My wife experienced extreme pain - which she identified as

My wife experienced extreme pain - which she identified as lower left abdominal; shortness of breath, cold sweats & an acute sense of dread while defecating last night. This is the 3rd time in 4 years that this has occurred but last nights was the worst of the three. She thought she was having poisoning symptoms but I don't think so. Others ate the same food with no issues. The episode was on-going, even after leaving the toilet. Her symptoms did improve after 30 minutes or so. During the episode she thought she was going to die. After I got her in bed she was able to sleep and is fine this morning, (no pain with abdominal pressure) . Once reclined last night her blood pressure was 98/70, pulse 75 then subsequently 65. No fever. She is 26, not pregnant, 2 children, slim but not athletic and generally healthy. Confused as to what this could be?

Respected Doctor, I am 28 years old, female, who recently got married 3 months ago. From over 3 yeras, I have been experiencing pain in my legs and have consulted numerous doctors regarding this. Some said the base tissue beneath my feet are thin, which is the reason why i could be experincing the pain and inflammation after prolonged periods of standing and light activity. I had been adviced to avoid wearing high heels and since 2 years, I have been wearing only flat shoes. However lately, I have developed lower back pain and extreme pain around my calf and shin area with just 5-10 minutes of walking. My work involves sitting for continuous 8 hours but upon a doctor s advice, I use a pillow for back support. Please help!

Hello! My doughter has been diagnosed with HSP last Monday. During the week she has experienced purpura spots and ematomas for the first days (now disappearing), then intermittent swallowing of joints on a daily basis, ankles first, then wrists, then feet, then knees, then ankles again. The urine analisis which we do every morning are fine, but today she complained about abdominal pain in the right side identifiable just under the liver region (which we have been told may be dangerous hence the urine analisis). She has good appetite and no signs of vomiting or stomac pain. Should we take her again to hospital and see a paediatrician or should we just wait? Regards.
