Yes, you can! Go to the doctor! There could be organic contaminants or some kind of pesticide causing this. Take care!

I've read of a lot of cases of salmonella caused by contaminants on green onions they use for garnishes.

Hope you're okay, Val!

I hope everything is ok. Food poisoning from the fruit would take longer than 45 minutes. I checked my Bio books and the shortest onset of symptoms is a few hours after eating the tainted food.

The fruit could have been in contact with something nasty any time before you ate it! Hope you are O.K.

I buy packs of ready to eat fresh fruit, and last week i took a pack of fruit salad into work with me, but as soon as i opened the lid i could smell it wasn't right. I just licked a piece of pineapple which tasted sour and the whole lot went in the bin

Depending on how the fruit was stored prior to being put out for sale there are a couple types of poisoning you can get..Check with a doctor better safe then sorry.

they gave me some iv fluids cause i was a little dehydrated but the dr said that it wasnt food posioning that he believes that some of the fruit might have been a little sour and it was just my bodies reaction to get rid of it. told me to take it easy for the next couple of days and to start with a liquid diet lastnight and today but to slowly go back to my normal diet. and that as much as i felt like i wasnt, i was gonna live lol

Glad to hear it! Try some plain soda crackers when you're ready for solids... they always stay down for me...

please be careful hon- if you start to feel bad again- have a second opinion. i recently had to go to the ER back in March from a severe case of food poisioining. it was so bad it caused colitis and a bunch of other issues (they thought i had the flu bug at the same time too so that didn't help!) if you've been vomiting a lot or have had diarreah- your potassium might be low- so if you continute to feel tired this week or sluggish- go to the doctor again and have a blood test done (just a simple one in the arm is what they did on me to check mine) if your potassium is low they can give you a prescription to take to help your energy. (you don't want potassium through an iv- it stings). i hope you get to feeling better soon and don't need anything. but i thought it was worth mentioning- because i started to get sick on a tues, went to the doctor on a wed who gave me cipro and flagyl (made me worse!) and then wound up in the ER on friday way worse...my symptoms kept changing - so be sure to watch your body and not push yourself if you don't feel good. give yourself some time to heal. If it was food posioning- it can be really nasty to deal with. hopefully though your doctor was right and it was just a sour stomach. feel better hon! be sure to drink lots of fluids and eat some bananas to keep your potassium up
