A few weeks ago I had homemade cereal with these ingrediants:

-wheat bran

-sunflower seeds

-fresh apricots

-raisins

-rolled oats

-West Soy soy milk in non-fat plain



I had some mild discomfort and was burping a foul taste up sort of like burnt rotten almonds. It went away after 48 hours.



Then I had the same thing to eat a few nights ago and ever since then I been in hell. I cannot stay off my knees in front of the toilet or on the toilet. I vomit and get sick in my sleep (my sheets are a mess and my house has a foul smell), I am tired, have that same foul taste. Tonight I am really worn out but I have avoided the toilet.



My question is what could this be? I bought the food on two seperate occasions. I have heard of food allergies giving this reaction. I eat wheat flour based cookies, soy burgers, sunflower seeds and, raisins with no problems.



The thing I was asking my mother about and maybe I am off is it could be the soy milk. My diet is very simple. I eat organic, I don't eat highly proccsessed foods, nothing that says 'natural/artificial' flavors or has many perservitives. The soy milk is not really in that keeping. Could this be it?



What does this sound like? Would the flu come back 2 weeks later on the same day?

Fresh apricots: might have a pollutan, or were they organic?

Test, if you get the same feeling, if you the ingridients without the others, take only one per day. Maybe it´s some kind of intolerance.

Great, they just taste better ...

Try an ingredient each day and see what happens.

One thing that I think it could be is dried apricots. Even though it is just apricots I get cramps eating them. I had some that day...
