Anxiety, fatigue, no appetite for 3 weeks?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone,

About 3 weeks ago I was eating dinner at home alone when suddenly I got very nauseous and and started panicking. Over the next few days I assumed I had a virus but the doctor found nothing in blood/stool samples. Well now I am waking up every morning with horrible anxiety and diarrhea. Throughout the day I have no energy, just chronic fatigue, and I have no appetite even when my stomach growls, so I just eat when I assume I should. I have 24/7 stomach pain, like a light annoying burning. By 6:00 pm, I suddenly feel 80% better! The stomach burning is still there but I start getting in the mood for food anyways. Also, this whole 3 weeks, I've had absolutely no sex drive or libido at all. I feel hopeless sad I am a 19 year old male. I live alone and try to go out all day but it isn't helping and when I went to visit my family, the thing that always makes me happiest, the symptoms were still with me. I have no interest in anything sad

    Also, throughout the day, I sometimes think about my family growing older or passing away as well as me dying. Although I don't think this is the root of whatever I'm going through.

    Have you heard about psychosomatic illness?, sometimes our bodies react dramatically to our emotions.​

    hi

    ​feeling awefull all day and starting to pick up around 5pm onwards does happen to many, you may get to a point where your going to start snacking lots late at night, try not to go over 2 litres of water a day also understanding most foods you eat contain water, also include your other drinks like coffee for instance within your 2 lires, water will give you a feeling of full which will reduce your hunger for food, hence weight loss will almost happen, but it is important you dont drink much more that the recomended daily amount of water, are you on meds ? from what you are saying you do have health anxiety, but also from what you are saying it sounds like your on a ssri medication too ? your doc seems to have given you the all clear so next step would be CBT therapy , calm group , . take care you will get there

      Hi Wayne!

      Yes I get the urge to snack at night but I've been trying not to, just eating dinner like normal. I am not on any medication yet, I haven't gotten to see a psychiatrist

    hello

    ​meds could help you but it's not always the answer,also adrenaline blocker could put you back on the right track too, however some use tibetan herbs to treat anxiety and depression they have proven to be very good but can be rather expensive for a 4 week course.but you do need to nip this in the bud now and not let the dam anxiety symptoms get a stronger hold.i do feel for the younger generation to suffer with this, things will get better for you but dont do it alone get help

    take care

    Maybe move back home for a bit. Do you need to live alone at 19? See an endocrinologist. Have you had mono? Do you have epstein barr? The endocrinologist are well trained and cn help you figure this out.they do different bloodwork then a regulr doc.
