I am posting this in hopes that it will help another as well as myself.
I have always had stomach and bowel issues but the first wk of jan.
I had developed a sudden onset of hbp along with seizure type episodes
with eye problems that I still have.Well that wk I had been feeling like
I was on the edge of dying,tired as I have ever been and while I was
laying in my bed I felt a pop sensation on my left side followed with a real cold sensation then a hot dagger,after that the seemingly neuro symptoms and the worst migraines I ever had in come the wrap around abd pain,could not eat unless it was soft food and no spice,no tolerance for protein,then it escalated into intestinal pain and bloody, tarry,greenish
stools and the pain became so bad I was just abt.ready for the ER,
I was able to see my doc that day,prescribed cipro and the stools are
white with red mucosa and hard pain during digestion process.Other symptoms that came in with this storm were blisters on hands,ice cold
hands and feet,joint pain and sharp pains that shoot at times down my leg.
I do not know if these are all a part of the same thing or different from each other.Feeling so-so not in so much pain bp back to normal,still getting the migraines.Blisters not healed yet.

It's so frustating toexplayn or describe to a doc you are not used to and really seems soover-worked.It has been a real wild decade and these episodes are notimproving......At least the current symptoms are easing up,til we meet again,LOL
