My friend has stumped the doctors in my local area. Since last November she has been un-diagnosed after repeated hospitalizations, doctor visits, phone consultations, etc. I'm tired of it (so is she!) and want to find somebody who might offer something other than "I don't know what's wrong with you. Let's test..."
Her symptoms are....
extreme weight loss (70 pounds in 4 months) she is down to 115 pounds
numbness of limbs when she wakes up in the morning or lays down for too long
light headed when standing too quickly
repeated infusions of potassium and magnesium
nothing she eats stays down for more than 2 hours (usually 20-30 minutes) before she throws up
recently went from swallowing pills to swallowing liquids, (except during hospital stays when they only give her pills)
heart rate was ok yesterday but is now extremely slow
blood pressure is so low they are moving her to an intensive care unit
I sincerely believe that if she does not receive a correct diagnosis soon she will not make it to her 32nd birthday (or see her kids start school).
If anybody out there could help cure/diagnose my friend I would be eternally grateful!
