The water would be causing you to get rid of the poison in your system. If you don't drink anything, no poison will come out.

didn't you go to a doctor and ask for advice?

anyways, I had food poisoning a few years ago for a week, lost about 20 pounds in the process. Not a lot you can do about it but drink water and eat a little plain bread, soup or saltine crackers. Go to a doctor and get some medicine prescribed.

i had some leftover tacos the other week and I woke up with a fat stomache ache and dry heaving/gagging everywhere. Needless to say I eventually threw it up but it was a nasty experience and I'll never look at leftover tacos the same again.

I got food poisoning before, and it was a one night of misery thing. But I had a doctors appointment for a couple days after I got it, for an unrelated ailment (my knee) and chose to ask him about it anyways. And I was basically told by him that when you have food poisoning, it's completely outta your system within like 48 hours, or you die. That's not an exact quote, but the gist of it.

So if it's been 2+ days, I'd assume that the doctor lied to me to scare the **** outta me, or it might not be food poisoning?

You are probably just going to have to keep drinking fluids and wait it out bro. I have had food poisoning a few times and it never lasted more than 1 or 2 days. If you are still sick in a few days go see a doctor. I found the best cure for me when I get upset stomach is water + smoking ganja.

Need to drink gatorade bro. You don't want to intoxicate yourself by drinking too much water either since your body needs to get the electrolytes as well. Drink gatorade, it will do much better for your body.

Do you know what an electrolyte is or why your body needs it? Gatorade is just water with salt and sugar in it. Marlo is better off just drinking water or hot tea or something, because the salt and sugar in the gatorade wont do your stomach any favors.

Treatment of Food Poisoning
The most common treatment for simple food poisoning is simply supportive care at home with clear liquids to stay hydrated, and after vomiting or diarrhea subside, the gradual return to eating beginning with a bland diet (such as rice, bread, potatoes and milk).
The doctor should be consultedalled if the person has nausea, vomiting or diarrhea that lasts more than 2 days, a fever, dizziness or unconsciousness, or if the symptoms are occurring after recent travel to foreign countries, or if people who ate the same thing are also ill. A visit to the hospital should be made if the person experiences vomiting blood, a swollen abdomen, problems breathing, swollen joints, yellow eyes or skin, or sharp abdominal pain that lasts more than 15 minutes.

Food Poisoning Treatment
Self-Care at Home
Short episodes of vomiting and small amounts of diarrhea lasting less than 24 hours can usually be cared for at home.

Do not eat solid food while nauseous or vomiting but drink plenty of fluids.
Small, frequent sips of clear liquids (those you can see through) are the best way to stay hydrated.
Avoid alcoholic, caffeinated, or sugary drinks, if possible. Over-the-counter rehydration products made for children such as Pedialyte and Rehydralyte are expensive but good to use if available.
Sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade are fine for adults if they are diluted with water because at full strength they contain too much sugar, which can worsen diarrhea.
After successfully tolerating fluids, eating should begin slowly, when nausea and vomiting have stopped. Plain foods that are easy on the stomach should be started in small amounts. Consider eating rice, wheat, breads, potatoes, cereals (low-sugar cereals), lean meats, and chicken (not fried) to start. Milk can be given safely, although some people may experience additional stomach upset due to lactose intolerance.
Most food poisonings do not require the use of over-the-counter medicines to stop diarrhea, but they are generally safe if used as directed. It is not recommended that these medications be given to children. If there is a question or concern, you should always check with your doctor.
Medical Treatment
The main treatment for food poisoning is putting fluids back in the body (the process of rehydration) through an intravenous line or by drinking. You may need to be admitted to the hospital. This depends on the severity of the dehydration, your response to therapy, and your ability to drink fluids without vomiting. Children, in particular, may need close observation.

Antivomiting and diarrhea medications may be given.
The doctor may also treat any fever to make you more comfortable.
Antibiotics are rarely needed for food poisoning. In some cases, antibiotics would worsen the condition. Only a few specific causes of food poisoning are improved by using these medications. The length of illness with traveler's diarrhea (shigellae) can be decreased with antibiotics, but this specific illness usually runs its course and improves without treatment.
With mushroom poisoning or eating foods contaminated with pesticides, aggressive treatment may include pumping the stomach (lavage) or giving medications as antidotes. These poisonings are very serious and may require intensive care in the hospital.

Does this help?
