- Any idea what i had?
(Asked by a 21 year old woman who has Vomiting, Diarrhea, Incoherent, Vaginal Bleeding Between Periods, Abdominal Discomfort, and takes Celexa)
Within seconds, diarrhea and vomiting started until GI was completely empty. I became incoherent during and collapsed onto the bathroom floor. Was unable to move. Rapid, shallow breathing started. Ambulance was called, acute abdominal pain started when they arrived ~30 mins after episode started. Incoherence didn't stop until 1-1.5 hours after episode started. Abdominal pain continued to worsen. Once I went into the ER room (2 hrs after episode) vaginal bleeding started - not time for period so it was unexpected. Doctor suspects gastroenteritis but couldn't understand the vaginal bleeding. Was given Zofran, fluids and pain meds but the abdominal pain subsided on its own. Any idea what happened?
