I am not a physician. Many of the symptoms are consistent with high dose
radiation exposure, e.g. the early alopecia. Is it possible that she had
an exposure shortly before becoming ill? As a chemist did she use any
radio-isotopes? Also could be consistent with a chemical exposure. What
was her blood profile like?
Best wishes for her recovery,
