I've had 7 or 8 episodes in the past 1 1/2 years (getting worse and more frequent) in which my lower left abdomen aches and when I try to take a step with my left foot there is a severe sharp pain. If I drag the foot instead of lifting it off the floor, it's not so bad. This lasts from a couple of hours to several days. I noticed after the 4th or 5th time that my fingernails showed several signs---splinter hemorrhages, bright red spots on the lunula, and horizontal grooves---of some kind of cardiac event at the time these things occur. I should mention that both my daughters, ages 21 and 23, and I have been ill for several years with something doctors have not yet diagnosed. We've had symptoms including a 3-year loss of pain sensation, heightened senses (one daughter had heightened hearing and the other has a heightened sense of smell), joint pain that started right after a bout with flu-like symptoms, balance and severe memory problems, etc., and my youngest daughter has seizures associated with stress, alcohol use and sulfa antibiotic use. Most of our symptoms are strikingly sudden in their onset.
