Food Poisoning … Again!!


This has been my luck when I go to Egypt, I knew that at some point that I might get food poisoning but I was hoping to avoid it. I don’t think there is a possibility of going to Egypt without getting food poisoning.

Our flight was Friday afternoon from Alexandria so we had to leave around 7:30 am from Cairo to take a minibus to Alexandria, it was a funny road trip and we were going to enjoy ourselves. For the few nights I was there I only ate out twice and I ate with a lot of friends, and at very good places. It was a three hour drive to the Alexandria Airport, we had to take Emirates Airline from there since every flight from Cairo was booked.

Towards the end of the bus trip I was feeling a bit queazy, I wasn’t sure what was wrong, I thought it was just a case of heartburn. When we were about to get on the plane I had a 7-up but it didn’t help. It was a 3.5 hour flight, and a little bit into the plane I felt things get worse and then I knew something was very wrong. When they served lunch I took one bite from the food and then went to the bathroom and vomited quite a bit. I felt better but really out of it, I went straight back to my seat and fell asleep, I didn’t want to eat a bite.

As soon as I got to the hotel in Dubai I asked for a doctor who prescribed to me three medications:

  • Bascopan (Pain)
  • Imodium (Clearing Poison)
  • Primperan (Naseau)

Drinking water felt a little bad even afer a few hours so I wanted to get a bite to eat. Later in the evening I had a little bit to eat, and I threw up again but at that time I think I cleared up everything in my stomach. After that I passed out until the morning, and I felt a lot better in the morning, now I just have to take it easy.
