Can't believe I still feel so poorly? Tummy bug or food poisoning?

I started with tummy cramps on Thursday afternoon, which progressed to horrendous, watery diarrhoea (tmi)! I felt and still do feel absolutely terrible? sad

I haven't vomited, I've felt very sick, hot/cold, very tired and short tempered? I didn't eat for two days, but ate toast and simple food on Sunday, I've still got horrendous diarrhoea, everytime I drink or eat it starts it all off again?

I haven't been able to go to work today, so went to the doctor, he wanted me to do a stool sample, and asked about chicken etc?

How long is likely to last, and what do you think it might be? I've thought back to what I'd eaten on Thursday and I had egg salad, vegetable crisps, olives and feta cheese and a McDonalds burger blush

If the sample comes back as poisoning, what happens then?

Please tell me it will pass soon, I feel so ill?

Could be a number of things most of which you just have ride out. Are you in contact with small children? My DD gave me rotavirus which had these symptoms was awful.

I've had a similar thing but with a horrible episode of vomiting every 20m for a few hours, followed by days of queasy feeling. I thought it was food poisoning, but if there's a bug going round that's probably it...
