Episode Summary

The Woman Who Kept Falling Down
Ever since he was first taken home from the hospital, little Avry Conley has had projectile vomiting and diarrhea. It appears to be a virus or food allergy, but he also begins to develop a diaper rash, and becomes lethargic and unresponsive. It turns out that Avry has been suffering from a rare disease called mastocytosis. Growing up on a farm in Minnesota, Linda Smith has always been active. She never went to the doctor, even when she becomes dizzy and fatigued during puberty. However, Linda also experiences headaches that only seem to occur in warm weather, an extremely high pulse rate, blackouts, and eventually, chest pain. Her doctor finds out that she is suffering from orthostatic intolerance.moreless
