I could really use some support.  I am a 54 yr old mother, grandma & wife.  I was diagnosed with IBS (but not treated with meds) about 30 years ago & fibromyalgia about 14 years ago.  About 5-1/2 years ago I suddenly got really sick to my stomach and, with no warning.  I was fine when I woke up, then suddenly started throwing up uncontrollably, noisily (which I'd never been), and violently.  I ended up in the hospital overnight.  They couldn't say what caused it.  Six months later I got these white polka dots on my feet and hands.  24 hours later I git sick again.  This time I was hospitalized for 4 days.  A colonoscopy found a few polyps that were removed.  I was told I probably got this from the grandchildren.  The doc said, "you know the anti-bacterial that says it kills 99.9% of germs?  You have the .1%.". 6 Months later I woke up fine, then an hour later started vomiting again.  This last description is what has been happening for 5-1/2 years, every six months, up until this year.  I went in around the usual 6 month timeframe, thought I had six more months to keep trying to find answers, but got sick again a month later.  That was June & July this year.  It happened again last Friday.  I was released Saturday after 5:00 pm.  I have all new docs.  I've had a brain cat scan, a gastric emptying study, an abdominal ultrasound and countless blood/stool/urine tests and no answers yet.  I still have a small bowel follow through this week and a follow up colonoscopy next week.  The only out of the ordinary thing found was some nodules on my thyroid.  All thyroid tests are normal.  This is so hard on me & my family.  I am desperate for even a suggestion of a direction to move in to find out how to stop this.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
