    Every time I try to put on weight I end up getting sick. I was up 12lbs since starting my bulk and caught some type of cold or respiratory infection and was out of the gym for a week and a half and eating poorly. I weighed myself at the gym tonight and I am already down 6lbs :wtc:
