I have livedo reticularis, bulging veins, non-healing body acne, off/on fever, GI bleeds, diarrhea ALT w/constip, migraines, shocks of pain neck lymph nodes. No ibd, ANA negative. Any common cause?

Complicated question: Pika this is not one for the internet these can be caused by a variety if illnesses. Autoimmune problems come to mind. First you need a good internist, consultation with rheumatologist as well. These persons must be board certified in their fields as well.
I would be surprised if your illnesses were not related to a central cause of either an immune nature, or lymptatic system disturbances. ...Read more

I have had diarrhea for 2 weeks and a stiff neck. I was wondering what's wrong.

See a doctor: Impossible to diagnose over internet. Two wks is a long time to have undiagnosed diarrhea.

Good luck and hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Have Had diarrhea for 2 days now, and it is dark black and flaky. Yesterday but not today I felt incredibly dizzy, had a headache, and stiff neck. ER?

Dark is concerning: The blackness of the stool is concerning to me and could represent an UPPER GI bleed as from an ulcer, etc. At age 22 that would be unusual but not unheard of. With your other symptoms I'd be concerned for at least some degree of dehydration so I think my ARMCHAIR SPIDEY SENSES tell me you should be seen today better than tomorrow. Other questions?

This can cause fatigue and make you feel unwell. It is best that you go to your family doctor and get checked and find out the cause of your fatigue and receive medication for the underlying cause. ...Read more

Medical evaluation!: You need to see a physician today. Go to urgent care or an er if you have to. You may only have the flu and dehydration, but more serious illnesses are also possible with these symptoms. At the very least you can be given IV fluids -- dehydration can be so bad it leads to confusion. Please don't try to guess on this -- I can't from here.
