Could fried food cause diarr/vomiting + fever?

Yesterday I ate lunch out, and had heavily battered(/fried) fish at McGraths. By evening, my stomach was upset. (Not a good day anyway -- visitors at naptime and I had a migraine.) Today, diarrhea and vomiting all day, and a 99.9 fever. Haven't kept anything down at all.

My mom is willing to come tomorrow and help watch the toddler, but I don't want her to come if I'm going to make HER sick (80 yrs old). What do you think, could it be the fried fish?

Thanks, mamas!

I don't know that FRIED food would necessarily be the cause, but it sounds like it could be FROM the food, some sort of food poisoning - especially if the fish was not fresh/sat out for a long period of time/etc..

I did call McGraths and they said no one else has reported any stomach upset. It's a pretty big chain, so I would expect their safety practices to be decent.

I was ready to assume it was the oil from frying until dh made me take my temperature....

You'd think...but you never know.

It could be totally unrelated to the food. You may just have caught a little 24-48 hours bug or something and it is just coincidence you ate fried/greasy food and then got sick right after?!!?

I dunno. But, fever, puking and diarrhea sound like food poisoning symptoms to me.

Thanks, mamas! I called the advice nurse, but they forwarded me to L&D since I'm 20+ weeks.... They're worried about dehydration during pregnancy, but had nothing helpful to say about likely contagion! Oh well....

Thanks for the suggestion! I've been. Until 4:30, not even water was staying down, but I haven't thrown up since then. Miserable, though, and marveling at mamas who throw up all day every day for much of pregnancy -- and then have more kids!
