My 33 year old African American girlfriend has a history of stomach ulcer
, GERD, anemia, heavy menstruation and cramping, anxiety/depression and asthma. In 09/08, after returning from Mexico, she had severe lower left abdo
minal pain radiating to her back, and eventually high fever, dehydration, vomiting, and black diarrhea
. She finally got some antibiotics and the most severe symptoms resolved.
