Sickness caused by over-indulging on Easter eggs, hot cross buns and other tasty treats led to a number of people suffering from bad bouts of stomach ache over the long weekend.
But, rather than sitting and recuperating at home, they checked themselves in to A&E.
And no, this is not an early April Fools' joke.
A spokesperson for South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said on Facebook: "Believe it or not, we do have people coming into A&E with stomach aches caused by over-indulgence.
"If you've had one too many Easter eggs and a big Sunday dinner, you're likely to feel better after a rest at home and drinking plenty of water."
They added: "Some pharmacies are open this evening if you do require indigestion or other remedies for stomach problems.
"Please help us to keep A&E free for emergencies."
Many Facebook users were outraged that people had even considered visiting A&E with stomach ache.
One person wrote: "I think it's time that these selfish time-wasters were charged for wasting NHS time and money, not counting the lives of people who do actually need help."
Another added: "What a waste of NHS resources. Exercise some self discipline for goodness sake."
