Dizzy, hives, red skin, SEVERE pain in stomach
I am a 26 year old female and I am out of my mind about what is happening to me every time I go shopping, shower, or exert myself. (Can't even take my dog for a short walk!) And I can not get a job because I am unable to be safe currently in a work environment.
For the last 2 years (almost 3) I have had been to the hospital ER a total of 5 times. (1 is to many for me!) Every time they send me home and tell me everything looks perfect... My family doctor tells me the exact same..
I become dizzy, light headed and I see black spots and eventually have to close my eyes or I get a headache. When this happens I develop welts all over my body and I turn bright red all over. The welts are as big around as a coke can. They usually overlap. My eyes generally become bloodshot and my body is extremely warm to the touch. I can't breathe to well and I have a short wheeze, sometimes I feel that I can NOT catch my breath or I am out of air. I will feel the need to urinate or defecate extremely badly and I do end up doing so when I can make it to a toilet. About 80% of the time I end up having severe upper groin (in the V area) pains. It's sharp, constant, and across the middle to right side. I experience chills and violent shaking. This usually happens when I can breathe again but I still have the pain and redness/hives. I sometimes feel the urge to puke, or the need in some cases and that will help my lower groin area for a few second then I am back in pain. The pain can last up to an hour to 3 hours or more, if I go to the ER they give me Morphine. (UGH, it hurts my stomach and then I'm in all kinds of pain for a while.)
I went to the ER Friday November 23. I had almost passed out on the floor of a store. I was shopping feeling great and then finally I felt dizzy and had to sit down. Then all of the above symptoms happened. I was taken on a stretcher to the ER. They took my blood and tested it and found everything is just perfect and my vitals were normal.. This is the same thing they tell me every time. I am in so much pain but nothing is wrong?
It's not just random timing either. I've had this happen several times (about 10) after a shower/bath, without the stomach pains, but severe breathing issues. I can take a warm, or cold bath or shower and it's the same.
I do not drink, smoke. And I do not take any what so ever medications. I am clean and healthy when it comes to my body. However I did have my gallbladder removed 7 years ago because I was having gallbladder attacks. Ever since I was fine till 2 years ago.
I've tried going to a specialist... They told me everything was fine. (On his charts literally flipped it through and looked at me crazy and told me I am healthy..) The ER doctor I was given on Friday Nov. 23rd basically did the same thing. Ugh..
I'm trying to find some answers or suggestions to what people would do? Or what it could be that is causing this issue I am having? Thank you.
