a few nights ago I had very bad stomach pain, dizzy, and upset stomach. The pain was so bad I had to lay on the bathroom floor, once I made it to the bathroom. I had my daughter to take my blood pressure and the bp cuff wouldn't even pick up a bp (registered EE) twice. My skin color was a chalky gray and my lips were a bluish purple. After about 10 min. when I got to feeling better my bp was up to 90/60 and my pulse was 45. What would cause the skin color to turn gray?

  • Lack of oxygenation, allergic reaction, heart arrythmia Teach your daughter to call 911 if this happens again. I would get a physical from the doc with an EKG to make sure your heart is ok. Sometimes an infection can cause you to look really pale and have severe stomach pain but if your lips turned blue and your BP dropped that low I would get it checked out - possible food allergy?
