Hello. A strange thing happened last week. I have a history of gastric problems, and last tuesday evening i felt nausea, and did not want anything to eat, at this stage i would normally take a high dose of vitamin c say 1000mg, however, with not feeling well i didnt. I went to bed, but was unable to sleep, and at 1am i was sick, after that i was going hot and cold, and felt unwell.



The next day was just the same, going hot and cold and feeling nausea. I do know a herbal tincture for these symptoms, but i was not sure what was wrong with me. Now for the horror bit, at 11am, i was sick again, but this time the vomit was black.



The next thing i know i was in hospital, and they where doing all types of tests. The blood test was the important one, however it was ok, and the hospital discharged me after 6 hours.



The next day I was feeling weak, but much better, so what was it? black vomit is classic symptoms of yellow fever. Yellow fever in the uk, i dont think so. Yet we do have a water feature in the conservatory, and the water does not get changed much-- no it could,nt be, could it?



Any thoughts?

I agree, sounds like a moderate case of food poisoning.

I thought black vomit was a sign of blood haemorraging in the stomach. I'd not put any Vitamin C (an acid) or anything else in my stomach until I was back to normal. How do your stools look? I wonder if it was Salmonella poisoning. That bacteria can cause internal bleeding and of course the fever, chills, nausea, etc. It releases a toxin as it attacks your stomach walls and is a particularly nasty bug.
Did you have chicken or eat out somewhere that night before you felt ill? Somewhere where you were served chicken or ?
I'd think any physician could have figured this out in seconds. I'm surprised they didn't appear to give you an educated guess or diagnosis. It sounds like food poisoning by salmonella to me.

My first thought was a gastric ulcer, but I'm not sure that you get chills and fever with an ulcer. Maybe a food poisoning. Suggest you see your doctor again so he/she can order upper and lower GI tests, if deemed appropriate, since it's too late to test you for Salmonella. It's highly unlikely it's Yellow Fever which is transmitted by a mosquito. And btw, vitamin C can irritate your stomach or eso****eal lining....take it with food or milk just in case.

Dr. VPCats..let's just ask for a credit card number and run it through equally for all responders !!
Yep, I think we all pretty much agree it sounds like food poisoning of some sort.

Because my insurance provider won't allow me to diagnose over the internet, I just hope you're feeling better. ;-)
