For several years I have been having what I call "episodes". They were very infrequent, maybe two a year. In the last couple of
years, they have become more regular and very scary. I have had five in three weeks. They are almost always at night after I have been asleep for a couple of
hours. I wake up having lower abdomenal cramping, then I feel an extreme heat come over my whole body. Sweat pours of
f my body and I become pail in color.
