Question: I have experienced pain, like a vice grip clamping on to my stomach, occurring with a severe sense of nausea blood pressure is 127 over 69, pulse 97. My temperature is 98.4, and I have rash from my lower back and stomach to my neck. The rash may be a separate issue; but the sensation of something painfully squeezing my stomach followed by uncontrollable vomiting has occurred three times in the month or so, and I don't think that it can be the flu. I also have burping and bloating happing with this, but no bowel symptoms.

Brief Answer:
I would recommend as follows:

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that it is important differentiate between different causes that may lead to your symptomatology:

- a viral or bacterial infection in the gastro-esophageal tract, which could lead to a skin allergic reaction. This would make the connection between the gastro-intestinal symptoms and the skin rash.
- hiatal hernia, which is not related to the skin rash
- an allergic reaction or a food allergy.

Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your doctor and performing some tests:

- a chest X ray study
- complete blood count, PCR, ESR for inflammation
- blood electrolytes
- liver and kidney function tests.

A fibrogastroscopy is necessary to exclude a possible gastritis or hiatal hernia.

If all the above tests result normal, I would recommend performing some allergy tests.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above issues.

Hope to have been helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

My problem is tha t I always seem to develope a rash between my legs after an intense workout or after spending a few hours doing yard work. I know I have sensitive skin, and the powders and sprays that I use don t seem to help......any advice would be welcomed.

Both of my ankles have been slightly swollen (for years), and at times they begin to have a pinkish to red look only on the lower part of my legs...(right leg worse). Now the redness last couple of days evolved into a darker red like spots (as if a rash, but the skin is a bit rougher, and I was told it was stasis dermatology. My question now is that my cheeks on my face also from time to time become quite reddish (when i m more emotional, or have had even only l glass of wine, wake up after sleeping under warm covers....sometimes one ear is completely red. Are these two situations related or separate?

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hi! I am a 44 year old woman who was diagnosed with Mono approx 1 mo ago. initially I was feeling malaise, exhaustion and my throat swelled up w soreness and I lost my voice. I was diagnosed with Strep, tx with Amoxicillan and then 6 days on the antibiotic I started getting random welts on my body, very itchy and pins and needles type feeling on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet. I then broke out in a rash. So I took myself off the Amox. thinking I may be ahving an allergic reaction and took Benadryl. Being I was away I came home 9 days after tat still feeling malaise. rash not so bad but the itchy palms and feet were still there. My throat swelled up again and I went bk to the MD. he then drew titers for Scarlet fever and Mono. I was then diagnosed with Mono! I was told fluids, bedrest and Zyrtec D as well as Advil for pain. I am starting to feel like myself however, the itcy and pins and needles feeling in both palms of my hands and feet have reappeared. I tend to still get random welts that don t hurt or itch, they just appear like blotches and disappear after some time. I am concerned that these symptoms are not a part of this diagnosis. What else could it be? Thanks...Maria

Dear doctor thanks for your valuable reply however my further query is for last two weeks I have a mild rash under my eye which is persistent and is not going away...I had read somewhere in the webmd website that facial rashes are the first sign...
