Have your suffered food poisoning on holiday ? holiday ruined ? what can you do ?
Suffering food poisoning on holiday often represents one of the worst type of illness you can suffer from. It arises when food is often undercooked ( such as chicken ) or when there is poor hygiene in the kitchen that prepared the food. Symptoms of food poisoning will often be diarrhoea, cramps, flu like symptoms, vomiting or a headache as well as a loss of appetite. Depending on the severity of the poisoning it can cause long term symptoms that can take months to resolve while in some cases, symptoms can be permanent. For example, irritable bowel syndrome can be permanent as can abdominal pain for long periods.
