Hi,

Last night my father had severe stomach pains. He gets stomach pains a lot but these were the worst he had ever had. He was extremely pale and then collapsed onto the floor. He stopped breathing and completely stiffened up, his fingers and toes were all curled and was struggling to breathe and turned blue. Eventually after a minute he relaxed like a weight had been lifted off his shoulders and started to breathe again. The ambulance arrived and was taken to hospital. He was discharged a few hours later saying everything was fine, as his tests came back fine.

He still has these stomach pains tonight but is feeling better. They have no idea what caused it which really doesn't sit well with me as I thought my dad was dying right in front of me.

Any thoughts of what this could be would be great and if anyone has experienced this.

THANKS!

    my advice is to get a 2nd opinion or go back to hospital if and when it happens again.

    What location was the pain and what tests did he have? Possiblities include an ulcer or appendicitis.

    If all his tests were O.K. it was not his stomach. The cause of his fainting was probably dehydration. He needs to drink more water throughout the day.

    Hello, sorry to hear he's going through such pains but of those tests run did they test for gallstones or kidney stones? I had similar experiences when I had gallstones. Please keep us updated and best of luck.
