I'm starting to worry about my friend. She has been getting really sick lately. Having seizures not full blown, she doesnt eat which she claims is not intentional, and a feeling of not being able to breath. The seizures I say arent full blown because she can tell you that she's having one but she can't stop or control herself. The last one she had she told me that she couldn't hear or see. She's also been passing out a lot. I've been telling her that she needs to go to the doctors but she wont make an appointment. I would talk to her mom but she doesnt live with her. I dont know what to do anymore.

Hi Payton,

Welcome to the Digestive Disorders Community. Sorry to hear that your friend is having these episodes.

No one can really be diagnosed over the internet and it is also WebMD poilcy that we not give a diagnosis, but you might want to use the WebMD symptom checker to help you narrow things down for yourself.

Another thing you might want to do is to start a food diary and see if you have foods that might trigger your symptoms. Is it really everything you eat or does it just seem like it? This will tell you.

WebMD understands that reading individual, real-life experiences can be a helpful resource, but it is never a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment from a qualified health care provider. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or dial 911 immediately.

I'm sure our community will be chiming in soon, too! Good luck and please keep us posted.
