So I'm a 15 year old female, and ever since the 9th of march I've been feeling quite ill. I went to the doctors and they said it was viral. A week later I went back and they prescribed me a antibiotics for sinus infection. A few days later I was throwing up. Which I thought I could have had a bug or it was side affects of the antibiotics. Which I think were amoxicillin. I waited a few days and went back to the doctor as I still felt very ill and they said it may be the antibiotics, so I had to finish the course with the fear or being sick again. I have a phobia of sick which didn't help at all. I carried on with the antibiotics and the nausea never went away however I was never sick again. Which made me believe it was a bug in my stomach. Two weeks after the the nausea is constantly there so the doctor prescribed me Gaviscon as I had really bad burps.
I am currently still taking this now. I have been missing days of school as I can't cope with the feeling of nausea. I haven't been sleeping properly, I have to sleep sitting up or on about 3 pillows, which isn't comfortable. I leave the light on as I feel less anxious.
I went back to the doctors and he said it was stress related as exams are coming up, prescribed me omeprazole (which takes 2 weeks to start working) have not seen any change so far and he told me to come back after my exams which is June!! Me and my mum are taking affect of this as she is stressed because we can't find an answer. I went back to the doctors today and I have finally been given a urine test and stool test to see if I have any infection or inflammation in my gut. However I can't go back till the 18th of may an I have exams before then. The nausea is constantly getting worse and I am going/ feeling like I ha e to open my bowels more than normal. It's horrible anyone suggest anything?
