Hello, I need some advise about what happened to me in one resto. We had a dinner to a seafood resto, after that I fill up a survey that the food is not cooked well done (seafood). The next day, I felt sudden abdominal pain, the pain gone worst until the afternoon I ran through the CR -lbm and vomiting for 4x. The pain is no longer tolerable so we went to a clinic. The clinic gave me shots of medicine for vomiting and meds for abdominal pain. It helps for minutes but I still vomit and the pain is still unbearable. The doctor advised us to go to the nearest hospital. I was rushed to ER and the same, they gave me shots for vomiting and stomach pain. I still vomit and the pain is still there. I got confined and had a fever. When I asked for medical certificates from the two doctors, (clinic and hospital). They had the same findings of Acute Gastroenteritis. Now, I reported what happened to the Main branch of this said resto. We had a meeting and they are reviewing my medical records. I spent more than Php 10k for what happened to me. My question was, do i have any legal rights to demand on this matter just in case we will settle the damages? If I would demand on what happened, How much? My personal life has been affected; absence at work, business, I had a Psychological injury- trauma-life threatening/pain-feeling of less safe of foods i ate now-feeling of disturbance ( I cant sleep well after what happened) physical- injections, worst abdominal pain. emotional- i left my baby crying all night. And also the money i used for hospitalization is what I earned on my hardwork for 2 weeks, that is why I feel so less and traumatic that all my hardwork had gone in the wind. Hope you can help me. Thank you so much.
I hope this would help:
The cause is typically a viral or bacterial infection.
Symptoms of Gastroenteritis
With gastroenteritis, the main symptoms you probably have are watery diarrhea and vomiting. You might also have stomach pain, cramping, fever, nausea, and a headache.
Because of diarrhea and vomiting, you also can become dehydrated. Watch for signs of dehydration, such as dry skin and a dry mouth, feeling lightheaded, and being really thirsty. Call your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.
What Causes Gastroenteritis
There are many ways gastroenteritis can be spread:
Contact with someone who has the virus
Contaminated food or water
Unwashed hands after going to the bathroom or changing a diaper
There are also other unusual ways to get gastroenteritis:
Heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, or mercury) in drinking water
Eating a lot of acidic foods, like citrus fruit and tomatoes
Toxins that might be found in certain seafood
Medications such as antibiotics, antacids, laxatives, and chemotherapy drugs
