    Question Food poisoning or stomach flu bug - is it just me?

    I spent most of last night worshiping the ceramic god - hurling bits and chunks at him on and off for 4 hours. Accompanied by chills and hot flashes.

    This is the second time this has happened to me from Coachella. I don't drink or do drugs, so it was either the food I ate or someone next to me with the bug.

    I hope I'm better for Weekend 2.


    Is it just me, or did anyone else puke their guts out?

    My daughter was sick the night before we left. Maybe I infected you at the group photo. Ooops.

    I ate BLT wrap without the ranch dressing. Everytime I ate, tons of flies would land on my food. Maybe it was bug poo.

    I had a problem last year with the Australian burger or whatever the hell it was. Food for me this year was quite good.

    I threw up on my way back to the campsite on Saturday night after Nas. I think it was that greek food. I didn't drink on Saturday or do any drugs. I couldn't get myself to eat anything on Sunday.

    I felt sick for most of the weekend too.

    In most cases, gastric flu passes for a period of two to four days. The symptoms you describe indicate a cure for bacterial gastroenteritis (stomach flu).
    * Food poisoning has some specific symptoms such as pain in the whole body, shortness of breath, fever. In some cases, difficulty breathing, blood in vomit and stools, dizziness and disorientation.

    Difference between gastroenteritis and food poisoning.

    How is GPS?
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I am doing fine, thanks, after missing 2 days of work. I am attending Stagecoach this weekend and avoiding eating much food that is prepared there. Mostly eating dust.

    I'm pretty aware of things to eat and not to eat when I'm at festivals and things like this where there is just so much sun. Things with mayo definitely go at the bottom of my to eat list along with most dairy products (minus ice cream, because obviously that needs to be super cold to eat anyway). I pretty much stay away from things that don't look fresh at all. I feel like after all the traveling and things I've done, my body is able to take a hit and not get too sick, but still, being sick at something like Coachella would be devastating.

    Yeah so many people blame "food poisoning" when in reality it's the stomach flu.

    I've never had food poisoning in my life.

    However, I did catch the stomach flu in January at Harrah's Rincon, couldn't keep liquids down, fainted from dehydration, and broke 3 ribs, which then took 10 weeks to heal.

    Was it determined that it was from the festival? He had the same symptoms prior to Coachella at different times, so I had thought it was something that was building over time.

    i don't think they will ever know. i thought he said it was the festival, but i know it took them awhile to determine the cause. definitely not trying to blame coachella though just crazy!

    As a chef, I've taken tons of courses on food handling and safety, and know a lot about food born illness. Almost every case of food born infection or intoxication will take place either 12 or 36 hours after eating tainted food. Not in between. 12 OR 36. If you're unable to pinpoint anything you've eaten anything in those 2 time frames that could potentially be problematic, you're SOL and you'll probably never find out.
