Episode Summary

The Woman Who Craved Pickles
Since Christian Byrne has been born, he has been dealing with vomiting and constipation. At first, the problem seems very minor, but when he is two-and-a-half years old, his parents realize it's more serious than it appears to be and eventually find out that his stomach and part of his large intestine are lodged in his chest from a birth defect called a diaphragmatic hernia. Pat Stopka develops a dark complexion, cramps in her legs, mood swings, salt cravings, and fatigue. At first, her symptoms appear to be unrelated to each other, but actually, all of them are due to a hormonal disorder called Addison's disease.moreless
