I just spoke to my brother. Apparently, he was found by a co-worker yesterday afternoon, lying on the floor under his desk. He works at the main offices of a major pharmaceutical corporation, and was taken by corporate ambulance to their infirmary. He'd been vomiting and when he got to the infirmary he went into convulsions. So they called the paramedics and had him taken to the emergency room. He's got a pounding headache, he temp keeps spiking and dropping, and his white count is through the roof. At first they thought it was his appendix, but now they're saying the appendix is fine. The current theory is food poisoning, because it happened right after lunch. But he ate at the company cafeteria and as far as we know, no one else is sick. about ten years ago he had problems with obstructions that no one could ever find a cause for. He was tested for IBD but everything came back negative. After a year or two the episodes just stopped. A lot of the symptoms are the same, although the convulsions are new. For those who have obstructions, does this sound familiar? He's had a CT scan this morning and they're observing him for right now, but he thinks they're going to send him home later today.
Oh, and he's having chest and back pains as well.
