| | HELP! This is ruing my life!
Hi, I am 21 year old male from the UK. Last year I came down with an unknown illness where I was being sick after everything I ate. This went on for about 7 months. After many trips to the doctors I had blood test, bladder scan and camera down the throat all these showed nothing out of the ordinary. So like doctors do it's not life threatening so they don't want to know. The after effects of this are leaving me with anxiety and depression. Anxiety because now when I feel sick I have massive panic attacks where I think I’m going to pass out and die and depression because I used to be a sociable, active lad with ambition. Now I never go out or do things I used to love and enjoy doing because I always feel ill.
I was 10.5 stone I am now 9 stone and no matter what I do I can’t put weight on because I always feel sick. The sickness has stopped but it’s over a year later and now after every meal I just feel sick, queasy, stomach pains, dizziness, constantly on the toilet plus more. Surely I shouldn't have to live like this there has got to be something wrong. All my friends are off on holidays and trips out and I just make up excuses why I can't go but I would love to be able to go but I am too scared incase I feel sick or have a panic attack while away from home. It’s controlling my life I feel so low and can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to start living my life again and doing things I love without worrying but i dont want to do it with the aid of anti-depressants.
Any advice or suggestions would be grateful.
