I have been having stomach attacks for the past year and a half. My hands and soles of my feet begin to itch like mad. They feel hot and look more pink than usual but the itch is incredibly uncomfortable. Within 15 minutes of the itch I know what's coming next - horrendous pain in my stomach. My stomach begins to feel hard and like a massive hard smooth rock. Actually it feels like my insides will explode right out. The pain is excruiciating. Next comes the runny stools then I usually power chuck a few times. My heart is racing and I feel hot flushed and sweaty. During the episode I pretty much collapse with exhaustion and wait for the next bout then eventually when its finished I need to sleep as I feel so tired. I am currently being tested for carcinoid syndrome/tumours. I have been trying to get pregnant for the past two and a half years with unexplained infertility to date. Someone suggested food allergy which could also be the reason for infertility - who knows just wish I could pop into a machine that would have all the answers as it seems the doctors don't at this stage :(
