My wife has been experiencing episodes for almost 2 years now where every 20 -25 days she wakes up in the middle of the night with severe stomach pain which is followed by Severe Diarrhea, then she brakes out into a rash allover and has low blood pressure. One episode she even passed out due to the low BP/shock. We have made several trips to the ER and seen an alergist which didnt figure out what the problem was. We Discovered that she has a Pituitary Tumor on an MRI and it was suggested that she may have Cushings. We flew across the coutry to see a specialist in Oregon who did sevaral test that all came back fine. He stated that she may have Cylical Cushings which most Dr's dont understand. She went almost 5 months without an episode until 2 weeks ago and she had another one which was mild. Last week she didnt feel good and developed symptoms of Beals Paulsey but that went away in 3 days which is strange in its self. She is constantly rashing now and it is driving her crazy. The only thing she showed allergic to was latex and fish. Does anyone out there experience these same symptoms or have any idea what is going on with her?
