Constant gas and nausea, and a lot of other things!

Hello. I'm a 22-year old male, 145 lbs. In general good health. There are no real health problems that run in my family, although my father had a mild heart attack and my grandmother needed to have a triple bypass surgery.

I'm having major issues with my digestive system. I've always been tall and skinny, and can't gain weight. Lately, I think I'm even losing weight, or muscle mass. I haven't had much of an appetite in weeks. I eat small portions and feel full. Usually after everything I eat, I get a feeling of nausea. I also have constant gas. It seems as though everything I eat makes my stomach feel bad. I can't remember the last time I even felt good after eating. My bowel movements have been a bit more frequent (about 1-1.5 a day) but no constipation or diarrhea.

A few weeks back I had a severe bout of vomiting, although I would probably attribute that to food poisoning.

Other symptoms: my legs and arms fall asleep (numbness/tingling) very easily. I am having a lot of trouble sleeping at night. Constant fatigue. I have low blood pressure and also took a test a few years back and it seemed to show that I am borderline anemic.

I'm taking the medication Welbutrin for depression since about 2 months ago.

I feel like I've had these symptoms all my life, but not as severe as I'm feeling them now.

Re: Constant gas and nausea, and a lot of other things!

It could be a side effect of the Wellbutrin, or it could just be the food poisoning has sort of messed up your system and now you need to recover.

Can you make an appointment with a gastroenterologist, or do you have a family doctor that you trust?
