Detailing more about her food illness, Biermann wrote, "When I realized I had to go to the ER was 4 hours into non stop *issues* to put it lightly."

"The dry heaving every 6 minutes made my back feel like it was going to break & I couldn't breathe," she continued. "I'm pretty tough but that s--- was rough."

Biermann also compared her battle with food poisoning to being "almost as bad as when I had 12 kidney stones at once."
