Neon yellow bile vomiting followed by pale stools after excessive eating of oysters. Temporary side effect of food poisoning?

Hi I am 23 years old. Two nights ago I ate a lot of oysters and soon after began vomiting violently. After a while the vomit was nothing but pure neon-yellow bile . I went to bed and I have felt fine since. However, I just noticed that I am having pale stools--almost beige in color. Should I be concerned or is this a temporary side effect of the food poisoning? P.S.This has happened before when I ate oysters so I think I may have a shellfish food allergy .

Hello,

* The transient vomiting of yellow bile with pale stools indicate intestine effects via the ingredients of oysters due to individual susceptibility.
* If the episode remains over 6-8 hours, there are chances of fluid and electrolyte imbalance, to avoid the same antiemetic medication with more liquids at sessions with oral rehydration salt will help greatly.
* If occurs without the oyster intake also, the same should be evaluated with gastroenterologist consultant.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

So on December 31st I ate sushi at about 12pm and at 530 I had very bad heart burn symptoms. They started to worsen and I had to leave work. When I got home at about 730 I started to vomit like crazy. Threw up all the sushi and anything else in my system. I was getting dehydrated and would drink and throw up anything I drank. I threw up till about 4am. Then the day after all I did was sleep. I had very little bit of soup and tried to drink fluids and would sleep. For about two days after. Since then anytime I ate anything I feel naucious and have to lay down bc I feel sick again. When I pee it s dark and when I go to the bathroom I have tons of gas and my stool is like a very very light yellow. If I don t eat and maybe just have a piece of bread or a pretzel rod I don t really get sick. But today is day six from what I think was food poisoning and I just want to know of this Is all normal or something serious. I just want to be able to eat a normal meal and feel fine. Yesterday all I had was a bagel with cream cheese that I ended up feeling sick from and later a little icecream hours later that didn t bother me too much. What do I do?

This morning after eating some canned hard-packed apples, product of China, and some scrambled eggs, and a cup of homemade green juice, a little while later, I lost my equilibrium and felt I might pass out. But I wondered if those symptoms were food poisoning. The can of apples I opened smelled OK and tasted OK, but there was only about 2 tablespoons of liquid in the can. I was leary about it, but decided to eat them because I couldn t smell anything or taste anything bad. Later I felt nauseous too, and I could hardly walk to my vehicle, and my body felt like it wanted to spin and fall over. Several hours later, after vomiting, I walked around the block 3 times, and drank two bottles of water. By this evening all symptoms have left.

Hi doctor, I m a 28 year old, usually healthy female. I have a gynefix in situ, my period was due on Monday, i have only experienced spotting since then and am having some very strange (for me) experiences. I am so tired that I didn t get out of bed until 14:45 today. I did get up in the night projectile vomiting . I have been getting mild cramps , nausea and have been feeling light headed occassionally over the last few weeks. My bowel movements flip between diarrhoea and constipation . I keep getting achy and in work feeling like I m going to pass out. It feels as though there is something there when I lie on my side at night and for almost 2-3 months I have felt like something is stuck or caught when I bend down and stand up too quickly. I went to a walk in centre last month and was advised to go to the hospital incase it was an ectopic pregnancy . They kept me for 5 hours in A&E, did a blood test and said I should be refered by my GP to a gynaecologist , however, I haven t heard anything! My periods are usually heavy, last months was but this month it is just spotting so far. What would you recommend I do?

I ate some chinese takeaway food yesterday and started feeling like my throat was closing up and almost as if I was having difficulty breathing a few hours after eating it. I suspected it may have been an allergic reaction , maybe to the MSG in the food (although I have never had one ever before) I took some antihistamines and it eventually went away. However, I woke up this morning and I have a pretty bad headache, stomach cramps and diarrhea . I m just confused as the symptoms this morning point to food poisoning yet I am not vomiting, and the throat closing points to an allergic reaction. It has now been close to 16 hours some eating the meal so vomiting would have happened by now. It would be great if I could get a response. Thanks, Thomas

I had a stomach flu since Friday night, I threw up alot over the last 2 days and have had very bad diahrrea. It was very watery and today it is grey to black but a little more solid. I feel much better today. I am drinking gatorade and lots of water. Am I in the clear now? While I was sick I had horrible abdominal pain and alot of gurgling in my stomach. I cant recall having the stomach flu this bad before. Both my daughters had it earlier in the week. It seemed to take at least 2 days in between us getting sick. Im hoping my husband wont come down with it, so far he shows no symptoms. How can he avoid this HORRIBLE bug?
