Could you mention common symptoms patients may experience with a carotid dissection and fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD)?

My mesenteric dissection was spontaneous the first time in February 2011 and was treated finally with a stent in May 2011. The second dissection was within 32 hours of the first stent placement. Again, they treated the second tear with another stent. This was a first for my interventional vascular doctor who saved my life.both times. Looking back on photos in the month prior to the first dissection I looked very pasty in color and just not healthy, but never had any symptoms.When the spontaneously dissection happened, I immediately fell down grabbing my upper stomach area feeling a bulge and thought I was going to pass out. The pain was excruciating! The dissection was found through a CAT

Part 2: The pain was excruciating! The dissection was found through a CAT SCAN with contrast.
