Episode Summary

Terrifying Tremors
Since Gaby Talarico was six months old, she has been having a strange set of symptoms. She gets a rash that somehow disappears after she and her parents move to a new home, has weak enamel on her teeth, comes down with various infections with fevers more often than other children her age, and has several seizures. Doctors believe Gaby just has febrile seizures, when her seizures are actually from extremely low calcium levels. It turns out that Gaby has autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 1 (APS type 1). Ever since she gets her first period at the age of thirteen, Jennifer Marton Bray has been dealing with extremely heavy periods with severe cramps and nausea. Later, she also develops vertigo that somehow disappears, severe incontinence, and i.b.s. After being dismissed by so many doctors, Jennifer eventually finds out that she has a severe form of endometriosis.moreless
