Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

Did you have a MRI of your brain?

Please don't force yourself to throw up again. Stop it. Period. doing that is not good for you. I've been there and it is so hard on the internal organs.

(((Big Hugs))) and keep trying to find out whats going on.

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

It is a good move going for a MRI. It is scary when you don't know whats going on and I can tell you I mentally kicked myself for quite sometime.

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

Have you checked out the anxiety board? You might have made yourself dizzy at the time, but have now gone to the anxious side of life, that's assuming that you are tested and everything comes back as normal. Anxiety can cause real, physical symptoms but can be treated like any other illness. Just a thought as a possibility to explore.

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

its not likely that the dry heaving was the cause, its more likely that both the dry heaving and how you feel are caused by the same thing,dont discount anxiety or depression a lot of people spend years looking for other answeres because they cant accept they have depression/anxiety

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

The only reason I mentioned it is because I have family that suffers from anxiety and had many of the same symptoms you mention. They are perfectly happy people with no depression or stress, just that pesky anxiety. What did your Dr's have to say about your results and your symptoms? Did they have any suggestions on where to go from here?

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

nope she said shes not a miracle worker....so iv been trying to find a new doctor. i was acually on an anxiety med when this all happeneed. i got off of it about a month ago because when they did my blood work my liver was a little off and the stuff i was on was not good for your liver (prozac) but the doctors said the liver has nothing to do with why i feel this way

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

Have you thought that it might be withdrawals from the prozac?

Purging is so hard hard hard on the body.

Hang in there because your doctors should find out soon whats going on

Re: so scared. can not stand living this way anymore

Again, I doubt very much that dry heaving would cause headaches so that may just have been coincidental. Have you had the hematology labs done, in addition to the chemistry? Have you had your thyroid levels checked as well as immunolgy done? Have you had your eyes checked, both for vision and physical? Are you on any other meds that might have side effects? Do you stay well hydrated? Just a few more thoughts, in addition to anxiety, to maybe look into, though again, I'm not a Dr.
