I'll try make this as short as possible.
I'm a 21 year old female with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and POTS. Over the past 2/3 years I've had 4 bouts of GI related problems (vomiting, severe diarrhoea, cramps etc) but they've never been caused by infection, food poisoning or a gastric flu.
About a year ago when I was moving home from the village I've lived in all my life and I suddenly took a strange allergic reaction type thing. It was only on my face and it was really bad - eyes swollen shut and everything. I assumed it was something I was using and bought new make up, cleansers etc and it cleared up. It's happened twice since then with no known cause. Most recently though, I started with trouble swallowing around 7 days ago. Then 2 days later my eyes swole up and I got a rash on my face, pretty much cleared up after 2 days and then the next day I was crippled with vomiting, diarrhoea and cramps. I'm still recovering, still having some trouble swallowing and I can't help but think it's a bit more than a coincidence that all these things seem to be happening for different reasons. I find I'm always worse if I'm stressed or coming near to my period. I think it's all connected. Any help or advice would be immensely appreciated, thank you
