I have had "bouts" with this problem for many years, my first being at age 16. Each time is exactly the same. Stomach cramps (like diarrhea fixing to hit), then while on commode feel very nauseated, get cold sweat and goose bumps, skin gets very pale, begin vomiting and pass out. My physician said this is classic signs, what do you say?
