I : I am so sorry that this is happening to your friend. Please tell her not to be frustrated, and to see out a second opinion. I am glad that she has already seen specialists, but as she has ongoing symptoms please have her see a second opinion and see what they think. If she has worsening symptoms, vomiting, fever, increased blood pressure, or cannot eat then she will have to go to the er.

Seek help: These symptoms are suggestive of a physical condition or an anxiety disorder or both ( anxiety disorders are also biologically based) . If symptoms are acute (hours to days) then seek help at the er. If they have been happening for weeks or months , then call your pcp and explain your condition so you can secure an asap appointment for more thorough evaluation.
Good luck and feel better.
