I also feel weird pains throughout my body throughout the course of the day, at a couple of certain spots in my forearms, at a couple of certain spots in my inner thighs -- the pain will leave these areas and re-enter my toes for 30 seconds, then my fingers, sometimes my jaw, my neck, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> my e<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>r, the back of my head -- all day than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> goes on.

my doctor came out of han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> office, and asked if I was choking, as he moved <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>behind</span> me for the Heimlich maneuver. I motioned him away, and he (and the rest of the office by now) just watched me struggle. I did hear him tell everyone that I wasn't choking, and that it would pass, and spoke soothingly to me. It felt like it went on forever, but was only around a minute. That was long enough for me to start seeing the edges of my van style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ion start to close in, and I felt faint.
