Danielle reported having ‘severe’ stomach pains the day after bingeing on sushi that led her to seek medical help
Danielle needed several days before she made a full recovery from her sushi binge and was prescribed medication
‘Our dinner was about 2 hours long because we were so stuffed we had to keep taking breaks.’
‘Immediately after dinner we were so full we had to sit in my car for about 30 minutes before driving home. My stomach felt very firm from all the sushi and probably the rice that expanded in my stomach.’
‘That night I went to sleep at my boyfriend’s house and I had the worst stomach ache but didn’t think much of it since I had a huge meal! I am not a morning person so when I woke up around 6am the next day I knew something was wrong.’
‘My stomach and chest had intense pain and it was hard to take deep breaths.’

Surprisingly, Danielle says the traumatic experience hasn’t put her off sushi forever – and she’ll definitely be eating her favourite food again.
She says: ‘I will definitely eat sushi again! This experience has not ruined sushi for me, or the all-you-can-eat sushi experience.’
