Wow.As a man who has been clinically dead 6 times....that was one hell of a night!
It is good to know that there are others out there just as stubborn as me when your body isn't right. Most would have immediately gone to the ER, but you concluded it was just the burrito...I do the same thing, just never imagine it is anything worse than that. Then driving yourself to the clinic, well that is a very familiar act and they really never work out very well.
My last outing was salmonella from of all things, an expired Cliff energy bar I bought at the gas station on the way to work. All day I was'nt feeling right, but shrugged it off to something I ate the night before. I even stopped at the store for groceries on the way home. I took a shower and mid-way through I suddenly realized that I was about to puke for the first time in probably 20 years.
I remained in the bathroom for the next 7 hours, puked 52 times before passing out on the floor wrapped up in bath towels. I woke up in my own vomit and then started going the other way leaving me glued to the toilet for the rest of the day. I was so dehydrated that I felt like I was in shock.
Day 2 I decided that I had to get some help, but I had already lost my voice from the puking so I couldn't call for an ambulance. I tried to drive to the ER, but was so out of it that I couldn't find my way through the parking lot. I just had no idea where I was or what was happening, and then passed out right there in the hospital parking lot. It took 3 IV bags to get me back to the real world. Isn't life fun?
Glad to hear that you are okay, the idea of a heart attack scares the crap out of me personally. I would rather deal with another gunshot wound than a heart attack. Stay on the mend and listen to the body when it is telling you something. I have been trying to do the same thing lately.
Food poisoning can really be a biatch. I'm familiar with that "both ends" phenomena, lol.
