I am describing my symptoms in hope that someone out there has experienced the same thing. I stumbled across this site by accident trying to look up my symptoms. I have seen sev. G.P.'s, digestive and alergy specialists. I have an appt. next week with a neurologist? I am getting desperate. Duration: Several years (10 or more) with a period of 2 years of no attacks, until abt. six months ago when they returned more severe than before. 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. Dizzyness, and feeling flushed. 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 nausea and vomiting, repeatedly 5. Severe diarrhea, repeatedly 6. After all of the above subsides (usually so in. to an hour), terrible, total body weakness. 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. If anybody is/has experienced this please post a message. I really need help. pf
