Last night I had a somewhat scary episode. I had eaten a few bites of a pasta and chicken spaghetti dish when I almost immediately felt nauseous and starting throwing up. It was frightening and disorienting because I almost never throw up except to rare occasions when I get a bad flu or stomach bug, or in my 20’s once or twice when I drank way too much. I am not picky eater and have never, so far as I know, thrown up just from disagreeable food.
This came on out of the blue about a minute after starting to eat and it wasn’t the all in, stomach emptying flu bug/food poisoning type reaction. I had 4 smallish vomiting episodes over the next 20 minutes basically dumping out what was in my throat and upper stomach and then it kind of went away. I’m still kind of weirded out, but I have no oncoming bug or flu symptoms this morning and ate a normal breakfast. I have never had this happen before, ever.
Two things about the meal that were a little different. The pasta, chicken spaghetti I cooked were leftovers that has sat in a pan most of the previous afternoon and night before being put in the fridge and I had an accident where the coarse salt grinder malfunctioned as I was putting some salt into the dish as it was reheated cooked and dumped about 3 -4 times the normal about of salt in the dish. It was more salt than usual but not inedibly so.
I can’t see food poisoning as the food was in my body less than a minute or two before the vomiting began. Will too much salt cause this kind of reaction?
Still kind of freaked out.
