Maybe you should get wraps instead. Less risk of infection.

the thing is I eat most of my meat rare and still bleeding, and it doesn't bother me. I remember at work this past summer we had a cookout, EVERYONE got food poisoning, I ate twice as much as anyone else, and I didn't even get gassy. I eat chicken that's barely cooked through, raw eggs, barely cooked meat, steak that's been in the fridge for two weeks. None of that bothers me. But there's just something about subway 5 dollar footlongs that make them careen out my asshole at the speed of sound

Damn, I have issues eating like everything and not feeling ill, but even I don't ever feel ill or get anything from eating there.

Dennys would always give me the shits. I think it was too much grease, and maybe the particular kind of grease they used.

Most breakfast foods hits me hard. So does cheese/yogurts. Of course I probably have Chron's or something.

I've never had a problem with Subway... maybe its just that particular franchise?

I love the Chipotle Cheese Steak they have on promo right now!

Quizno's makes me blast and cry like a little baby. Every time. It literally takes 3 hours from eating to blasting.

I ate nothing but Subway for about 2 months in Jan and Feb, and never really had a problem.

More details about the diarrhea please. Physical descriptions are a must.

Make us feel like we were there with you.

I guess the best thing you could do is ask for a doctor's prescription immediately and avoid that food stall next time.

Doesn't give me the shits but it did set off my first gallbladder attack over 10 years ago. Ate one and was in the ER about 4 hours later. No more attacks for 4 years after that then when all to hell. Too much mayo on that sub that night....cost me over $1,500 as I didn't have insurance and was in the ER for about 5 hours.

Nope. Nothing wrong with Subway. To be honest, compared with the food I've had in the City Campus of our uni, the restaurants around the campus I'm at now is heaven.

Nope. Never had this problem, and have eaten many a sandwich from Subway. Just got back, actually.

Footlong roasted chicken breast on Monterey Cheddar bread, toasted, with pepperjack, lettuce, a bit of onion, lots of black olives, jalapenos, a line of mayo, honey mustard, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper.

Mmmm.
