Im a 20 year old female, 5’9, 257 lbs. I have been feeling sick starting at 6pm day, and its 1:30am now. My symtoms are feeling shakey, nausea, headache, and diarrhea. I just made myself throw up to see if I would feel better, and I found a blue sack in my vomit with a white, almost grainy powder in the middle. I havent eaten any candy or anything that resembles the blue sack in weeks. It almost felt like a blood clot on the outside. I took acetaminophen and ibuprofen today but that was after I started feeling ill.
