When will the food poisoning symptoms go away?

I had food poisoning early Sunday morning and for about 2 days now I have felt pretty normal except when I eat. I feel normal and then once I eat I feel nauseous still. I haven't vomited since the initial food poisoning but when will the nausea from food go away?

    Depends on what caused the poisoning?

    Staphylococcal FP is from eating food contaminated with the toxins of certain types of staphylococci; which are common bacteria; it generally results in diarrhea and vomiting. Symptoms start abruptly with severe nausea and vomiting starting around 2-8 hours after the contaminated food is eaten, symptoms usually last up to 12 hours and recovery is usually complete.

    It should run its course in a few days. If it continues over the weekend, then call your doc on Monday and make an appt.
