Have you been camping? Drinking from a stream? Anything like that recently?

It could be food poisoning, it could be anything - there are alot of things that include your symptoms. If it persisted more than 3 days you need to go to the doctor, because after 3 days you start getting dehydrated and your body starts starving itself. Glad to hear you're going tomorrow!

I don't like tomatoes, so it can't be that...and DH has had a little bit of ickiness but only about 2 days worth....he's always been an up-chucker anyway.

No cramps, no diarrhea, no fever. Just nausea, vomiting, tiredness and hiccuping shortly after I vomit.

Nope, nope and nope. We've had the horrible flooding in Cedar Rapids, but I have stayed away from any of that area. I'm in Marion (connected to Cedar Rapids) and we haven't had a boil order or anything, plus we drink bottled water.

Angie have you tried Emetrol for the nausea ? You can find it in any drug store.
Works like a charm for me after the second or third dose.

Middie, never heard of it! I'll look it up.

DH thinks that food poisoning would already be out of my system...???

Not in all cases Angie. I had food poisoning once and was sick for about a week.

That WebMD link contains a lot of answers to questions you are asking.... as well as more accurate information and symptom listings.
