How long after eating could you feel symptoms of food poisoning?


Answer by  jude (47)

It depends on the contaminant and the amount you ate. Symptoms can develop within 30min. or very slowly over days or even weeks. Normally, food poisoning is not serious and will subside within 24-48 hours.

You can tell that the food was bad anywhere from 1-6 hours after consumption. If you think you've gotten a severe case of food poisoning you should go to a doctor.

Food poisoning effects can hit anywhere from two hours to twenty four hours later. It would probably depend on the tainted food that was digested and the severity of the poisoning.

You could feel symptoms within an hour of eating contaminated food. But symptoms could occur hours after eating the food.

You could start feeling the symptoms after about 6 to 8 hours but could be anytime after that also. The food has to digest in your stomach and go threw your system to really have food poisoning. Your stomach may feel upset but that is because your stomach does not like what is in it food poisoning happens later.
