My Symptoms

From: Patsy


I have been trying for years by going from doct to doctor to discover what is wrong with me. I have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Analyphalixis, etc. The things I have read on this website sound all too familiar. The only thing I see missing is an intensive itching of the bottoms of my feet and my hands. I am listing my symptoms to see if anyone sees a similiarity: Please help!

(Recently, every month to two months, usually late at night – 1:00 am or so and lasting 1-3 hours. All symptoms happen simultaneously.) 1. Itching hands, feet and sometimes mouth, ears and eyes. 2. Intense, generalized stomach pain-beginning in the upper abdominal area just under ribs, then moving downward through digestive tract. 3. Perspiring (sweat rolling off my body). Have to hold myself on toilet or lay on floor. 4. Severe vomiting, repeatedly 5. Severe diarrhea, repeatedly 6. After all of the above subsides (usually 30 min. to an hr.), terrible, total body weakness, exhaustion. Blurred thinking. 7. Very, very, cold, weak, shaking under the bed covers. 8. Falling asleep from exhaustion. 9. Very weak and hung over in the morning. Please let me know any comments. pf
