I'm a 19 year old girl and I had made a post on here a few weeks back about nausea. From the time between that post and today, nothing has changed. I have been nauseated and constantly feel like there is something in my throat for nearly a month now. Lately, I've been feeling kind of fuzzy/dizzy. Not to an extreme; I can still do my work, but it still bothers me. I wasn't planning on making another post, but I'm nearly at my wits end and I don't know what to do anymore.
I've been to the treatment center by my house and to my doctor. The treatment center gave me Xanax; while I was there I could barely speak without crying or hold anything without my hands shaking. I have bad anxiety and hospitals make me nervous. She told me what kinds of food to avoid, and told me if nothing changes, to either come back or go to my doctor. I could barely tell if the Xanax was actually doing anything when I was taking it, so I stopped. I still have a few leftover pills, just in case.
A few days later, I went to my actual doctor. She set up a blood test for me, referred me to a few people to help with my anxiety, and a throat doctor. I had the blood test a few days later. The results came back normal. I haven't been to the throat doctor because I currently don't have time. My doctor told me to buy Omeprazole, to see if it would calm my stomach. It did, for a while. It still helps, but not as much as it used to. Eating helps the feeling in my stomach and throat go away, but it will slowly fade back. Some days are ok, but some days are just frustratingly bad.
I think it might be IBS, but I don't even know where to start checking for that. It's gotten to the point where I constantly want to cry out of fear and frustration. I've had to put a project I've been looking forward to on hold solely because I feel I cannot focus enough to work on it. I thought maybe putting it on hold would help with some of the stress, but doing so has only cause me more stress. I genuinely don't know what to do anymore. I'll link my old post if that helps. If anyone has any ideas or advice, I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
